The Who released their big rock opera Tommy in 1969. Read the rest of this entry
Yesterday, I had a driving lesson and my driving instructor had a lot of different music on. I asked him about it, and he explained it was the Top 2000 (end of the year chart, he downloaded it from a few years ago) and when we were by the next house, Hurricane started. I thought: oh yes, Bob Dylan! How could I forget him and of course this masterpiece? So for today, this is
Bob Dylan- Hurricane
This is a greatest hits album by the Who, one of the best bands which existed and still exist (according to me.)
And almost everyone knows a song by them.
You claim you don’t? Well, do you watch CSI? Any version of it?
If the answer is yes, you know a small part of one of their songs. They use in all three versions of CSI a song made by the Who.
In CSI: Crime Scene Investigation they use Who Are You, in CSI: Miami they use Won’t Get Fooled Again, and in CSI: New York they use Baba O’Riley.
They did many more things. They made the rock opera Tommy, featuring a lot of stars. The Dutch listeners of the Top 2000 know the Ouverture of Tommy in the version by the Metropole Orkest, which is the tune for every hour of the hitlist.
And they made a lot of good songs, like the song of the day is.
They really made too much good songs, it almost was a torture to choose one of them. So I just randomly chose one, which happened to be Pinball Wizard (also from Tommy).
