#AtoZChallenge: The Kinks

WINNER #05: Congratulations KYRA LENNON! Drop me an email to let me know which album of mine you want and I'll send you a download link.

So the Kinks really got me going. They got me so I can't sleep at night! Yeah ... they really got me now, they got me so I don't know what I'm doing ... am I writing a blog post? Whoops ... I don't have much more to say today except that I'm pretty revved up with all that getting going, I mean ... how can anyone not love the Kinks?

What bands/songs get you going?

Don't forget to drop by Dawn Ius' blog, my partner in crime, to see her music pick for K.

  1. Great minds think alike. I have the Kink's Waterloo Sunset on my today's A to Z.
    A to Z of Nostalgia

  2. Congratulations to Kyra. Lucky!

    I enjoyed them in the 80s too. They had decent MTV airtime.

  3. I'd have had Sunny Afternoon, but they're all great songs. ~Miriam

  4. I grew up listening to a lot of 60s music - the Kinks were definitely a favourite. I think you make a very valid point: how can anyone not like them?

  5. I remember seeing the Kinks on The Ed Sullivan show. LOved them.

  6. Thank so much for the album, I can't believe I won!

    I really like the Kinks a lot too. They had way more great songs than most people realise.

  7. That was probably one of their best songs. Congratulations, Kyra!

  8. Kinky! Two doses of the Kinks in one day. Thanks Jessica and Rosalind.

  9. I love the Kinks! Come dancing.....

  10. Such a well done post--and blog. I'm impressed.

  11. Love your theme for the challenge. Look forward to your AZ posts.

  12. The Kinks were awesome - I even loved 'Come Dancing' which nobody else seemed to like :-)

  13. YEAH! Finally a group I know and LOVE! I'm particularly of the songs Strangers and This Time Tomorrow off their Lola v Powerman album.

  14. Kira Lennon won. How fun.

  15. That was a great song by the Kinks. Some music just has more staying power, especially if we identify with that particular song. Or if it reminds us of an event in our life (concert, music festival, etc.

    Thanks for the musical reminder. . .

  16. Lola, lo-lo-lo-lo-lola! That song has a special place in my heart. :)

  17. I didn't know that song was by "The Kinks"!

    My brother and I loved "My Little Run-Away" with the great organ solo. Can't remember the artist at this very moment.

  18. My mum introduced me to the Kinks ;)
