The Lozarithm Lens

By lozarithm


There have been sad gaps in my life when I haven't had a cat, but my very first was a ginger tom called Dandy. He was my birthday present when he was a tiny kitten and I was about 4 or 5 and he lived until I was in my late teens. He was a gentle and slightly aloof giant with whom I had a close rapport. The Spotlight Kid can be seen in the background attempting to construct a model aeroplane.


Lozarhythm Of The Day:
The Kinks - Dandy (1966)
Dandy is a 1966 song from The Kinks, appearing on their Face to Face album. It was released as a single in Continental Europe only, where it charted, reaching #1 in Germany, #2 in Belgium and #3 in the Netherlands. In some countries, the single was flipped with Party Line (also from Face to Face) as the A-side.

In the song, songwriter Ray Davies skewered the would-be master lover of the title. There is speculation that Davies wrote the song in reference to the wild lifestyle of his younger brother, Kinks guitarist Dave Davies.

Herman's Hermits also released an awful version in which all of Ray Davies' masterful satire was surgically removed.
