The Kinks

How can it be that there are 10 Beatles threads in the B&C index, 6 Rolling Stones threads and not a single Kinks thread?

A couple of things got me thinking about the Kinks recently. In the Guitar World interview with the Edge the interviewer comments on how Vertigo sounds like a straight-ahead classic rock song and asks if he still listens to that stuff to which he replys, "Nope. Well...the Kinks."

Then while visiting a friend last weekend he puts in a Kinks BBC disc with a bunch of interviews and live tracks, great stuff. I can't get "Everybody's gonna be Happy" out of my head now.

I was just thinking about the Kinks last night. I was at a show with four bands and the first one had obviously been listening to the Kinks. And I mean that in a good way.

Then I was thinking that I need a Kinks greatest hits album or something to listen to. I've been feeling a trip to Tower coming on anyway.

Yeah. They've got some great songs . Some of my favorite artists were influenced by 'em, too.

Ray Davies is quite underated, and quite talented. I've seen the Kinks, and I've seen Ray Davies twice. I believe he was the inspiration for the VH1 Storytellers series, as I think he was the first. He's great, the band is great. Some of their songs...

You Really Got Me
All Day & All Of The Night
Around The Dial
Dedicated Follower Of Fashion
Set Me Free
Sunny Afternoon
Til The End Of The Day
Tired Of Waiting For You
Waterloo Sunset
(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman

and of course,

Celluloid Heroes
(everybody's a dreamer...and everybody's a star...)

There are several songs that, for some reason or another, make my best friend and I think of each other. "Lola" is one of them.
"Knight in shining Zubaz."
