I'm not content to be with you in the daytime
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night

I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yea, all day and nighttime yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
Oh, come on...

I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yea, all day and nighttime yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night time
All day and all of the night

May the Goddess never EVER favor those pining for better production on a The Kinks song. I mean, good gawd man. I wanted a pony and a million bucks from ages 5-9. Never got either. Jeez. 
 
Thankfully you didn't accidently wish for a million ponies and a buck and then DID get both!  And I'm right with you about the Kinks sound, I mean come on now....hell their NAME alone tells you what's up....Long Live RP!  (I'm at an 8 on this one) 
music can spark memories: this song sparked a partial memory from my childhood. in those impressional years a dirty song can really make an impact. so 2 live crew(luke skywalker) took this song and made it filthy. nowdays, thanks to the internet, you don't need to remember too much to research & turn that partial memory into full. here is that song

Yeah, it's called Green Day. {#Razz}

I like the lo-fi production.
 

LMAO!
All right! 

Arcade Fire!

ha!
Just curious - was playing Ray Davies after Chrissie Hynde intentional?  I think yes. 
In my book, you could play this all day... and all of the night.  {#Bananajam}

I agree that it would have been great if it was a better production but those were the days.  The Beatles had George Martin and a few years newer technology to give them a little edge by the time Abbey Road came along.  The first Beatles album I had was 'Introducing the Beatles' and the recording/production was not any better than this.

Wouldn't be as good.  Its rawness warts an all is part of makes it so great.  This was low fi at its best and I say that in a good way.
10 cuz it pretty much defined riff rock

 I agree!! This is my favorite era of rock.

2nd song I learned on the guitar, shortly after House of the Rising Son... Good times!
Quintessential!
Love it! I drove my parents crazy with my enthusiasm for this song when I first heard it over the radio when I was 4 or 5. When I was 17, driving a hot-rod Cutlass with G-60 racing slicks, smoking weed, and drinking beer, it was in my 8-track AudioVox, and it ROCKED!

Godlike song indeed, but I've always thought the recording and production engineering should have deserved to be better. The same song with a mastering at Abbey Road would have been even better.

Geez,

These guys need to get a guitar player and figure out how to play some riffs.

Easy 10. Hall of fame long past due!
Just godlike!
Sublime, fo' eva!
If anything deserves a "10" this is it - not complicated but you just have to feel happier and dance along.  "Godlike" indeed!
One of the great noise guitar solos of all time.{#Guitarist}

What he said - from the very first time I heard it, when it was released, to this playing - just love it.  One of the classic Brit rock tracks in a league of its own. {#Notworthy}{#Good-vibes}

Excellent!
This IS rock n' roll!
Wow, first time?   I give it 10.
