The Kinks, Sunny Afternoon














Part 66 of my countdown is the Kinks again, this time with “Sunny Afternoon,” from Face to Face.  This is a boozy depressed sunny pop song about the downside of being a rich famous rock star.  The tax man took all his money, his girlfriend left and stole his car, and Ray’s got nothing left but a sunny afternoon, writing some of the world’s greatest pop music apparently.  The funny thing about this video is the irony of them performing the song on a freezing cold snowy day, adding to the songs dripping sarcasm and irony, which is great.  And of course its great, its the KINKS!  One of the greatest bands of all time!  I’m just happy to give them a home to hang out in on my site for everyone to watch while they straighten out their financial situation.

    Dude I gotta say that your blog is awesome, I mean really. Love the way you write about the tracks/albums listed and love the way you add your own personal anecdote for good measure – equally though is your love for one of our princely groups, The Kinks. Here’s something for you; I lived 4 doors down from Ray Davies in Muswell Hill, North London many years ago & saw an impromptu concert by the Crouch End Festival Chorus led by Mr Davies himself in 2007 in Crouch End London singing one or two songs from his yet to be then released album – great down to earth guy! Keep up the great blog, superb!
