Do you think the people that made the Olympic comercial using Lou Reed's song: Perfect Day realize what that song is about?

Well, it can be perfect for a Jamaican bobsledder:

I thought I was someone else, someone good

I am a huge Lou Reed fan.

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

It's just as appropriate as Microsoft using the Stones' Start Me Up, which has the lyrics "You make a grown man cry"

It's more appropriate than the playing of the Police song "Every Breath You Take" at weddings!

For anybody who doesn't know - it's not romantic, it's about unrequited love, jealousy and stalking.
