step one: have a really bad week

step two: listen to lou reed’s “perfect day”

step three: think about how lou had a great career with the velvet underground and wrote and sang all those classic VU tunes, then think about his even more successful solo career. songs like “walk on the wild side”, “satellite of love” and this one “perfect day” – all three which came off his solo record “transformer” (which also has the great tune “vicious”) which was produced by david bowie and mick ronson of the spiders of mars.

step four: enjoy the VP Team’s cover of “perfect day”

step five: try not to have an awesome weekend.
