I go to the bar to order a round. The CD starts again - All Day And All Of The Night. The young barman asks his co-worker if this is The Kinks. She doesn't know. He looks at me. "Yes," I say, "it is The Kinks".
"It's not You Really Got Me, is it?" he says.
"I like that one. It sounds similar. I like The Kinks."
"Me too," I say. I've always liked the Beatles and Stones but only really liked The Kinks for the past few years."
"I'm a DJ, you know. 60s, 70s and 80s. I DJ'd here on Christmas Eve. Were you here?"
"I love the 60s stuff. Specially the Beach Boys. I love the Beach Boys."
"Pet Sounds. It's a Beach Boys album. God Only Knows?"
"God Only Knows. It's a song on Pet Sounds."
"I like I Get Around."
"Yeah, their earlier stuff is good, too."
My music history lesson over, I pay for the drinks. I go back to our table and continue to talk Jupitus.
Happy Birthday, Mr. DeVice!
