The Kinks was een Engelse rockgroep, ontstaan in 1963. De band bestond uit singer-songwriter Ray Davies, zijn broer en tevens leadgitarist Dave Davies en bassist Pete Quaife.

Begin jaren zestig besloten de twee broers een professionele band te beginnen. De broers traden al weleens op als duo. Toen Ray Davies naar de kunstacademie ging, probeerde Dave Davies samen met Quaife een band op te richten. De naam wisselde voortdurend en toen Ray Davies definitief toetrad in 1963, noemde de band zich The Ravens. De band nam Mick Avory aan als drummer. Op advies van hun manager veranderde de naam in The Kinks.



In 1970 hadden The Kinks een grote wereldhit met Lola. De band scoorde nog vier andere nummer 1-hits met de nummers

Dedicated Follower Of Fashion, Sunny Afternoon, Waterloo Sunset en Lola [Live].

Songtekst

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I'm thinking of the days
I won't forget a single day, believe me

I bless the light
I bless the light that lights on you, believe me
And though you're gone
You're with me every single day, believe me

Days I'll remember all my life
Days when you can't see wrong from right
You took my life
But then I knew that very soon you'd leave me
But it's all right
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me

I wish today
Could be tomorrow
The night is dark
It just brings sorrow, let it wait

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I'm thinking of the days
I won't forget a single day, believe me

Days I'll remember all my life
Days when you can't see wrong from right
You took my life
But then I knew that very soon you'd leave me
But it's all right
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me

Days

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I'm thinking of the days
I won't forget a single day, believe me

I bless the light
I bless the light that shines on you, believe me
And though you're gone
You're with me every single day, believe me
