On today’s date in 1995, the video for Perfect Day was filmed. In case you’re wondering and aren’t exactly caught up on your Duran history – Perfect Day was a cover (Lou Reed) included on the Thank You album.
Interestingly enough, Roger Taylor played on Perfect Day, and if you watch the video – you’ll see him back on the drums, which is of course, exactly where he belongs. I didn’t know that Roger had played on the song or was even in the video until the days of the reunion. Truthfully? I didn’t even know there was a video for Perfect Day (I guess you could say that I was busy back in 1995 and video watching was not on top of the list), and even when I eventually did see the video, I didn’t recognize Roger!
And there’s your Day in Duran History for this Monday morning.
