100 Great Songs From The British Invasion: 1963-1966: Where Have All The Good Times Gone- The Kinks. I had to get one more song from The Kinks out there before the end of this feature- I haven’t kept count but I would guess I have done more songs by The Kinks in the 100- than any other act. Where Have All The Good Times Gone- was the b-side to Till The End Of The Day in 1965- and appeared on The Kinks Kontroversy album. Ray Davies would comment on the song- ‘We’d been rehearsing ‘Where Have All the Good Times Gone’ and our tour manager at the time, who was a lot older than us, said, ‘That’s a song a 40-year-old would write. I don’t know where you get that from.’ But I was taking inspiration from older people around me. I’d been watching them in the pubs, talking about taxes and job opportunities.” Also worth noting as Ray was writing Where Have All The Good Times Gone- Swinging London was just kicking off. The song was later covered by David Bowie and Van Halen.
