The Kinks' Song Lola

Written by the mighty Ray Davies, Lola is a favourite and one of two songs for me to sing in the highly unlikely event of me ending up at a Karaoke night.

Lola is the tale of an innocent young man's liaison with a lady who it turns out isn't quite a lady.

The song was originally banned by the BBC, not for the transvestite content, but for use of the brand name "Coca-Cola", Ray Davies had to fly home from the USA to change the lyric to "cherry cola".

Here is the great man singing Lola at Glastunbury in 2010
