The Who

I can't get enough of The Who these days.

The first song I ever liked by The Who was Pinball Wizard. I heard it as a kid, and it's always been one of my favorite songs.

More recently it was "The Seeker" and "Won't Get Fooled Again"

I finally bought The Who: The Ultimate Collection and it was probably one of the best purchases I've ever made in the world of music. I can't stop listening to it. I wake up with the songs in my head, and the nagging feeling simply will not go away until I blast it in my ears.

Here are some songs I'm particularly fond of:
Behind Blue Eyes
A Legal Matter
Pictures of Lily
Pure and Easy

If you take my advice and give The Who a shot, pay special attention to drummer Keith Moon. Guy will blow your brains out.

Here's my recommendation: Get on iTunes (or your favorite Russian equivalent) and buy "Won't Get Fooled Again." Crank it up loud, lock the door, scream your guts out and think about rebelling against authority. It'll change your life.

And while your at it check out The Who's appearance on The Simpsons. Classic.
