Indeed I do! (No way in hell I'm admitting to knowing a Barry Manilow song .) I rate Ray Davies as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, both for the observational-social stuff like 'Lola' and 'Dead End Street' (so obviously ripped off by the Clash...) and the beautiful personal stuff like 'Waterloo Sunset' and 'Days'. His lyrics are so innocent and so mundane that they're really unlike anything else in pop music. It's really just as well they never cracked America, I've always thought.Maxiton said:When you say Lola, do you mean this one by the Kinks?Cannibal72 said:Also, I note earlier in this thread discussions of 'Lola', a song I love so much that I named my puppy (who is unquestionably a girl, for the record) after it. That makes it hard to listen to it with her in earshot, though.
