Today in Duran History – Perfect Day

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!

*gasps*

And there’s your Day in Duran History for this Monday morning.

  1. I was still in my coma on this day in 1995, so I could enjoy the clip better a little later.
    Seeing Roger palying drums in the clip too was a real feeling of hope for us to have Roger permanently back in the band, after realizing he played in a couple of tracks on the album, but up to 2001 nothing of what you and I hoped happened.
