Anyway If you haven't listened to The Kinks or are only familiar with "You Really Got Me" than you're missing out. It's a shame that a year long touring ban in the US sort of hindered them. I wonder if there was no ban if they would be wildly popular in the U.S. like they deserve to be.
Not only did they have killer tunes, but their lyrics were just as good. Their lyrics had depth and humor, they could paint a clear mental picture of the English countryside or they can attack dreary aspects of life and they can make you think even after the song ends.
Celluloid Heroes celebrates old Hollywood, the glamour of movies and fame and the loneliness that can accompany fame.
Remember my post last week, A Dedicated Follower of Fashion? Well, this is where I found my title. Ray Davies adds a lot of character to this song and it's so catchy.
If you're a fan of the Kinks, what's your favorite song? If this was your first real exposure to the band I hope you continue to explore their material, then you may buy the t-shirt.
