Paging Ray Davies

March 21st, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

I didn’t see it live last night, but apparently Sanjaya made a little girl in the American Idol audience weep:

I’m sick-as-balls of writing about this guy. I would let the video stand alone, but I have a bone to pick concerning Sanjaya’s song choice.

In front of 30 million gajillion viewers Tuesday, Sanjaya butchered “You Really Got Me,” a really great rock song by one of my all-time favorite bands, The Kinks. Ray Davies, who wrote it, is THE SHIT.


I would put him up there with Bowie, Lennon, and Dylan any day of the century. I can’t even begin to name all of my favorite Kinks songs–Stop Your Sobbing, Waterloo Sunset, David Watts, The Village Green Preservation Society, This Time Tomorrow…

Another fun fact: Ray was once married to Chrissie Hynde, also The Shit. The marriage did not end well, however, and a little birdie once told me that Ray has a problem with hitting women. I have a feeling he does this because his, ahem, ego is shriveled from never getting his due like the Beatles and the Stones, to which I say:

WHATEVER. GET OVER IT. YOU’RE STILL A GENIUS. HITTING WOMEN IS WEAK.

And for a chap with such alleged violent tendencies, how are you, Ray Davies, suddenly a pacifist when 1) Van Halen phones in covers “You Really Got Me” in 1978 and 2) their weak-ass version becomes so big that when I play it on Guitar Hero 2, the screen reads, “You Really Got Me, AS MADE FAMOUS BY VAN HALEN,” a statement that I find utterly fatuous, and 3) a smiley half-wit whose one talent is HULA-DANCING cute-sies his way through the same once-great song on a cheeseball talent show, rendering girls all over the world–myself included–speechless with tears?


Stop my sobbing, you say? I won’t. I can’t.
