Song of the Day, July 10: Perfect by John Cale

CalePerfectToday’s song is Perfect by John Cale. Since his unceremonious ouster from the Velvet Underground, Cale has regularly turned out amazing albums ranging from the experimental to solid rock. Four decades into his solo career he released blackAcetate, one of his strongest offerings.

Perfect is a deceptively simple love song. Cale is in strong voice as he chants a series of declarations ranging from outright need to self deprecation to celebration. Energetic, catchy, and compelling, the song shows off a joyous, almost whimsical side of the famously avant garde musician.

Enjoy this wonderful song today.
