Description
Edit for headphones. Dave Davies' 1967 solo single (the start of the video is missing, that part is filled with text). Beautiful song, "beautiful" video... I think the video is German "quality" (it has the German channel 1's "1" at the upper left corner).

The intro was played by Nicky Hopkins (who played the piano throughout), plucking the piano strings with a plectrum, the recording then using tape-echo and reverb. The 40 "la's" were sung by Ray Davies' wife and Ray himself sings harmony with his brother and another 39 "la's". So there are 158 la's in this song, which contains 138 other words. Says count Count.

DEATH OF A CLOWN
(Raymond Douglas (Ray) Davies, Dave Davies)

my makeup is dry and it cracks from my chin
I'm drowning my sorrows in whisky and gin
the lion tamer's whip doesn't crack anymore
the lions they won't fight and the tigers won't roar

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
so let's all drink to the death of a clown

won't someone help me to break up this crown
let's all drink to the death of a clown

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
let's all drink to the death of a clown

the old fortune teller lies dead on the floor
nobody needs fortunes told anymore
the trainer of insects is crouched on his knees
and frantic'lly looking for runaway fleas

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
let's all drink to the death of a clown

so won't someone help me to break up this crown
let's all drink to the death of a clown

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
let's all drink to the death of a clown

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
