Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks

"Waterloo Sunset" is a song released as a single by The Kinks in 1967, and featured on their album Something Else by the Kinks.

Composed and produced by Kinks lead songwriter Ray Davies, many consider it one of his very finest works. The strikingly economical lyrics are from the point of view of a solitary man watching (or imagining?) the romantic encounters of a couple at the Waterloo Underground station, then crossing Waterloo Bridge, in London.

Legend has it that the characters "Terry and Julie" in the song are named for the film stars Terence Stamp and Julie Christie, although Davies denies this in his 1996 autobiography X-Ray and instead says the inspiration for the song came from an incident when he was hospitalized as a boy. On the BBC radio show The Davies Diaries, Davies stated that "I can't tell you who they are because they're good friends of mine".

The recording features Davies' first wife Rasa on background vocals. "When the record was finished and it was coming out", Ray Davies remembered, "I got my wife Rasa to drive me down to Waterloo Bridge to see if the atmosphere was right… I’ve never worked with a song that has been a total pleasure from beginning to end like that one".

Scroll and Sing:
Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, makes me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright
But I don't need no friends
As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station
Every Friday night
But I am so lazy, don't want to wander
I stay at home at night
But I don't feel afraid
As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Millions of people swarming like flies 'round Waterloo underground
But Terry and Julie cross over the river
Where they feel safe and sound
And the don't need no friends
As long as they gaze on Waterloo sunset
They are in paradise

Waterloo sunset's fine
