Correct name of song

Correct name of #18 song is See my friends, not See my friend

No, according to the Guinness Book of Hit Singles (10th Edition) the title was "See My Friend". That is confirmed on, for example ratemymusic

In 2010 Ray Davies released a cover version called "See My Friends" as part of an album of collaborations cunningly called "See My Friends". But the original Kinks single (Pye 7N 15919) was not plural.
