It is hard to argue with such catchiness.

THE INTRO GUITAR RIFT SOUNDS JUST LIKE GREEN DAYS 'WARNING'

I agree that it sounds like Weezer, or vice versa.

Anyone know why these early Kinks' songs are not available on Itunes?

Love this song. Never heard it before today!

Good call by those who say Green Day rips this off. This is the first time I've ever heard this song and I thought Warning right off the bat.

reminds me of a Island in the Sun by Weezer, anybody see it?

Warning was a blatant rip-off... One of the many reasons I despise Green Day...

Haven't been on Pandora long but this is certainly not a regular rotation on the radio. This was a treat for me

Warning by Green Day its a similar riff

I've been a fan of the Kinks since 1964. Their music and lyrics were REAL and always reflected true life in the U.K. during the 60's with much comment on their economy and class system. It was a shame they were banned during their most productive era. "Picture Book " is OK, but I have a soft spot for "Days" and "Waterloo Sunset" and "Sunny Afternoon"

Ahh the kinks<3

I appreciate the problem of overplayed songs. Try removing the "thumbs up" if you have tagged it as such. Or put the song of the shelf for 30 days (use the button between the thumbs up/down).

I really think many songs on here get overplayed (like xtc alone has 100s of songs but I hear the same 10 like on any radio station rather than good rotation) but this one is not on itunes so I keep looking for it. It wont play on Kinks or Picture Book itself but plays on XTC all the time.

Thanks Pandora.
You've overplayed this song to the point where I now hate it and go past it when it plays (practically daily).
Once again you've ruined a song for me.

Great Kinks tune, but my personal favorite is Waterloo Sunset.

One of the greatest songs of all-time!
