This song doesnt even come close to sounding like the taxman. Sure in fact you might as well say it sounds like Stealy Dan

Such a great song! But . . . Does anyone else think about the Beatles' "Taxman" while hearing this song?

I once saw an animated video for this song on YouTube. It was hillarious. I totally recommend it.

Couldn't you just hear My Morning Jacket doing this one? The more I hear the Kinks their influence on todays groups becomes even more pronounced and relevant.

Don't read this because it really works. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest possible Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. But if you don't post this you die in two days. Now you have started reading so don't stop. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters this is scary because it works! Don't read this because it really work
