The story behind that is heartbreaking.

"Come Dancing" is a tribute to the Davies brothers' sister Rene. Living in Canada with her reportedly abusive husband, the 31-year-old Rene was visiting her parental home in Fortis Green at the time of Ray Davies' thirteenth birthday—21 June 1957—on which she surprised him with a gift of the Spanish guitar he had tried to persuade his parents to buy him. That evening, Rene, who had a weak heart as a result of a childhood bout of rheumatic fever, suffered a fatal heart attack while dancing at the Lyceum ballroom.

"[Rene] had died dancing in a ballroom in London in the arms of a stranger. ... Coming back from Canada where she'd emigrated [from the U.K.] to die, really, and again, being a source of inspiration. ... She gave me my first guitar, which was quite a great parting gift".– Ray Davies

That’s why they strike you to the bone with their music... I love them.

It'd been a while since I've heard this, nice to hear it again.
