There was a lot of great music released in the 60s. And in the late 60s, even more so.
Impressive, then, that The Kinks can stand out from the crowd with a psychedelic rock song from that era. There’s no shortage of them, certainly, but this one has a timeless feeling of serenity that transcends trends and decades.
It’s intensely lovely. Can you relate to finding peace in a busy place by focusing on nature? I think I can. I also think the song refers to a wider feeling of peace too – very 60s!
There’s harmony singing, dynamic drumming, and nifty guitar work, just as a 60s classic should have.
The song was released as a single in 1967, before inclusion on the album Something Else By The Kinks later that year.
