Not a fan of this one. I like the opening guitar and I like the "hold my haaaaaaand, hold my haaaaaaand, hold my hand" bridge part, but I don't like Dave's vocals in this one and I don't think the lyrics are particularly interesting. Also, as others have pointed out, the rehashed VGPS piano riff bothers me. It just seems sort of lazy. I do like the key change later in the song...I don't think The Kinks did that sort of stuff too often. Kind of cool. As others have pointed out, it's weird this was an A-side...I think it's one of the weaker "solo" songs he had recorded at the time. How did he go from this to "Mindless Child of Motherhood" in 4 months or whatever? Or "Strangers" in just over a year?
