    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?


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    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.
