The Friday OT: Lou Reed; Perfect Day

On this timer the section between 2:09 and 2:39 is one of the all time great 30 seconds of modern music.

The version pasted here has no video, just Lou staring back at you. It doesn't need much visual help, y'see. He wrote this when he was 30 years old. Man, I didn't have the first clue what this contained when I was 30 and I'm only just starting to get it now. He wrote the damn thing at 30. In a world that overuses the word so much it's lost its gravitas, this song is still truly awesome.
