Ray Davies is pretty well known for his ironic and dry social commentary, but most of the time I can get what he's saying. One song I don't really know what to do with is "Sunny Afternoon." This was a pretty big song back in the day, so I'm sure some of you have heard it. All that I really get out of it is that the narrator thinks he has it far worse than he really has it, but knowing Davies, it must have some far deeper meaning. I get that he was "cruel" to his wife, but doesn't really see it as important, but what is the real message of the song? If anyone can help me out, I'd much appreciate it. There isn't a right way to interpret art, so you're opinions don't have to be anyone's other than your own.
