100 BEST KINKS SONGS, 1964 - 1972

"It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world"

Want to bring order to a small part of it? Why not spend some time this summer with the Kinks? And while you're at it, cast your votes for the 100 BEST KINKS SONGS. You might as well ...all we've got's this sunny afternoon. And, I'll bring the gooseberry tarts!

I realize there are many games on the board right now which is why I decided to go with a different format than the usual 1+ vote / 1- vote thing.

I want to give credit where credit is due. I patterned the structure of this game after Rand's 100 most important rock album game a while back.

The object of the game is to create a list of the 100 BEST KINKS SONGS in descending order. Here's how it works:

You can vote for 3 SONGS A DAY. That's right. You have three votes a day ...but they should go to three different songs, not 3 votes for 1 song. Since everyone is on different time zones, we will all go by the Amazon clock.

There are NO NEGATIVE VOTES!

Your vote gives a song one point. When a song has received 100 votes, it will be locked in at the number one position for our 100 BEST KINKS SONG list. Since there are no negative votes, this cannot be undone. It is #1. The next song to reach 100 votes is locked in at #2 and so on. We will continue until each song has enough votes to make the list, and we have our list of 100 songs.

I have compiled a list of 136 Kinks songs. That means some songs might not make the list at all! Don't let that happen to your favorites!

As you know, the prolific Kinks have many, many more than 136 songs in their amazing catalog. I hope everyone approves of the criteria I used to pare it down to a manageable size! All songs on the list are self-penned from the period extending from their formation in 1964 through their "Golden Age" to 1972, stopping short of their foray into more theatrical work. The list includes songs from ten studio albums (UK releases) during this period, as well as the EP's and charting singles that were released. No compilation or live albums.

Please let me know of any errors I may have made or any suggestions you have to make the voting go more smoothly!

EDIT UPDATE: The list now consists of 147 titles after being expanded to include the B-sides of charting singles.

Thanks for voting, BrkfstClub! :)
You've got the right idea ...but in reverse!
The running totals go next to the song titles in the list. You indicate what songs you voted for at the bottom of the list
If you look at another voting game already in progress in the forum, you'll see what I mean.

In reply to an earlier post on May 31, 2012 10:42:47 AM PDT
I believe that's Gidget with an "et." Now I'm waiting for YOU to "do it" ...vote, that is!

1972

Celluloid Heroes

The best song the Kinks ever made is not on this list?

SA read the first post to see the parameters for this game. Does the song in question fall within those parameters? If it does we can add it!

In reply to an earlier post on May 31, 2012 11:04:33 AM PDT
Stopping short of their foray into more theatrical work... Everybody's in Show-Biz... I guess not. Unlucky for me you did not cover all of 1972.

In reply to an earlier post on May 31, 2012 12:00:03 PM PDT
It seemed a logical division and there needed to be one somewhere.

But after looking back over my info, I can see Everybody's in Showbiz could go either way since I do state the list as being 1964-1972. And, apparently it is considered "transitional" between the two periods.

So I will add the tracks on Disc 1 to the list, but not Disc 2 since that is live. But I will have to wait until I get home to do that ...unless you are able to perform that task for me ?

I will now add the tracks from Disk 1 of Everybody's in Showbiz (hopefully someone else is not doing the same thing right now, but it's only 10 minutes after the last post).

For the record, those 10 tracks are: Here Comes Yet Another Day, Maximum Consumption, Unreal Reality, Hot Potatoes, Sitting in My Hotel, Motorway, You Don't Know My Name, Supersonic Rocket Ship, Look a Little on the Sunny Side, and Celluloid Heroes

Note - while I was adding the above songs, I noted that Supersonic Rocketship already exists on the list.....(oh I see - it is shown as a single on the original unalphabetized list ---> I would say that also strongly argues that the Everybody's in Showbiz studio tracks should be included).

What about God's Children from 1971, both on the Percy soundtrack and a single? Plus the various non-LP B-sides and songs which ultimately came out on Kinks Kronikles or Great Lost Kinks Album?

MissMiscellanea will have to answer to that (it's MissMiscellanea's game) - I was just helping out since he/she said he/she couldn't update the game right away.

Along those same lines, there are a couple of other vocal tracks on Percy soundtrack which did not appear on those later compilations (one of which is "Moments" - and possibly "Animals In the Zoo" - don't remember if there are others - I'm not at home and therefore doing this from memory).

Having stepped on them, I have to vote for Celluloid Heroes+
If Lola does not win this game I will be stunned.

I'd argue that a lot of those missing songs would get votes (and they are not all "later" as both Kinks Kronikles and Great Lost Kinks Album have tracks dating back to 1966).

Thanks for your help, tmoore. :)
I will now go back and add that album to my listing. And also change the number to 136. This will make the competition even stiffer to make the "100." But that's okay ...I'm glad we were able to include it.

What about God's Children from 1971, both on the Percy soundtrack and a single? Plus the various non-LP B-sides and songs which ultimately came out on Kinks Kronikles or Great Lost Kinks Album?

Please go back and read my OP to see the criteria I used for compiling my list.

I said no compilation albums, and Kink Kronikles and Great Lost Kinks Album are both compilation albums. I also said U.K. releases. Even though I'm American and live in the U.S. I'm aware that for British bands it is customary to give preference to U.K. releases. The Kinks Kronikles is a U.S. release only.

Also, I specified "charting" singles. God's Children did not chart in the U.K. or the U.S. either one.

Please keep in mind that my objective was to pare down the list ...not to make it bigger. I was hoping to find a viable formula that would yield exactly 100 songs but that was not possible!

@Miss Miscellanea: I'm glad "Everybody's In Showbiz" was included, when I was reading your OP for the thread that was going to be my first suggestion. Especially since you already had "Supersonic Rocket Ship" on there. I don't mind too much that the songs from "Percy" aren't on there, but I agree with BrownFingers that some of the notable b-sides from the era like "I Need You", "I'm Not Like Everybody Else", "This Is Where I Belong", "Mr.Pleasant" and "King Kong" should be on there. They were UK b-sides *before* they were on American compilation albums, you know. :)

Thanks for your post Michael. I guess sometimes B-sides chart ...not very often, but it does happen. Did any of the B-sides you mentioned chart?
