Susan Boyle Covers Lou Reed

After making her cry because he wouldn't let her perform it on America's Got Talent, Lou Reed made amends and personally directed the video of Susan Boyle's cover of his classic, Perfect Day. (Apparently it wasn't such a perfect day at the shoot, with violent Scottish weather blowing the wig off of Boyle's stand-in.) And in the same way that people think the Police's creepy ode to stalking, Every Breath You Take, is a love song, Boyle clearly missed the self-hatred and recriminations inherent in Reed's original as it's part of her coming Christmas album. But what do I know, I loved the circuit party version.
