Song of the Day: The Kinks – “Only a Dream”

Happy birthday to Kinks singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist Ray Davies, who turns 72 today. This song was a single from The Kinks’ final album, 1993’s Phobia, although it had little success after its release. Of the song, Davies once told Pulse Magazine ” It’s odd that an artist who’s supposed to have been around still gets intimidated by certain things, but I do, and I had to really get myself prepared to do that vocal. The night before I did, I went out and got rat-arsed drunk on wine. I was still shaking when I got to the studio the next morning, and I did the vocal in one take.”
