"Juke Box Music" as written by and Ray Davies....
There's a lady plays her fav'right records
On the jukebox ev'ry day.
All day long she plays the same old songs,
And she believes the things that they say.

Other ladies like to prance around
And flirt and dance the whole night through,
But she just sits and listens to here juke box records,
'Cause that's all that she wants to do.

She sings along with all the saddest songs,
And she believes the stories are real.
She let's the music dictate the way that she feels.

It's only juke box music,
Only juke box music.
It's only music,
Only juke box music,
Only juke box music.

Seems to me she's in a fantasy.
She's livin' in a world of her own.
And we all agree that she's a mystery,
Because she'd rather be all alone.

Ev'ry guy will do his best to try
To put that music out of her head.
Forget all the songs,
And just dance to the music instead.

It's only juke box music,
Only juke box music.
It's only music,
Only juke box music,
Only juke box music.

It's all because of that music
That we're slowly driftin' apart.
But it's only there to dance to,
So you shouldn't take it to heart.

Music, only juke box music.
Only music, only juke box music.

    General CommentHow can nobody comment on this song. It's one of the great late period Kink's songs. Similar in theme to "Rock and Roll Fantasy" on MISFITS. It's about a lady that really gets into music. She really disects the art and the message and the whole gestault of it.

    Everyone tells her to just let it go, that it's mindless crap. Or they simply don't understand her fascination with music. It gets so bad that it has an affect on her relationship.

    I think anybody that considers themselves a Kinks fan can relate to this. We just seem to like music a little more than the average person.
