The Kinks: Character Songs

The Kinks' songwriter/frontman Ray Davies had a novelist's eye for human flaws and fragility, which is why the band's character-driven songs are often provocative and moving. This playlist reveals Davies to be a master at inserting well-developed characters and plots into deceptively simple and irresistible three-minute pop tunes. No one has ever done it better.
