Check Out The SuBo Version Of Perfect Day!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic MinuteSuper SeniorsSusan Boyle


This sounds lovely!

It's extremely unfortunate that he wouldn't give her permission to perform it!

Check out (below) a clip of Susan Boyle singing Lou Reed's Perfect Day, which she was also set to perform on America's Got Talent - before the old fart nixed the plans!

    That 'old fart' that you're talking about happens to be a legend in the music industry. As opposed to a woman, who has a wonderful voice, but will most likely forgotten in five years. If that.

  2. 2

    She fucked it up.

  3. 3

    Horrible rendition of a very good song. She always thinks she's singing in a church, for God's sake!

  4. 4

    If you wrote a song that meant something to you while you were going through heroin withdraw, do you think you would want some hack to ruin and water it down for mass consumption? There's a reason people still like Lou Reed. He never sold out.

    Re: antistar – Exactly. Lou Reed is no "old fart". He's an icon. Sorry she was "devastated" but figure out if you have the rights to sing something BEFORE you decide to sing it. Poor execution on her managements part, and she should be blaming them, not Lou.

  6. 6

    and I will not listen to that shit because I don't want to ruin what is truly a beautiful song.

  7. 7

    God Bless her poor soul, but aren't there enough people who sing amazingly well that aren't batshit crazy? People who won't fuck up an oppotunity, people who will have a back up song when given the chance to perform in front of a bajillion people. Go back to the paddy, Patty. Perez, surprised you are so sympathetic with this one. Shes so ripe for your venom.

  8. 8

    Maybe she could cover I'm Waiting for My Man, Sweet Jane or Heroin instead?

  9. 9

    Why is it extremely unfortunate? Fuck this ugly bitch. Why should she be given everything she cries for, because she is a tard? Do not think so. Mario, that is a 20 year old song that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the likes of Susan. Get your shit straight, Mario. Lou Reed is a rock legend, Susan Boyle is an old brit skank, just keep her the fuck over there. She doesn't sell her and we don't fucking want her.

  10. 10

    LOL i can easily understand why he stopped her from performing that horrible mess of a cover.

  11. 11

    She completely missed the tone of the song. All wrong. ALL WRONG.
    Also, *HE* didn't tell her she couldn't do it. Way to keep up.

  12. 12

    Perez, Lou's a legend, famously quirky, and if he doesn't want his song performed for whatever reason, you both should just GET OVER IT.

  13. 13

    It was her own camps fault for not seeking permission to do the song sooner. Anyway this song shouldn't be performed by her, it's taking it out of it's original context. And she blows hard.

  14. 14

    Ummmm ..i've heard Lou Reed's version and Duran Durans version of a Perfect Day. Nothing beats the Duran Duran version.. Even Lou Reed said himself that DD did the best cover of the song. SuBo should've left it alone!

  15. 15

    She should have asked permission to cover Walk on the Wild Side.
    And the Scottish girl goes doot da doot doot, doot dah doot, doot dah doot…

    Someone screwed up, and it wasn't Subo. Her entourage should have clearly known whether she had permission to perform the number before she rehearsed it, and certainly not this close to the show. They're fired, hehe. Not everyone is on the sell, sell bandwagon, as Mr. Reed's answer demonstrates; but what's up, anyway, with Mr. Lou Reed here?

  17. 17

    Fuck you Perez. Lou Reed and Susan Boyle's names should never even appear in the same sentence. I cannot deal with another fucking susan boyle is freaking out about something ridiculous post! She belongs in a mental ward, not on tv.

  18. 18

    Thank you Susan Boyle, that's absolutely beautiful, but of course I knew that you can make even that song sound great.
    I still think you should pull it from your CD. That disgusting old piece of garbage Reed allowed it on the CD so he could earn huge profits and now won't let you sing it!! He deserves sh!t.
    Pull it.

  19. 19

    Re: redmond – And fuck you! You fucking moron, you obviously don't know what fucking Reed pulled. Read and learn (if you can) before you open your fucking mouth and make an ass out of yourself.

  20. 20

    Tell it like it is, Perez! This rendition is stunning and makes me realize the reason this man did not want Susan to sing it is that it puts his performances to shame!!!!

  21. 21

    I love this version. Reed really should let Susan Boyle sing it on America's Got Talent.

  22. 22

    You know what? When Susan Boyle starts holding babies over balconies, shaving her head and having a court take away her children, wrecking cars and going in and out of jail and/or rehab, perhaps you could say something about her mental stability. Judging by the behavior or your "icon" and many performers today, she is amazingly normal as well as gracious and kind which, unfortunately, cannot be said for many or you.

  23. 23

    Re: antistar
    Yeah ! Lou Reed would never sell his music to corporations,except for Honda (scooters),iPhone,AT&T and Mars Bars.

  24. 24

    Re: moxiecrimefighter – There's nothing like an open mind and that's exactly what you have.

  25. 25

    Re: Centsitive Guy – Susan's not "batshit crazy" enough to be a junkie.

  26. 26

    Perezhilton, thanks for posting this audio clip. I could feel that you are a very kind man. I love Susan's cover of "Perfect Day". I just got to listen the whole song on idolator. It is just amazing. Thank you..

    Re: antistar

    I could not agree more!

    o.m.g. the only lame thing is this version. A freaking choir singing Lou Reed?! I know you're young Perez and prolly haven't heard the original and don't even really know who Lou Reed is, but that was pathetic.
    Yes, she has a lovely voice, but it's almost sacriledge for her to sing that song.
    her record co needs to get her a writer and she can do songs written for her.

    dreadful. the producer should be flogged. this song is so simple and meaningful it would have soared had susan boyle sang it without the angelic sensurround. bad call, bad taste. great song.

  30. 30

    H O R R I B L E ….. the first time the world heard her sing was amazing …. after that, it is like listening to a train wreck. Any rendition of any song that I have heard her sing is just H O R R I B L E ….. Go Away.

  31. 31

    Re: tina2055

    H O R R I B L E…Is that what you see when you look in the mirror? You sound like a constipated worm. Haven't gotten laid in years? Try a razor blade dildo.

  32. 32

    I just can't stad to hear this retard anymore!!!!!Hahaha!

  33. 33

    Re: Poindexter-X – You are soooo right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. 34

    she f*cking butchered it!!!!
    no wonder he said no…

  35. 35

    I'm glad he stopped her from singing this train wreck of a cover. The arrangement is HORRIBLE.. her voice does not fit the tone of this song/material.

    You really need to have your ears checked pigface because you like some god awful fucking music/vocals

  36. 36

    SuBo, show Lou how that song (if you can call it a song) should be done.
    One thing that's undeniable is that Lou is NO singer.

  37. 37

    That's so lovely.

  38. 38

    OMG I can't believe that woman has made millions selling her singing voice.

  39. 39

    Gee guys, why all the hate? She is a normal person like all of us, why are you calling her a tard? I bet all of you think you look like Brad Pitt, go look at yourself in the mirror again. Just because she is not beautiful like all the plastic pop shit that lyp sinchs doesn't mean she isn't talented. She has a nice voice, yes she sings like if it were a church choir but its because she has been singing for soooo many years in a church choir. She sings better than all the plastic artists out there. You should just shut the fuck up and respect other people's choices. Go back to listen to Biebs.

    Does no-one realise that Lou Reed probably has nothing against Subo….but DOES have a problem with the trash that is American Idol?. He probably didn't want his beautiful song associated with this car crash tv
