A change of commute yesterday morning got me thinking. If it wasn’t for The Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’ and The Beatles’ ‘Penny Lane’, I think that ’Waterloo Sunset’ might be the best 1960s pop song, and perhaps best ever. Ray Davies wrote the track at age 23, dwelling on the time he spent in Waterloo hospital as a child. The track closes The Kinks’ 1967 album ‘Something Else’. Like, Terry and Julie, I briefly watched the world go by.
