The Kinks – Victoria

Now that the holidays are over, it’s pretty much salad and water for a while. Holiday food is such an important part of the holiday over here and while it’s all very nice, it’s so filling and just too much after a few weeks. After another 50 weeks, I’m sure I’ll be ready for more of it but for now, it’s time to rest and eat light.

    I like the Kinks, but I prefer The Fall’s version of Victoria.

    Great band, The Kinks! ‘Victoria’ is one of Ray Davies’ great songs and the original recording of it is one of The Kinks great records.

    Here’s the original from 1969: http://youtu.be/z2GHlcwlT1Y

    And here’s Ray doing it at Glastonbury in 2010 with a full choir : http://youtu.be/brlLHo8fqJM
