Friday Night Is Music Night: JD’s New Year’s Honours for Sir Ray Davies

I am somewhat ambivalent about the nation’s Honours System but if the country feels it is necessary to award honours to popular music ‘icons’ then it should pick those who are worthy of it. Ray Davies was this year knighted in the Queen’s New Year Honours list and it is well deserved, if a little overdue. For the past fifty years or so he has been a chronicler of our times and has produced some wonderful, thoughtful and whimsical songs, a sort of modern troubadour observing the oddities of modern life and translating them into song.

I think you will enjoy this selection from Sir Ray Davies, some of them well known and some of them less so.
