Greatest Ever Songwriter
This has to be a tough call so many great songwriters out there
But I am going with Ray Davies of the Kinks…
This guy has his base on the streets and in public places, he has a near genius ability to get what he sees mixed into some of the greatest rock songs ever written…
Here is a taster, the mesmerizing Waterloo Sunset
Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, makes me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright
But I don't need no friends
As long as I gaze on waterloo sunset
I am in paradise
Every day I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunsets fine
Just to show you how normal Ray Davies is – clip – from a recent interview
Who do you call to have fun?
My local cab service because for some reason they don’t let their cab drivers use sat nav and most of them do not come from London, therefore I’m in for a very interesting journey that is often entertaining, if a little time consuming — and expensive.
Love the way he looks at life and makes it so fulfilling and enjoyable…
