Everyone knows who Susan Boyle is: she's the lady from the United Kingdom who wowed TV and internet audiences when she performed on Britain's Got Talent last year, and her version of "I Dreamed A Dream" left even Simon Cowell speechless. Since then, Ms. Boyle has released two albums and both reached #1 in the U.S. and U.K. within the space of a year--a milestone achieved previously by only the Monkees in 1967 and the Beatles in 1969.
Fast company, indeed!
This week's video, "Perfect Day," was written by Susan's good friend Lou Reed, and has been covered many times. In fact, Lou--generally referred to as an irascible rock icon--actually co-directed this week's video! Wow! All the planets have aligned!
We are told that Lou also created the concept for this video--and if you discern it, please let us know ASAP--but didn't actually travel to the Firth of Fifth, or wherever the hell it was shot. 'Cause he's Lou Reed.
So, once again, we're proud to bring you folks an important new video that will echo throughout the ages and impact our collective future. But, remember: we only do it out of boredom!
Important blog note! Readers will be happy to hear that this week we've got another "Guess which one Robert wrote." Yes, Robert--who is one out of the many dozens of Y! Music employees who toil behind the scenes for Framed, and are very low-paid--has graciously agreed to write another one of our captions this week.
In Robert's own words: "I felt like I was being pretty mean but it's all in good fun." That's right, Robert. Good...fun. Absolutely none of this is a lashing out at the pointlessness of existence itself.
So, without further ado, we invite everyone to study this week's captions and "Guess which one Robert wrote." You'll be glad you did!
