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

Baby, you don't know what you're saying
Because you're a victim of bright city lights
And your mind is not right
You think the world's at your feet

Cause you're starstruck, baby, starstruck
Taken in by the lights (You know that you're starstruck, baby, starstruck)
Think you'll never look back (You know that you're starstruck, baby, starstruck)
You know you're starstruck on me (You know that you're)

Baby, you're running around like you're crazy
You go to a party and dance through the night
And you'll drink 'till you're tight
And then you're out on your feet

Cause you're starstruck, baby, starstruck
Taken in by the lights (You know that you're starstruck, baby, starstruck)
Think you'll never look back (You know that you're starstruck, baby, starstruck)
You know you're starstruck on me (You know that you're)

Pa pa dapa pa pada da
Pa pa pa dapa pa pada da
Pa pa pa dapa pa pada da
Pa pa pa dapa pa pada da

Baby, watch out or else you'll be ruined
Cause once you're addicted to wine and champagne
It's gonna drive you insane
Because the world's not so tame

And you're starstruck, baby, starstruck
You're taken in by the lights (You know that you're starstruck, baby, starstruck)
Tou think you'll never look back (You know that you're starstruck, baby, starstruck)
You know you're starstruck on me (You know that you're)

Don't you know that you are
Starstruck on me
And you always
Starstruck on me
Ooh, yeah
Starstruck on me
Starstruck on me
La la la la
La la la la
