The so-called 'Waterloo sunset' being alluded to in this song appears over Waterloo Station, a train station in London, and in particular the district of Waterloo. As Ray Davies paints this incredibly romantic picture, with only the kindest of words--"People so busy, makes me feel dizzy. Taxi light shines so bright. But I don't need no friends; as long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset, I am in paradise"--it must be quite the sight. Afterall, it produced this beautiful Kinks gem, imbued with breezy guitar licks and the sweetest-sounding backing vocals ever.
