Song of the Day # 980 Dave Berry

Sixties English Pop Star, known for various things; the original version of The Crying Game; Don't Gimme No Lip; later covered by the Sex Pistol's; and this, which was a Number One in Belgium and Holland where he still has celebrity status. This is a Ray Davies song, a fact that is immediately recognisable, and was also covered by The Kinks. It seems unmistakeably a sixties artifact, a product when this stuff, these emotions and the instrumentation and presentation all seemed so fresh and new.
