Wedding Song: Perfect Day

How has this stayed off my list of best wedding songs for so long?!

This Lou Reed song isn’t a “classic” wedding song, per se, and sometimes it can feel a bit darker than the lyrics intend (listed below), but it’s still one of those songs that is so good it deserves to be considered for your wedding song…if you’re fan, that is!

There are a couple of Lou Reed/Velvet Underground tracks that I would love to suggest as a wedding song (like Pale Blue Eyes), but the lyrics tend to not be super appropriate. These lyrics, however, are spot on and would be really sweet to either walk down the aisle to (even an instrumental version would be awesome) or use as a first dance song.

Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
And then later, when it gets dark
We go home

Just a perfect day
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later a movie, too
And then home

Oh, it’s such a perfect day
I’m glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It’s such fun

Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh, it’s such a perfect day
I’m glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You’re going to reap just what you sow
You’re going to reap just what you sow
You’re going to reap just what you sow
You’re going to reap just what you sow
