    Cause he's oh, so good
    And he's oh, so fine
    And he's oh, so healthy
    In his body and his mind

    Kinks have always been kind of a quirky band and the Davies' brothers were as quirky as any two could be, at least until Oasis came along.

    Lola has been one of my favorite songs for more than forty years, not particularly because of its story, but because of an image which has stuck in my memory ever since a then-and-current good friend of mine took a great liking to the song after we had seen the Kinks in concert in 1972 in Germany. It simply brings back good times.

    Ray is now of the establishment : who would have thought ?

    That was the first thing that crossed my mind but I resisted the temptation, cause that is the type of person I choose to be. I see that you, sir, were unable to exercise the same restraint, but I wonder if those who avoid CE will have any idea why the question has arisen in this context.

    The political context is the only reason this thread was started in the first place. I just decided to play along.

    That's not true at all. I was and still am a huge Kinks fan and chose 'Lola' because I figured it was their most recognizable song. It's not my favorite of theirs, this is:

    Oh Geez, I apologize if my post came across as critical in any way. I was just poking fun at the whole issue and the fact that I had almost written a post identical to yours.

    FWIW, this was the second album I purchased with my own money in 1964. 'Meet The Beatles' was the first.

    Too Bad he couldn't have been knighted by this lady. That could have been a little interesting.
