The Kinks
Arthur (Or The Decline And Fall of the British Empire)

Day 1: Favorite Song

I have approximately 100,000 songs in my iTunes library, so picking just one is difficult.  But if I had to narrow it down to the most glorious distillation of human talent I could think of, it would have to be The Kinks’ “Shangri-La”.  No other song, in my humble yet accurate opinion, encapsulates the way it does the highs and lows of the human experience.

Ray Davies is a genius.
