Its fame was given a boost in the s when it was featured in the film Trainspotting and after a star-studded version was released as a BBC charity single inreaching number one in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Norway.
Reed re-recorded the song for his album The Raven. The original recording, as with the rest of the Transformer album, was produced by David Bowie and Mick Ronson who also wrote the string arrangement and played piano on the track. The song begins with a short introduction consisting of 2 minor chords. Its verse is a circle of fifths progression in Bb minor. The song then moves into the choruswhich is written in the parallel major key to the verse.
The song has a sombre vocal delivery and a slow, piano-based instrumental backing. The lyric is often considered to suggest simple, conventional romantic devotion, possibly alluding to Reed's relationship with Bettye Kronstad and Reed's own conflicts with his sexualitydrug use and ego. Some commentators have further seen the lyrical subtext as displaying Reed's romanticized attitude towards a period of his own addiction to heroin.
This popular understanding of the song as an ode to addiction led to its inclusion in the soundtrack for Trainspottinga film about the lives of heroin addicts.

It was included as one of two new tracks on MacColl's compilation album Galore and reached No. MacColl has described the song as "glorious and tragic at the same time". When I was recording the new tracks for [ Galore ], I thought "Perfect Day" would be a really good song to do as a duet [and that] he would be the ideal person to sing it with me.

Satellite of Love Lou Reed. View All.This Perfect Day is a science fiction novel by American writer Ira Levinabout a technocratic dystopia. The world is managed by a central computer called UniComp referred as just "Uni" in speech which has been programmed to keep every single human on the surface of the earth in check.
People are continually drugged by means of monthly treatments delivered via transdermal spray or jet injector so that they will remain satisfied and cooperative "Family members". They are told where to live, when to eat, whom to marry, when to reproduce, and for which job they will be trained.
Everyone is assigned a counselor who acts somewhat like a mentor, confessor, and parole agent; violations against 'brothers' and 'sisters' by themselves and others are expected to be reported at a weekly confession. Everyone wears a permanent identifying bracelet which interfaces with access points that act as scanners via which Uni tells the "Family members" where they are allowed to go and what they are allowed to do.
Around the age of 62, every person is humanely euthanized by Uni with an overdose of the treatment liquids; almost anything in them is poisonous if an excess dose is given. Most of the family think that old men die of natural causes: some die at 61 or 63, so no one is too suspicious of the regularity.
Those few who happen to be resistant to the drugs, or who purposely change their behavior to avoid strong doses of some of the drugs in the monthly treatment are dealt with by the programmers of UniComp. These long-lived men and women, in their underground hideaway, constitute the real, albeit invisible, world government. They live in absolute luxury and choose their own members through a form of meritocracy. In part, people who choose, through evasion and modifying their own behavior, to leave the main Family are subtly re-directed to "nature preserves" of imperfect life on islands.
These, however, have been put in place by the programmers as a place to isolate trouble-making Family members. The top minds among the outcasts are further manipulated into trying to overthrow the "Programmers" and the ones who nearly succeeded are forced to join the programmers to "help them maintain the equilibrium" in the "perfect" world of UniComp and The Family.
Despite the name, the "programmers" are not allowed to program Uni, Wei reserves this privilege solely to himself.
Instead they do administrative work. Even the basic facts of nature are subject to the programmers' will — men do not grow facial hair, and it rains only at night. Dampers even control the movement of tectonic plates. Reference is made in the story to permanent settlements on MarsVenus and the Moonoutposts on Saturn's moon Titan and Mercury and even to interstellar space exploration; these outposts have their own equivalents of UniComp.
The full rhyme, sung by children bouncing a ball similar to a clapping game :. Wei Li Chun is the person who started the Unification, and, unbeknownst to all but the programmers and their attendants, remains alive as the head of the programmers, extending his lifespan by having his head transplanted onto successive youthful bodies. Bob Wood is mentioned throughout the novel, but never discussed in detail.
A painting is mentioned depicting Wood presenting the Unification Treaty. In one conversation in which the protagonist discusses his discovery that people once had varying lifespans, one character comments that controlling people's lifespans is the ultimate realization of the thinking of Wei and Wood. The poem also mentions Jesus Christa central figure of Christianityand presents the historical Karl Marxan ideologue of communism - the two pillars of the official state ideology depicted on its coat of arms - cross and sickle.Sign In.
