The Kinks and their song »full moon«

In 1977 the English music group The Kinks, released their album »Sleepwalker«, with which they returned to the more rocky sounds of the 60s after a more conceptual and overtexted phase, and thus were at least able to resume their previous success.

The Kinks are considered to be one of the most important British rock bands of this time, next to The Beatles, Rolling Stones and The Who.

The album also covers the ballad »full moon«, which begins with the telling verse:

»Haven’t you noticed a kind of madness in my eyes?
It’s only me, dear, in my midnight disguise.
Pay no attention if I crawl across the room.
It’s just another full moon

Who not only wants to listen to the music, but would also like to see the band, can take a look directly on YouTube:

It fits into the program of The Kinks, this dubious subject about sleepwalking and to make use of the midnight moonlight. In the slightly melancholic presentation of the singer and founder of the group Ray Davies, who manages fine without any extravaganza, an authentic piece of moon culture emerges that is still worth listening to and worth seeing after 35 years.
