February 16th, 2017, it is the release date of the second episode of the Scottish film drama “Trainspotting” by Danny Boyle. Because of T2, the old Trainspotting is featured on the CD Rare Trax, Vol. 103 of the magazine and includes 8 cover tracks of the original soundtrack.

Last December, I did a cover version of Lou Reed’s hit “Perfect Day”, which was first released in 1972. Who does still remember that the original was produced together with Mick Ronson and David Bowie (R.I.P.)! And yes, this song became increasingly popular in year 1997 when it was featured in the film “Trainspotting”.


Perfect day… what did Lou want to tell us with the song (or himself)? I mean you can find possible results on wikipedia and so on… I felt something else when I first listened to the song. My idealization of a perfect day is different. It may result from suspicion or madness which leads the song back down to earth at the end and diverges from Reed’s “kitsch” – and of course I wanted to give it a bit of my character. I hope you like it.

You can have a first listen to ANA ANA – Perfect Day by buying the Rolling Stone magazine on January 26th, 2017 and putting in the CD “Rare Trax, Vol. 103”. If you are just too lazy or you do not have a CD player (wtf), you can get it digitally on all platforms right on time of the film release of “T2 – Trainspotting 2” on February 16th, 2017. More information will follow soon!
