Apes, stars, and swingers

My favorite song of the day is Apeman by the Kinks.
Compared to the sun that sits in the sky,
compared to the clouds as they roll by,
compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies,
I am an ape man
Here's an excellent live recording of it from 1970.

Please notice the most wonderful young people brought in from the street. They are most uncool, which is something I value a lot. It was before my time, but I guess it was very much part of that time. The same phenomenon can be seen to an even greater extent in this live recording of Starman (another part-time favorite of mine).

The dancers merely sort of swing their arms a bit and otherwise stand on the same spot enjoying being on the scene. Precious.
