SONG OF THE WEEK #4: The Kinks - "When I Turn Off The Living Room Light"

A relatively rare track from my former heroes The Kinks. Ray Davies had (has?) the knack for writing these totally charming, light-hearted, catchy tunes that sound both clumsy and exquisite. The track appeared on The Great Lost Kinks Album (1973) amidst some other would-have-been classics. Joy to sing along to, joy to play on your guitar, this song has always sounded timeless to me. 

And the lyrics? You got to hear them for yourself. I'd say they are lovely.
