"Better Things" by The Kinks

I was having a hard time coming up with a good theme song for a new year and, all of a sudden, this one came to me and it seemed perfect. 

I first heard this song as a Dar Williams cover on WFUV and, even though intellectually it feels a little . . . what? . . . cliche? I really like it.  It kinda gets me every time.  In poking around to find this link for you, discovered a Ray Davies/Bruce Springsteen version, a Pearl Jam version and a Fountains of Wayne version so I guess I'm not the only one who's a fan.

Enjoy! And Happy New Year!!
