The Kinks reached their peak of success with 1983's Come Dancing, one of many hits they had during their '70s/'80s Arista years. Disc: 1. 1. Come Dancing. 3. Catch Me Now I'm Falling. This is an excellent album that has solid versions of many of the Kinks' wonderful sonts. They have a number of killer singles here, opening with "Come Dancing". The Kinks have always excelled in bringing witty little 'slices of life' to their tunes, in a way we didn't see until the earlier Squeeze records.
Kinks is the self-titled debut album by English rock band The Kinks, released in 1964. It was released with three tracks omitted as You Really Got Me in the United States. The album was re-released in 1998 in the UK on Castle Records with twelve bonus tracks. This reissue was itself reissued in 2004 on the Sanctuary label.
It winds up being a representative selection of the Kinks' time as stadium warriors. They may have released some good albums during this period – and Misfits and Low Budget are close to great – but listeners looking for the bare essentials from this period will not be disappointed with this first-rate collection.
The song became a staple of Kinks live performances, and song Ray Davies really connected with. He said that of all the songs he's written "Come Dancing" is the lyrics he's most proud of. Clive Davis, the president of Arista Records, disagreed with Davies' choice of this as the album's single. However, he allowed to be released even though he thought it "a ditty" and too slight to be the smash hit it became. The song was the group's biggest American hit since "Tired of Waiting for You" also reached in 1965
Ven a bailar conmigo" (English: "Come dance with me", Norwegian: "Kom og dans med meg") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, performed in English and Spanish by Guri Schanke. The song is a Latin-inspired number.
