When Heartwarming Voices KIRSTY MACCOLL & EVAN DANDO Have A Perfect LOU REED Day…

‘Perfect Day’
Covered by KIRSTY MACCOLL & EVAN DANDO
Original by LOU REED

Just one of those rare, magical moments when two memorable artists come together
to cover a timeless classic of a legendary icon in an unforgettable, touching way. That’s what the gorgeous KIRSTY MACCOLL and Lemonheads troubadour EVAN DANDO did with PERFECT DAY, one of the highlights on LOU REED‘s 1972 album Transformer. They turned this reflective diamond into something really touching special. Dreamy, romantic and heartwarming. You actually can feel the wondrous sensation of a ‘perfect day’. And, yes, the fact that MacColl and Reed already left us for another universe colors this pearl exceptionally melancholic. I guess we should cherish every single day to come…

This cover was the closing track on Kirsty Maccoll‘s 1995 compilation LP, titled GALORE.
