Perfect Day

Perfect Day by Various artists was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, November 29, 1997 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. In this song, Reed sings about some lovely moments that could fill a romantic comedy: drinking sangria in the park, hitting a movie, feeding the animals at the zoo. But it's all misdirection; later in the song, Reed reveals his true feelings. Reed claimed this song has nothing to do with drugs. Speaking with NME in 1973, he said: "That's a lovely song. A description of a very straightforward affair." Released as a single, it went to #1 in the UK for three weeks and earned over £2,100,000 for the charity. Versions with just the male vocalists and just the female vocalists are included on the single. This song was used in the 1996 movie Trainspotting in a scene where Renton (Ewan McGregor) overdoses on heroin. As a result of the film, many people included this song in their "smoking" mixes. The song was featured on an AT&T commercial featuring snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler that ran during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
