Best Rendition of "Perfect Day?"

I was attracted to “Perfect Day” by this BBC version. But the Lou Reed version, monotone as it is, seems quite popular.

**Who has the best version of this lovely tune?

Damn, Susan Boyle got some pipes!

I was going to mention the Susan Boyle version. Love it. I seem to recall that I know of another great one, but I can’t remember what I’m thinking of at all right now.

Also, I’m guessing you meant this to be in Cafe Society, so I reported it for you.

For a less melodramatic version, I like Faith Yang & Eason Chan (stop the video after the song is done to avoid a spoiler for the movie Taiyo no Uta). Though “After Hours” is actually her best Lou Reed cover.

That version (on your link) is not available in my area.

Duran Duran - Perfect Day

See if you can watch via this link. It’s a somewhat crappy recording of a live performance, and it’s not complete, but you get the idea.

Since there is no factual answer possible, moved from GQ to Cafe Society.

Wait until I break out my ontological argument. You’ll see. You’ll all see! MUAHAHAHA!

I prefer Lou’s if asked, so I am going to add a pretty good one and we can hash out which is best later.
