“Lola” is turning 50 – New Kinks Cover

Hello everyone

Today The Kinks' hit song "Lola" is turning 50 years old, and the Davies brothers have declared it #LolaDay today.

Ray Davies and his girlfriend Karen invited us to record our own cover version if this iconic song. OF COURSE, we were on board, how could we not? We love this song, we love The Kinks, we love this album.

There is something so unorthodox, unapologetic and poetically blunt about The Kinks' music. The predecessor to punk. Untamed yet melodic, introspective, witty and observational in the most creative, captivating way. Nothing gives you a more vivid picture of parts of British culture than diving into a Kinks album. Their song "Waterloo Sunset" in our opinion is one of the most beautiful songs EVER written. We love these guys.

We hope we did this song proud and that you enjoy our take on this absolute classic. Please leave a comment underneath the video (on YouTube or on our website post) and share your thoughts with us.

Also don't forget to check out The Kinks' social media channels like Facebook and Twitter today and join the #LolaDay celebrations!

I love the genres you have chosen. I grew up with this generation of music and whilst I love the raw raunchiness of early Links, I am enjoying your refreshing new take.

The coolest thing about Video's from the Mona Lisa Twins? How well done they are. What ever the song is, you ladies do it right, outfits, background, showing the cords your playing on the guitars, etc...which is great so i can learn to play these songs, but these video's are first class and you make it fun to watch and on this video Lola, which i have been playing a lot since you released it, i am clapping right along with you both and the energy is awesome! I got such a good feeling watching you ladies play your music. Thank you so much!!

I truly love ya guys! Here, ion the US, there is a plethora of "cover bands" that can stick to arrangements and produce sounds that are equal to are BETTER than the originals. Here is one of the best, Foxes and Fossils, presenting Linda Rondstadt's version of I Can't Let Go. LAte 60's-early 70's.

The band consists of the following: Toby Remart on guitar, Tim Purcell on keys, guitrar and vocals, Sammy Purcell, vocals and Tim's Daugther, Johnny Pike on drums, Maggie Adams on vocals, and Scott King on bass and vocals. They have almost 100 videos on YouTube. Perhaps I whosuld also include their very first video, so you can see where they came from and their growth. I love them and their music as much as I love you ladies!

Peace, Love and music from the US to you"!

There are two urban legends about this song that have been floating around and no one is "fessin' up" to it. One story goes that one of the roadies for the Kinks bumped into Lola while on tour. The second story is that Ray bumped into Lola while on the road. One or the other or neither could be true. It has long been one of my favorite songs because it was the background music for something at the time. Also, the Kinks falls right behind the Beatles as my favorite English group. Mike.

Thoroughly enjoyed that. Great vocals. Tired of waiting also was one of my favourites. Reminds me when I used to fancy a young man in them days and that song always use to get played . Good memories comes with it.

One of my other old Kinks favorites is "Sunny Afternoon". I'd love to hear the girls do that one!
