    Word of Mouth

    Love this one, always have! The main guitar sounds like a high powered electric power tool (damn thing could probably peel paint off the walls at the right volume).

    There are cool little guitar riffs and fills all over the place (like that ringing almost harmonic-like sound that comes out of nowhere and then keeps returning) and they all sort of gloriously fall apart towards the end in a nice slightly Stonesy way (the breakdown on Too Tough or ending of You Got Me Rockin').

    This song is so loose-limbed and garagey in a way only the Kinks can pull off. I would take this over the too ham-fisted approach on too much of GTPWTW.

    Word of Mouth is a great segue out of Do It Again. Ray is just fed up and angry here, yet still wry and sarcastic. The opening track found Ray caught between tomorrow and yesterday in this new and now Chrissie Hynde-less world (for him at least) but here he's fully in the present and dealing with all the rumors and hearsay about him, why the relationship with Chrissie failed, what she or her circle may be saying, and of course both the mainstream media and rock press. He sets it up perfectly from the opening verse. You can just see Ray hung over rushing to a payphone to try one last time to patch things up with Ms. Hynde and sure enough the phone receiver is either broken or maybe missing.

    It's angry, fed-up shouty Ray and here the music (and that paint-shredding riff) back it up perfectly. This one was a favorite of mine back in my freshman year.

    I do not hear Start Me Up in the intro either.
    Start Me Up into is the riff three times seperated by spaces between each while Word of Mouth is intro more continous with much less pronounced space between the riffs. Also Start Me Up seems to have more a down or less of an upstroke on the strings then Start Me Up.

    Besides everone knows Dave was a huge Jay Ferguson fan anyway and after all Ray never did say the name of the island he was on so sha la la m'lady.

    Each side no doubt feel they have supported, placated and acquiesce towards the other without the same reciprocation so they shut up (the negotiation) shop!

    I recalled it being used powerfully for the the Sopranos ending and credits and not the strip club scene, has anyone posted this part upthread as yet?

    Living On A Thin Line
    I've just read a few things which have made me think, and finding myself going, "yes, I agree with that, I'd not previously considered that". Especially regarding Ray's Machiavellian sabotaging of Dave with the prevention of this great Dave song being a hit, followed by going with 'Rock 'n' Roll Cities' knowing it would fail, just to knock Dave down (thanks Avid Phyrrhicvictory), and this century having two of the best known Kinks songs being from the pen of the younger Davies, with 'Strangers' and this 'Living On A Thin Line' (thanks Avid ajsmith). Clearly the world prefers a Dave vocal where he sings in a natural register.

    Despite this one being in Ray's ballpark theme, it could only be from Dave, it somehow has his 'humanity' inbuilt in there. I particularly like that Ray has not done, as is usually the case (until 'Phobia' anyway), is leave Dave to it, and here he provides backing vocals to make it seem a proper collaborative effort. Is it the best track on 'Word Of Mouth'? I don't know. It stands out because it's different, because it's Dave here, not Ray singing. It's more '80s in production than possibly any other Kinks song too! (that's fine by me).

    Anyway, it's clearly very, very good, and if one was tasked to produce a '1980's best of the Kinks' single LP, this would be on it.

    Sold Me Out.

    stereo mix, Word Of Mouth mix, recorded Jun-Jul 1983 at Konk Studios, Hornsey, London

    I always knew that they'd get me somehow sooner or later,
    But with a bullet in the head, a knife in the back,
    Not a pocket calculator.
    Sorry mister, you're all wiped up,
    You're all washed up,
    Sold you out.

    Got no dreams, got no ambition,
    Can't decide, 'cause there's no decision,
    Got no claim to any position,
    Can't compete with the competition.
    You're always complaining,
    It's so depressing,
    But if you're old enough,
    Start to confess it.
    You say, you sold me out,
    To get a better deal for yourself,
    You sold me out,
    And now we want some of your precious wealth,
    Because you sold me out.
    Sold me out,
    Sold me out,
    Sold me out.

    You sold me out,
    To get a better deal for yourself.
    You sold me out,
    And now it's every man for himself.

    Work all your life, put the money in the bank,
    Sign on the dotted line.
    Try to draw it out, the joke's on you,
    Put up the empty sign.
    Sorry mister, we're all sold out.

    Sold me out,
    Sold me out,
    Sold me out,
    Sold me out.
    You, I'm talkin' to you.

    You sold me out,
    To get a better deal for yourself.
    You sold me out,
    And now we want some of your precious wealth.
    And sell you out,
    Like you sold me out.
    Are you in so deep, that you can't get out?

    Got no dreams, got no ambition,
    Can't decide, 'cause there's no decision,
    Got no claim to any position,
    Can't compete with the competition.
    Sold me out,
    Sold me out,
    Sold me out,
    Sold me out.

    Written by: Ray Davies

    I actually love this song. Although we have this straight rocker, I think Ray spices it up with a great melody and delivery.

    This song to me sounds like it could have come off one of the earlier Jam albums, though I know earlier in the thread the Damned were mentioned, and that may be valid.

    I love the opening lines.... I knew they'd get me eventually, but to my surprise it wasn't with a bullet or a knife, it was with a pocket calculator..... that is so very modern world... It kind of follows the idea of the modern world that if someone provokes you to the point of fighting these days, they are likely to sue you rather than deal with the consequences of their provocations. Or the complete reliance on manipulations of the law, to get the results someone is after.

    For the most part this song is fairly simple and fairly straight forward.... and although I don't really see the Kinks as turning punk at any stage, I think this is one of their more successful tracks in terms of having a punkish kind of feel.

    The staccato chorus gets me every time, and I can find myself singing along with the melody of this one without even thinking about it. The way the chorus builds into a full rip rocker works well too, and I love the melody usage on the sold me ooooooouuuuut parts.

    Not sure really what to particularly say here ... I just reckon this is a great song.

    Amazingly this was in our Oz primary school music book and we sung it in class.
    The only number we put more gusto and lunacy into was called Mrs Murphy's Chowder!

    "Sold Me Out" - I like this one a lot. First of all, it is revved-up Kinks so I am naturally going to enjoy it to a certain point. I like the song musically but also lyrically - not that the song is particularly deep lyrically but I just like the way the words all flow together which would also put some light on Ray's vocal which is a master class in phrasing if you ask me. Obviously the song speaks to some of Ray's mistrust of the music business but it works on a different level as well. I can hear the Eighties production on this one (not a favourite style of mine) but the punchiness of the song cuts through all of that.

    A 20 something actress from Florida.... obviously a singer and musician to some degree. She works in theater and was on a tv series called Hitstreak.

    For some reason she took the Village Green review down, which is a shame, as I thought she did a pretty good job of it.
    I haven't checked them out but she has done all the Beatles albums, Tommy, A Night At The Opera and a few others

    "Sold Me Out"

    Not one of my favourites from this album, if I'm honest. It's one of the Return To Waterloo tracks, and I feel it belongs there more than it belongs here. It does have a punk/new wave-y feel (and is possibly the last such Kinks track), but it's a bit more theatrical/pastiche-like than genuinely convincing. I was planning to mention The Jam during discussion of this album, but not for this track! Nothing wrong with being a pastiche, but it feels like it's part of the Waterloo storyline (such as there is one) and is somewhat out of context here. Five tracks into Word Of Mouth and five completely different sounding tracks!

    Re: Living On. A Thin Line. People have been moaning that England's not what it used to be (whingeing Poms indeed) forever, this one's from the 18th century.

    But then, you have to admit that things have not been what they used to be from the Big Bang onwards. People have always been saying it because it's always been the case!

    Yeah, I know, usually they regret things that actually never were.
