The first time I heard this song was after my dad saying how he thought it reminded him of me. The main focus of the song is someone who listens to rock music as a way to escape where they are currently. As I was growing up, I would listen to my dad’s 8 tracks and cassettes wishing and hoping one day I could get out of Texas for a little while. For me, this song related to all of what I felt as I rummaged through my dad’s music to escape Houston suburbia. I feel, though, that others also can relate to the song as I did no matter their situation. The depth of this song and the story it tells just shows a bit of the range that The Kinks have in their discography. Unfortunately, I still feel that they are one of the most underrated bands.
