Running to just 2 minutes 22 seconds, "Dandy" was written by Ray Davies, and is the third track on the band's 1966 Face To Face
album. It is said to have been written about Dave Davies, in particular about his rock star lifestyle, a claim Dave confirmed in the documentary Dave Davies: Kinkdom Come
, which was first broadcast by the BBC in July 2011.
The song ends with the line "...Dandy, you're all right".
Sadly, this sentiment was not reciprocated; in the aforementioned documentary, Dave Davies said that he loved his brother, even though he was an arsehole!
