    I can't believe I forgot "Victoria". I'd probably put it 4th or 5th and bump Apeman.

    If you haven't heard anything from Muswell Hillbillies (album) do yourself a favor and check it out. In my opinion a top twenty album of all time. I really like almost every song.

    Re: Top 5 Kinks Songs

    Not trying to be (too) snarky, but was anyone else as surprised as I to learn that The Kinks had five (or more) songs to be ranked?

    Going WAY BACK for this one for no other reason than I myself go WAY BACK.


    Edit: I have a Kinks LP that is so old that it is monophonic (aka "mono" back in the day) and not stereo.

    Not suprised to see this response. The Kinks are one of the most underappriciated bands in rock history. It took me a while to grow into them.
