I follow what you’re saying. As everyone know, I’m in new territory now but, yeah, You Really Got Me etc. The Kinks coulda played off of that and made a couple decades long career doing variations of the same. When Ray, or Dave, write a rocker I don’t think it should be that surprising. Also, picking up on other fads (?), movements (?), is perfectly normal. When country rock is “the thing”, The Kinks can follow that path, too. And so on. As for ‘Money Talks’, I know we could put together at least an ep’s worth, and probably an lp, of Kinks tunes that we, as a general consensus, have described as Stones/Faces/Rod Stewart/T-Rex. It’s not a where-in-the-world-did-this-come-from type of thing. Like it would be if, for instance, Bread blasted out a ballsy, raucous tune right after crooning ‘Baby, I’m a Want You.’ The Kinks have done similar songs multiple times. In the case of ‘Money Talks, this is part of the musical so I don’t look at it (and this batch of songs) in the same manner as a traditional album.
