The Kinks are an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1964 by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. They are regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of the 1960s. The band emerged during the height of British rhythm and blues and Merseybeat, and were briefly part of the British Invasion of the United States until their touring ban in 1965 (as a result of constant fighting between the brothers)

Ray Davies of the Kinks, well respected as one of rock's best storytellers, makes his film-making debut as director, writer and composer of RETURN TO WATERLOO. This hour-long feature is a unique approach to the synthesis of music, video and cinema. Instead of dialogue, the story is told through music and lyrics.

Come Dancing" is a 1982 song written by Ray Davies and performed by British rock group the Kinks on their 1983 album State of Confusion. The song was inspired by Davies' memories of his older sister, Rene, who died of a heart attack while dancing at a dance hall. The lyrics, sung from the perspective of an "East End barrow boy," are about the boy's sister going on dates at a local Palais dance hall.

Ray Davies, leader of the group The Kinks and one of the most well-respected songwriters in the history of British rock, made his directorial debut with this film produced for British television. A man (played by Kenneth Colley) boards a commuter train and reads his newspaper, glancing at a story in which a man who looks just like him is wanted for a brutal rape. As the miles roll by, he wonders about the fate of his missing daughter (Dominique Barnes) and the sad state of his relationship with his wife (Valerie Holliman).

Ray Davies wrote this nostalgic song about his older sisters, who loved to dance. The song describes how guys would take them out dancing, only to be frustrated at the end of the night when all they would get for their efforts (and money) was a kiss on the cheek. Davies had six older sisters (and one younger brother: his Kinks bandmate Dave). He says is was an abusive and unhappy marriage, and Rene would often return to the childhood home in Muswell Hill for visits. One of these visits took place in 1957 when Ray turned 13. For his birthday, Rene bought him his first guitar: a Spanish guitar he wanted. 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.

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. 2 people found this helpful. 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.
