Clock Works (Acrostic)*

The illusion manifests

In places where gray matter divides

Melding logic creatively in art

Embrace where you are now

Less you blink the moments gone

You will never gain a second chance

*Note: Many know the Kinks for either YouReallyGotMe or Lola. I’ve chosen this song for its lyrics and creative video design.

Among numerous honours, they received the Ivor Novello Award for “Outstanding Service to British Music”. In 1990, the original four members of The Kinks were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as the UK Music Hall of Fame in November 2005. The Kinks are regarded as one of the most influential rock acts of the 1960s and early 1970s.[3][4] Stephen Thomas Erlewine called them “one of the most influential bands of the British Invasion”.[3] They were ranked 65th on Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list.[189]

Artists influenced by the Kinks include punk rock groups such as the Ramones,[190] The Clash,[191] Blondie,[192] and The Jam,[193] heavy metal acts including Van Halen and Britpop groups such as Oasis, Blur and Pulp.[3] Craig Nicholls, singer and guitarist of The Vines, described the Kinks as “great songwriters, so underrated”.[194] Pete Townshend, guitarist with the Kinks’ contemporaries The Who, credited Ray Davies with inventing “a new kind of poetry and a new kind of language for pop writing that influenced me from the very, very, very beginning.”[195] Jon Savage wrote that The Kinks were an influence on late 1960s American psychedelic rock groups “like The Doors, Love and Jefferson Airplane”.[68] Music writers and other musicians have acknowledged the influence of the Kinks on the development of hard rock and heavy metal.

*Note: what most people don’t know is that dementia sometimes takes root at a younger age, the signs may not show themselves until middle age. (Below is a link to more information about dementia.) I dedicate this to my best friends mother Juanita (she was like my second Mom, we even shared the same birthday). She was a brilliant woman (she was an integral part in instituting the bilingual program in the Chicago School System) and a much loved teacher by her students. As always a song.
