Learn to Play Perfect Day by Lou Reed
Perfect Day by Lou Reed is a perfectly dreamy song! Can you play it at all? Oh it's such a perfect day.... If I had a Perfect Day I'd like to spend it with you and teach you this wonderful song! I had to make this lens 100 - the song has been going through my head all day long in the Lou Reed version and Susan Boyle's video of Perfect Day gave me the tingles the other day.
Velvet Underground - what a great name to conjure with! However, Lou Reed made Perfect Day with David Bowie producing shortly after he left Velvet Underground. It features on the album Transformer. So... for my 100th lens I would like to do something really special and share what I know about this gorgeous song, maybe show you how to play the chords, perhaps encourage you to sing along with a video or two or simply just listen to some gorgeous music! So - let's play Perfect Day by Lou Reed.

Lou Reed's song is harmonically rich with smooth key changes throughout. This makes it a little complicated to play. I put this graphic together to give you the chords you need to play the song. One of the reasons for the dark emotional depth is that the song Perfect Day is actually played with a capo at fret 1. This means it starts basically in B flat minor - the five flats give the verse of Perfect Day a rich, dreamy, dark and warm quality. In the chorus in reverts to the major key and B flat is a strong, solid sounding key. This really lifts it. In the rock genre, Perfect Day is a Perfect Masterpiece!

Lou Reed Sings Perfect Day - Perfect Day by Lou Reed
Respect to the man himself! I am not sure why this song Perfect Day is classified as Glam Rock, but I don't really care. Lou Reed has reinvented himself many, many times!
Inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame in 1996, the Velvet Underground “opened wounds worth opening with brutal imagery, without apology” (Patti Smith) and influenced many, many bands.
Perfect Day - A poem
Perfect Day - A Poem Influenced by Lou Reed
Written at a time of deep personal trouble, this poem was a testament to faith and gratitude....
It's such a perfect day....
Rain showers my windshield,
Mud flies in abandon.
I drive slowly,
To each sly bend in the river
Of glistening tarmac -
I'd like to spend it with you....
Oh! It's such a perfect day....
Bashful children guiltily smile,
Red faced, but eager,
Practice a legend,
Yet obediently play
Bright Yuletide songs.
They just keep me hanging on.....
And you keep me hanging on
Through the bliss of inner sunshine;
Snatched free time walking
Through rain-scoured streets
Gilt framed with fiery golden charm
Of Autumn hedgerows
And vibrant living conifer green.
Cold wind bids me
Turn my collar
Yet promises the snug warmth
Of my Spartan workroom.
Timid rays creep smiling,
Bashful as clumsy children,
Between drizzling clouds;
Foretaste of a bold parade
Through golden guard of honour
On winding, tree-lined lanes.
Fresh air! Fresh joy! Fresh puddles
To skim in silent laughter
My journey into blithe instruction.....
You just keep me hanging on
In Faith, in Love, in Gratitude -
Such a Perfect Day!
