Listening to Red Hill Mining Town and Trip Through Your Wires again. Thanks for letting me know. :)

Very envious of your concert, jdc!

And very envious that you have karaoke skills, Bondo. :)

I guess not!

Still, getting up in front of others and belting out a tune is a bold choice.

Spent a lot of time on The Who's Who's Next album. Someone wrote the album has the best bookends ever. It's a solid argument.

Each time I play it, I keep thinking "Baba O'Riley" should be my favorite song, but when I get to the end, I'm reminded why it's really "Won't Get Fooled Again."


What is your favorite song from this album?

Baba

The problem with Who's Next is that "My Wife" and "Behind Blue Eyes" are real stinkers to me. But now that it's on my mind, I think I'll check out the super deluxe "Lifehouse" set that came out last year.

Really, stinkers?  Maybe overplayed but nothing on the album is a stinker.  Of do the themes somehow turn you off?

Back when I knew most of these songs from the radio, I never realized that this album was from 1971.  As I was listening to a lot of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, this sounded far more modern to me.  Likely due to the keyboards in Baba and Won’t Get Fooled.

Musically they're decent, but the lyrics are not good.

I could take or leave My Wife (the song), but Behind Blue Eyes is one of my favorites by The Who.

Not loving "The Wife" but "Behind Blue Eyes" is a song I knew before I even knew The Who. I hadn't really looked at the lyrics before. "feel these feelings." :D

I feel this way about a lot of classic bands...
