I posted about the wonderful Kinks song, Berkeley Mews, a mash up of rock and beer hall styles that was the b-side to Lola, a couple of years ago, partly because I loved the line quoted in my original post. It just seemed too perfect.
And it was. Turns out the word “shitty” should be “chilly,” and when you listen that way it surely is.
But shitty is better.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
