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.
