*fnb|1 "Long Tall Sally" did not chart in the US until late 1964, after several other Kinks singles had charted.
*fnb|2 "Ev'rybody's Gonna Be Happy" and "Who'll Be The Next In Line" were respectively the A-side and B-side of a UK/European single. This single was released several months later in North America, with the A-side and B-side reversed.
*fnb|3 "U.S. releases". "The Village Green Preservation Society", "20th Century Man", "One Of The Survivors", "Money Talks", "Preservation", "Starmaker", "I'm In Disgrace", "A Gallon Of Gas", "Catch Me Now I'm Falling", "You Really Got Me (Live)", "Summer's Gone" and "Rock 'n' Roll Cities" were US single releases. While some of these were also released as singles in other territories, none of these were released as singles in the UK.
*fnb|4 "UK releases". "You Still Want Me", "Lincoln County", "Hold My Hand", "Plastic Man", "Drivin'", "Shangri-La", "Where Have All The Good Times Gone", "Holiday Romance", "Ducks On The Wall", "You Can't Stop The Music", "No More Looking Back", "Black Messiah", "Moving Pictures", "Pressure and "Good Day" were all UK/European releases, and were not released as singles in the US.
*fnb|4A "You Still Want Me" was the intended second U.S. single, backed with You Do Something To Me. Both of these tracks, along with both sides of their first U.S. single, were issued as a bootleg EP with very little value.
*fnb|5 "European releases". "Wonder Where My Baby Is Tonight" and "Dandy" were released as singles in continental Europe only.
*fnb|6 "Mr. Pleasant" and "Starstruck" were released as singles in continental Europe and North America only.
*fnb|7 "Death Of A Clown", "Susannah's Still Alive", "Lincoln County" and "Hold My Hand" were solo singles initially credited to Dave Davies. All have subsequently been reissued as Kinks tracks on various Kinks albums.
