1970. Not my favorite Kinks song (though I dig it), but it is the one that made me want to hear a lot more.
I love this song so much... Bloody youtube won't let me embed the cool 1970 top of the pops video, so here's just a boring album cover version.
This is probably one of the most covered songs ever and it's hard to choose one of the covers. The Sonics were contemporaries of The Kingsmen, and this is a distinctly different sound. [Edited]
So apparently it's #NaughtyWeek -
the song mentions cherry cola and champagne so including it in #FoodWeek as well
The lead singer's hairstyle and white blazer are reminiscent of Caitlin...cuh cuh cuh cuh Caitlin...
The Kinks had it nailed way back when!
At number 85..........one of the best bands to emerge out of the early to mid sixties period.......how can you not sing along to Lola?????
