One Perfect Day is pretty close to being One Perfect Song.

This song just hits the spot … when I ranked it in the Radio Ga Ga Top 30 Aussie Songs I wrote “It brings together a sad yet hopeful sounding storyline with a beautifully melodic tune, understated in so many ways. From the simple piano introduction through to the end, there is not a wasted note or superfluous lyric.”

My only complaint is about the start of the video – I can’t help think that the piano player was taking his role a little too seriously. Don’t look at him – just listen to this beautiful song.

To give you just a little hint of the four remaining songs, One Perfect Day is the highest ranked Australian one-hit wonder – check out number four tomorrow!
