Song of the Week: "Come Dancing"

I was seven when this Kinks song came out. It was everywhere for a bit. It took me years to realize that this was actually the same band that sang "Lola," and that that was the same band that sang "You Really Got Me." Great longevity there; I have a two-disc career-spanning Kinks collection that is just a fantastic listen. This is one of those songs like Madness' "Our House" that just makes me miss being a kid.

For my intro to ABC Wednesday for B (in a couple weeks), I specifically cited this song "having a BALL."
If you have the same 2-CD collection I have, it is GREAT!

I've come to appreciate the variety of music the Kinks put out, although the only album of theirs I have is Village Green Preservation Society.

If you're only going to have one, though, THAT'S the one to have.
