Perfect Day?

Theo Van Gogh buried today... murdered, apparently, for his art (although not all the facts are in). In any case, I found his films online and thought them touching and inspiring.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands is seething with
fear, violence and hatred ...

The mourners left his funeral to the strains of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day".

People are leaving cactus plants, beer and cigarettes at the place where he was slain. It was a trademark gift that he gave to people on his TV show after he battered them in his interview.

Source page for MP3 is here - with lyrics in English.

Excessively easy guitar tab here in case you want to play it.
