This is the worst song on Who’s Next, the Who’s fifth studio album and the one they were touring behind when I saw them live the only time, in Forest Hills at the tennis stadium on July 29, 1971, about a month before the album was released. The opening band that night was Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles. Voules voux avec moi!
I bring it up because I heard Baba O’Reilly today, and was reminded just how perfect this elpee was. The Soong is Over is the worst of it, by a long shot. I can live with that, something has to come last.
