Back when I was around 12 years old and Napster was still in its prime (ah, memories!), I went through a phase where I would download every song I'd ever heard of, whether I'd heard it before or not. This introduced me to music that would impact my music taste for years to come (Tori Amos, Placebo, Mary Prankster) and some music that I was better off without (... Eminem).
The Kinks' "Lola" is one song that didn't fit into either category. I remember liking it a lot when I was 13 or so, but then I went years without hearing it again. It just went from computer to computer until I found it just last week. Since then I've been listening to it on repeat, right after "Bulletproof" by La Roux and Eric Prydz's "Call On Me." The lyrics are genius, the music is amazing, and it's hard to believe that it was released in 1970; it's aged like a fine wine. How they managed to get away with this song in the '70s, I don't know, but I'm glad they did.
"Well I'm not the world's most masculine man, but I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man, so is Lola."
