Ok Guys! Question time.

I DLed "A Perfect Day" because it had "Bono" on it. It definitly has David Bowie, Lou Reed, Elton John, Cher and Pavarotti on it among others.

Who else is on the song? Is this an original song or is it a tribute to someone?

Thanks!

it was orginally written and performed by Lou Reed. Other than that, I'm sure it's some tribute or something, I think by the BBC?

that has a poor qaulity version of the video, and info on all the artists.

The charity was Children In Need, an annual charity thing here in the uk, where celebrities often do things like that.

Those crazy celebrities, they should do a benefit called: "Jeni needs a two bedroom apartment in manhattan and 300 million dollars to live on for the rest of her life and two cats."

But they don't do they?

The song was originally written by Lou Reed and produced by David Bowie for Lou's second solo album, Transformer, after the breakup of The VU. It has been covered by just about everybody and their dog (the dog in question being Duran Duran who made a rather sloppy cover of it).

Not sure who your Cher soundalike is... are you referring to Heather Small from M People maybe??

As for "Pavarotti", that's probably Thomas Allen.

Btw, if you can download the all male version of Perfect Day, Bono has a couple of extra lines on that one. It's quite a crappy version apart from that, though... the mixed one is much better!
