Ohhhhhh, thank you for the Kinks today, and especially for this song! I confess I paid less attention to this song by the great Kinks than others. Today you brought it to the forefront of my mind and memory and I appreciate it so much more now. Carnabetian! What?! Never gave it a thought until now. Always learn something when I drop by – so glad I did. You rock, Mr. Shoemaker!
