David Bowie famously said, “I never heard a song from The Kinks I didn’t like”. “Waterloo Sunset” by The Kinks is a testament to Ray Davies’ ability to craft songs that encapsulate the essence of London life, infused with a sense of poetic reflection. The song, emerging in the later 1960s, serves as a melodic contemplation of life’s simple moments, set against the backdrop of looking out a window at Waterloo Station.
