Lou Reed

 

Meanwhile, celebrate Lou Reed’s astonishing eclectic genius with this amazing version of Perfect Day – my all time favourite Lou Reed song amongst a bunch of brilliant works – put together with an astounding collection of musical talent by the BBC for a promotional item. This video has been by 1.7 million people so far. I bet there’ll be a few more hits now. Wonderful. Sheerly, unforgettably wonderful.

And as a bonus, 1981’s O Superman by Laurie Anderson, Lou’s widow, as originally shown at MOMA in New York. One can hardly imagine what a dinner party with these two talents together would have been like. Our sympathies for Laurie and a wish that time heals her sadness.
