The Kinks

Post by Simone Choule »

Je viens de me replonger avec bonheur dans le "Village Green", album que je n'avais pas écouté depuis au moins 10 ans.
Etrangement, je n'ai jamais cherché à connaitre plus les Kinks (peut-être parce qu'à l'époque mon amour des Beatles m'aveuglait...).

Quels autres albums me conseillez-vous ?

The Kink Kontroversy
Kinda Kinks
Something Else
Soap Opera

et surtout une bonne compil' regroupant tous les singles et faces B sortis entre 65 et 70/71.

je connais que quelques chansons.

pas les albums.

j'aime beaucoup Death of a clown.

mais d'une manière générale, c'est loin d'être mon groupe préféré de cette époque bénie (idée de top ! )

Les meilleurs sont "Village Green Preservation society", "Muswell Hillbilly blues" et "Arthur". Une compil de singles face B des années 60-70 s'impose effectivement. Le live "One for the road" fait une bonne compil aussi, en proposant des tiytres intéressants des années 70 sans la production aseptisée qui gache certains de leurs albums de cette période. Ray Davis est le plus grand parolier du rock britannique.

Salut,

je reviens sur la compilation dont parlais Vic et qui s'avère complête et te permettra de couvrir quasiment toute leur carrière et de suivre leur évolution stylistique.

Moi j'adore le style british de cette époque et je te conseille de te pencher aussi sur les Them, les Small Face, et si tu trouve un excellent petit groupe The Astrologic Mystic Crystal Band !!!!

En plus de ceux cités, Arthur or the decline and fall of British Empire est très bien aussi :wink:

Et, évidemment, la chanson "Celluloid heroes", la plus belle chanson écrite sur le cinéma, que je me permet de citer in extenso tant elle a sa place sur ce forum :

"Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star
And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are
There are stars in every city
In every house and on every street
And if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Their names are written in concrete

Don't step on Greta Garbo as you walk down the Boulevard
She looks so weak and fragile that's why she tried to be so hard
But they turned her into a princess
And they sat her on a throne
But she turned her back on stardom
Because she wanted to be alone

You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

Rudolph Valentino looks very much alive
And he looks up ladies dresses as they sadly pass him by
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi
'Cause he's liable to turn and bite
But stand close by Bette Davis
Because hers was such a lonely life

If you covered him with garbage
George Sanders would still have style
And if you stamped on Mickey Rooney
He would still turn round and smile
But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn
'Cause she's not very tough
She should have been made of iron or steel
But she was only made of flesh and blood

You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star
And everybody's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are
And those who are successful
Be always on your guard
Success walks hand in hand with failure
Along Hollywood Boulevard

I wish my life was non-stop Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die

You can see all the stars as you walk along...
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

La la la la....

Oh, celluloid heroes never feel any pain
Oh, celluloid heroes never really die
I wish my life was non-stop Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die"

Elle est sur le double-album "Everybody's in showbiz" (qui tient sur un seul CD), mais aussi sur de très nombreuses compilations.

Parmi les plus grands...

Mais The Village... me semble être leur plus grande réussite, j'ai bien peur donc que tu aies débuté par le top.

Reste tout de même de grands grands albums : Arthur, Face to face, Sleepwalker, Lola versus Powerman and the moneyground, Misfits (classement selon mes préférences).
