Wonderboy (The Kinks song)
"Wonderboy" is a pop song, written by Ray Davies and recorded by The Kinks in 1968. "Wonderboy" was stalled at number 36 in the UK charts, becoming the band's first single not to make the UK Top Twenty since their early covers. Despite this, it became a favourite of John Lennon of The Beatles, and, according to Ray Davies in his autobiography, X-Ray, "someone had seen John Lennon in a club and he kept on asking the disc jockey to play 'Wonder Boy' [sic] over and over again." However, the band's own opinion towards the track was low, with Pete Quaife later stating that "[I] hated it ... it was horrible."
It peaked at number six in The Netherlands. "Wonderboy" was also released as a single in the US but failed to chart. It was one of several US non-LP singles tracks that made its album debut on the US-only released compilation The Kink Kronikles.

Days — The Kinks — Last.fm
Watch the video or listen to The Kinks – Days for free. Days appears on the album The Ultimate Collection. "Days" is a song by The Kinks, released as a single in 1968. It also appeared on an early version of the album The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society (released only in continental Europe and New Zealand), and now appears as a bonus track of the remastered CD. Musically, it is an uptempo ballad of sorts. The lyrics are bittersweet in typical Davies fashion. The song addresses a former lover who has either left or died. This person is thanked for the days together, and forgiven for the departure. The lyrics reflect on the lasting effect the person has had, and promise "Though you’re gone, you’re with me every single day, believe me."

Psychobabble: 21 Underrated Songs by The Kinks You Need to Hear Now!
The Kinks are an uncommon group. A plethora of bands seem to sit under that name: the pioneering heavy garage rockers who forged “You Really Got Me”, the distinctly British craftsmen who fashioned “Waterloo Sunset”, the olde tyme big band that made Muswell Hillbillies, the theatre group that staged Preservation Acts 1 and 2, the arena rockers who bludgeoned their way through Give the People What They Want, the ‘80s poppers who made a splash on MTV with “Come Dancing”.
