"Waterloo Sunset" is a song by British rock band The Kinks. It was released as a single in 1967, and featured on their album Something Else by The Kinks. Composed and produced by Kinks frontman Ray Davies, "Waterloo Sunset" is one of the band's best known and most acclaimed songs, and ranked number 42 on "Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time". It is also their first single that is available in true stereo.
The record reached number 2 on the British charts in mid 1967, behind the Tremeloes' "Silence Is Golden". It was a top 10 hit in Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe. In North America, "Waterloo Sunset" was released as a single but it failed to chart.
Cathy Dennis version: Cathy Dennis recorded a version of the song, which was released as the second single from her 1997 album "Am I the Kinda Girl?". Her version peaked at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart.
The video consisted of Dennis singing the song whilst travelling alone in a taxi driven by Ray Davies in a cameo role. The scenes visible outside the taxi windows vary between the London of the 1990s and film of various locations (eg. Piccadilly and Green Park tube station, Knightsbridge tube station) as they were in the 1960s.
