A new old Kinks song

“Suddenly it’s too late”: a line from “Time Song,” a previously unreleased Kinks song, no doubt written by Ray Davies. Backstory here.

As a kid, I had time for just one great group. But as I wrote in a 2016 post, “I’m now convinced that there were three great pop groups in the 1960s: the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the Kinks.” I wish that I knew what I know now when I was younger.

Ray, Dave, Mick, it’s not too late to get the band back together.

Then again, it is, really. A reunion would be a sad shadow of its original.

Thanks, Elaine.

This song, eerily, reflects where my mind has be strolling recently. I hope it isn't too late.

I visited Elaine's blog and found Marshall's "Tango in the Time Of War." Another piece suggesting the running out of time. It was an interesting sound painting, which I will return to later today.

Time...our finite riddle of infinity.

When I hit the line about sailing into sunsets, I smiled, and then I thought, Hey, wait a minute.
