The Kinks

What do you all think of this band? I'm listening to Apeman right now, and I'm loving it.

Totally underrated pop band.

If you can't enjoy:

This Time Tomorrow
Lola
Celluloid Heroes
All Day and All of the Night
Waterloo Sunset
Till the End of the Day
and You Really Got Me

Then I don't know what to say.

Nice list CIB. I'm a long time Kinks fan and Shangri-La (and This Time Tomorrow LMP) has always been one of my faves. So many great songs. I think 'Days' is probably my all time #1.

Apeman Same side (on the album ) of LVPAM as This Time Tomorrow

Lola is so awesome! I used to hate that song for the L.O.L.A lola, C.O.L.A cola lyric. But I've grown to love it.

When I heard "Strangers" in the trailer for The Darjeeling Limited, I remembered how I used to own the Lola album, and that it was stolen along with a bunch of other CDs.

I need to start listening to these guys again.

Ray got in some hot water over the "drink champagne & it tastes just like coca cola" line. He had to change coca cola to cherry cola, COLA cola.

It also cast doubt upon his sexuality because of the "I'm not the world's most masculine man, but I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man, and so is Lola". Some took it as Lola also being a man, but others said Lola was just glad Ray was a man. Of course Ray was also"not the world's most physical guy, but when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine, you know my Lola". "And I'm not dumb but I can't understand why she walked like a woman, but talked like a man". Ray alluded to this at one of the storyteller shows he did here a few years ago and said there was no truth to it. Just sorta took on a life of it's own through the years. Of course this was around the time of Ziggy & Aladdin Sane when Bowie had announced his bisexuality. Despite the hippies and peace and love, society was much more naive about these things. I was in high school and I remember discussing it with my friends about what being bisexual actually meant. And this was in Hollywood!

We decided at the time that Bowie still kicked ass but we preferred the Stones.

Intedomine - At the last solo show I saw, Ray did 'Autumn Almanac'. He tried to get a sing-a-long going, but gave up because most didn't know the words. They are pretty vague in some spots. So he stopped the song and told a story about the song instead, how it was the first song in UK to go #1 that dealt entirely with gardening. It was funny,............ those solo shows were awesome.

Agree with the comments above about the Kinks being a very underrated band. A great live band as well - I was lucky to see them several times in the 70s and 80s.

One of my friends names is Lora, so we always blast Lola and sing it as Lora.

How can you not love a song like that?

For the first time right now I just listened to their song "This Time Tomorrow." They have amazing lyrics. Ray kind of sounds like Bono in this song.
