The lyrics of the song are about lust and sex. It's a love song for street kids. They're not going to wine and dine you, even if they knew how to chat you up. Eventually, the song climbed to the top of the British charts, the band's first single to do so. Plans for Ray to sing versions of the song in French, German, Spanish, and Japanese for their respective markets were proposed by Shel Talmy, but they never materialized.
Upon release, the single received a positive review from Record Mirror , which said, "Highly promising group with strong guitar sound and a compact sort of vocal performance. Mid-tempo but bustling song should sell well. I like these records that sound as if they've gone into a recording studio and done what they wanted to on the spot.
It's a good chance of being a big hit. Pete Townshend of the Who , a band also produced by Talmy at that time, has stated that their first single, " I Can't Explain ", was influenced by the Kinks' work at the time. When we played 'You Really Got Me' people actually took notice. They realised we had something original. The Kinks continued to perform successfully for over 30 years through many musical styles, but "You Really Got Me" remained a mainstay in concert.
This version, following the minor success of the same album's live version of " Lola ", was released as a single in America, backed with the live take of Low Budget's " Attitude ". Other live renditions of "You Really Got Me" have also been released. As the band's first single, it was a popular radio hit that helped jump-start the band's career,  as it had done for the Kinks 14 years earlier. This version, which was cited by Eddie Van Halen as an "updated" version of the original, featured "histrionic" guitar playing by Eddie Van Halen and "vocal shenanigans" by David Lee Roth.
On the radio, it is often featured with " Eruption ", the instrumental that precedes it on the album, as an intro. The song was released as a single as a result of an encounter between Eddie Van Halen and members of the band Angel. As a result, the song was rush-released as a single before Angel could do so. He said, "It kind of bummed me out that Ted [Templeman] wanted our first single to be someone else's tune. I would have maybe picked "Jamie's Cryin ' ", just because it was our own.
The Kinks' Dave Davies has claimed to dislike Van Halen's rendition of the song, saying "There's the thing: good art isn't always about having the comfiest technique. I shouldn't encourage him, but I'm sure Eddie Van Halen played better when he was drunk. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Song first recorded by the Kinks in We did it differently on the record because [this original version] was really rather uncommercial.
It could have been done in waltz time and it would have been a hit. We were really surprised when 'You Really Got Me' was a hit. Why wasn't our last disc, ' You Still Want Me '? Because it wasn't any good. We didn't like it much We write for ourselves now. Anatomy of a Song. Grove Press. The Storyteller Sound recording. But it works. One of their singles from with Sy Oliver and his orchestra has made me happier than anything else I've heard all year.
Armstrong's eloquent, speaking trumpet doesn't hurt either. Night breezes seem to whisper, I love you. Birds singing in the sycamore tree. Dream a little dream of me. Say nighty night and kiss me. Just hold me tight and tell me you miss me. While I'm alone and blue as can be, dream a little dream of me. Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you.
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you. But in your dreams, whatever they be, dream a little dream of me. I was surprised to discover that its very first recording was by band leader and '50s sitcom star Ozzie Nelson. Some of the tempos are surprising, and it's also a treat to hear the most obscure verses of familiar songs. This is something else that iTunes doesn't do right: album art. Sure, it'll find it, but when you transfer all your music to a non-iPod music player, your art is gone.
It's because iTunes stores the album art in a separate database, rather than in the song file's ID3 tags, where it should be. On Mac OS, assuming you're doing your listening in iTunes, which is pretty handy at fetching album art, you can just use one of Doug's famous iTunes scripts to write said album art directly to your MP3 files. Here's how you install it:.
If there is no folder named "Scripts" there, create one and drag the files into it. AppleScripts placed in this folder will be listed in the iTunes Script menu.
You do not have to install the. For Windows users, Lifehacker's written a fantastic guide to collecting and embedding album art, which you should definitely read. The short version? Download MediaMonkey , and let it do the work for you. Granted, once you embed album art into your files, apps like iTunes and Windows Media Player might not display it, and may ask you to search for it from their databases.
This is fine: Both programs use proprietary album art storage systems, so just because they can't see your ID3 tag album art doesn't mean it's not there, or that you shouldn't have embedded it—having it around can't hurt, and it's by far the most compatible and rational method for storing album art, as far as other software, most MP3 players and long-term storage go. Anyway, that's it! Now you can set your CDs aside comfortably, knowing that you've squeezed the purest, most delicious audio files you can out of them.

Burial was released on the Hyperdub label in May William Bevan has said in interviews that he never expected anyone to hear the album: "I was buzzing, totally buzzing. But I had to hide that feeling, I didn't really have anyone to tell, apart from my brothers and my family — but that was all that mattered to me. Epic… distant lights. Burial was met with critical acclaim upon release.
In a five-star review, The Guardian ' s Dorian Lynskey wrote that listeners would not "need to know a thing about London's dubstep scene to find this cryptic debut the most mesmerising electronic album of the year".
