Artist: The Kinks
Favorite Lyric: Well I’m not the world’s most masculine man
But I know what I am and I’m glad I’m a man
And so is Lola
Significance: I’m more impressed with The Kinks that I think I should be. Ray Davies is a fantastic storyteller and the lyric above, when in the context of the rest of this song, is one of my all-time favorites. Makes you do a little bit of a double take with its cleverness. And it’s just a good rock song to boot.
