The Kinks – The Artist
The Kinks are an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1964 by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. They are regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of the 1960s. The band emerged during the height of British rhythm and blues and Merseybeat, and were briefly part of the British Invasion of the United States. Their third single, the Ray Davies-penned “You Really Got Me”, became an international hit, topping the charts in the United Kingdom and reaching the Top 10 in the United States. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country. They gained a reputation for reflecting English culture and lifestyle, fuelled by Ray Davies’ observational writing style, and are considered one of the most influential groups of the period.
Days – The Song
“Days” is a song by the Kinks, written by lead singer Ray Davies, released as a single in 1968. The song was an important single for Davies and the Kinks, coming in a year of declining commercial fortunes for the band. The song had been intended as an album track but after the relative failure of the previous single “Wonderboy”, “Days” was rushed out as a single with an old unreleased track “She’s Got Everything” as the B-side. It reached No. 12 on the UK chart. The song appeared on a UK advertisement for the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet in 2011. Lyrically the song thanks the singers partner for the days that they had together.
The Heart – The Shape
The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
