On Ray Davies' 73rd birthday I decided to put up the title song from his latest album, Americana. What is so interesting to me is that The Kinks and all the 'British Invasion' bands brought England to this young teenager in New England. The music led me to study British literature in college. Much of my reading still is by British writers, and my television viewing is almost exclusively British shows.
I've written about Ray quite a few times here in my letters. You may just type his name into the search bar if you're interested.
After the Americana video, I've also posted two short ones about his knighthood. Sir Ray!
PS - You may read where Ray for the day comes from here. Ten years ago today!!
