Song of the Day: “Waterloo Sunset” by The Kinks

Ray Davies, who turns 74 today, began his music career in 1963 and has a solo album out later this year. “Waterloo Sunset” is the final song on The Kinks’ fifth album, Something Else, released in 1967. The song takes its setting and thus its name from Waterloo Station, a central terminal for London’s rail network (pictured). Davies, the band’s primary songwriter and vocalist, wrote and produced the song himself. The song was the first single from Something Else and was followed up by the Dave Davies-penned “Death of a Clown.”
