"Set Me Free" is a song by Ray Davies, released first by The Kinks in 1965. Along with "Tired of Waiting for You", it is one of band's first attempts at a softer, more introspective sound. The song's B-side, "I Need You", makes prominent use of powerchords in the style of The Kinks' early, "raunchy" sound. "Set Me Free" can be heard on the Ken Loach BBC television drama "Up the Junction" from November 1965, and marks the first appearance of a Kinks song on a film or TV soundtrack.
