Congrats to Mr. Ray Davies on the new album “See My Friends.” The record features some notable acolytes, fans and pals teaming up with Mr. Davies on several songs past and present.
…then I got to thinking, if IIIIII could cover a Kinks song, what would it be? This is by no means my favorite Kinks song (a tall order figuring that one out!) but it’s one that always thrills me with its bluesy undertones, bass-line, crescendo, unexpected tempo change and all around awesomeness. (The second song, “Picture Book,” is also killer if only for the words “a-shooby dooby do.” They don’t make cool the way they used to, I’ll tell you what!)
What about you? Do you have a favorite Kinks song?
