Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
I discovered the Who the summer before sophomore year of high school.
Pete Townshend’s introspective lyrics and pounding guitar, the frenetic drumming of Keith Moon, the impossible bass lines of John Entwistle, and the sex god appeal of Roger Daltrey’s singing and screaming were just the kick in the ass I needed to survive high school.
This song, and so many others by this band, were my teenaged anthems.
The truth is, now we all know what it’s like to be behind blue eyes, thanks to these guys.
