I need to vent in this entry.
The greatest song of all time is a little tune by The Who released in 1971 off of the album Who's next. It's called "Baba O'Riley." Every part of the song is amazing. Guitarist/songwriter Pete Townsend claims to have fed the birthdays, weights and other personal information of two people into a machine and it played back the synthesizer that is played throughout the song. That part might not be true, but I don't care, it sounds awesome.
Now imagine my anger when my favorite song is disrespected by being called "Teenage Wasteland." That isn't even the part that pisses me off the most. It's when I kindly tell the misinformed person that the correct song title is "Baba O'Riley," and they refuse to back down.
"Baba O'Riley is the name of the album it's on," is a popular argument I heard. At this point smoke is coming out of my ears and I'm ready to throw down. Just because Napster, or whatever music downloading program you use, tells you the song is "Teenage Wasteland," doesn't make it so! And just because a lyric is belted out a few times does not mean that is the name of the song.
Do some real research. Look on Amazon for an album titled "Baba O'Riley." You won't find it. you'll find plenty of songs under that name, but no albums. Hell, Wikipidea will even give you the correct information.
This is a most serious crime in my mind and deserves some sort of penalty. Maybe a guitar smashed over your back would suffice. The Who are kind of known for that as well.
If you didn't catch it right after 9/11, I recommend viewing the Concert for New York. The Who stole the friggin show and "Baba O'Riley," was amazing. Not only was the band spot on, but seeing the police officers and firefighters rocking and having a good time after such a tragedy was quite a sight.
Do I really have to give you a song of the day?
