Lyrics How Are You ? Kinks EXCLUSIVE
"You Really Got Me" was built around power chords (perfect fifths and octaves) and heavily influenced later rock musicians, particularly in the genres of heavy metal and punk rock. Built around a guitar riff played by Dave Davies, the song's lyrics were described by Dave as "a love song for street kids".
Lyrics How Are You – Kinks
"Girl, you really got me going"A classic song from the kinks, and whilst it doesn't have any theme of progression (in lyrics or musically) it's just a very fun song, and that's a big part of music, once you break it down to a mathematical formula, it's just not fun anymore
An album filled with European love songs instead of opera arias seems like taking a day off for Bocelli. Singing in Spanish, French, English, and Italian, the popular tenor rarely mounts grand fortissimo forays to the top of his range. Instead, he delivers standards like "Besame Mucho" and "Les Feuilles Mortes (Autumn Leaves)" in a sweet, sensitive, unlabored, and characteristically sincere style. Guest artists Christina Aguilera, Kenny G, and Stevie Wonder drop in on a few tracks, but never take over. The CD culminates with the inspirational "Because We Believe," featuring Bocelli's own lyrics, which he'll perform Sunday at the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics. Fans should gobble up this aural confection, while critics can be satisfied that he's found his true calling - as a consummate Euro-balladeer. Grade: B- Gregory M. Lamb
What happens when you remove all the Kinks from Ray Davies? A solo album that sounds as if they'd never left. Ten years after the last official Kinks offering, the leader of that influential band is in a ruminative mood, bowed by the challenges of aging and contemplating his own Waterloo sunset. It's an uneven effort - the bland studio musicians can't touch the sloppy exuberance of his ex-bandmates, and the lyrics' obsession with age and health gets a bit old. But when Davies's ageless voice is pushed forward in the mix on tracks like the Kinksian "After the Fall" and the warm, wistful "Next Door Neighbour," the magic is back and all is forgiven. Suddenly it's Ray being Ray again. And for those of us tired of waiting all these years, that's saying something. Grade: B- John Kehe
Sudol grew up on a steady diet of oldies radio, the kind that your parents used to make you listen to in the car. The Kinks, the Monkees, The Beatles and the Mamas and the Papas all earned honorable mentions. Her dad gets the credit for introducing her to classical music at an early age, forever cementing a notion that lyrics were only part of the equation. 350c69d7ab
