TC is Reading my Mind
This is too weird — and great! As I left the cafe 'S Nice on Friday after attempting to speak German for an hour, my mind slightly garbled, I noticed The Kinks were playing on the box. Okay, it was "You Really Got Me," but as I walked out onto 8th Avenue, the song continued in my head, and I started to think about the opening guitar riff, how the success of the song depends on that, the rhythm and the right amount of raunchiness in the sound. I made a mental note: another record to introduce to Oliver and Isaac. I'd actually got them Arthur, or The Decline and Fall of the British Empire, a couple of years ago, but thought I had "You Really Got Me" on vinyl. I actually don't, which is fine, as I can hear it clear as day. Then I checked the blog and saw the TC post below.
