The Kinks meet the Vogues

Well, a few months ago, our local oldies station AM 600 launched into “Tired of Waiting for You” by The Kinks, and I was all set to sing along (being alone in the car at the time). Except it turned out to be “Five O’Clock World” by the Vogues. Darned similar opening guitar riffs and tempos! “Hmm,” thought I, “I bet with the tools at my disposal I could combine these two songs. One day when I find the time…”

Well, I finally found the time. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… “So Tired of Waiting for Five O’Clock”!

  1. Wow – Adam – that was great. Good job –

    I always felt that the Tony Hatch tune and Petula Clarke lyrics had a place with those songs as well (the chorus especially)

    Sing-along time now

    ‘I know a place where the music is fine
    And the lights are always low
    I know a place where we can go’

  2. Adam,
    Dave Clark Five never did “Five O’Clock World” It was “the Vogues”
