Song of the day: Dave Berry- This Strange Effect

dave berry this strange effect

In 1965, the Belgians held a festival in Knokke. One of the songs performed on this festival was This Strange Effect. The song was written by Ray Davies (known from the Kinks) and hit the charts in September 1965, peaking at number one in the Netherlands and Belgium (where the festival was held). The song reached number 37 in the UK. The Kinks never really recorded the song, though they played it live a few times (mind you: Dave Berry never was member of the Kinks!). Later the song was recorded by Bill Wyman, who was the bassist of the Stones, and Hooverphonic, a (great) Belgian band. Enjoy the original:
