Sure, I agree that The Who is featured in too many commercials. Everything from Hummer's commercial featuring Happy Jack to countless commercials that use the song Bargain. Additionally, every season of CSI has used a song by The Who as it's theme songs! The Who has even been on The Simpsons. Am I saying that The Who has sold out? On the contrary! The Who has always been commercial! On the BBC Sessions recordings (recorded 10/10/67), the band recorded two radio jingles butchering their songs My Generation and Boris the Spider for purposes of radio promotions. So, what we see has been a continuation of past endeavors. Who can blame a musician for wanting to profit on his music? I'm sure many people disagree with me, but hey…
Anyway, you wanted to hear something different, hip, something you maybe hadn't heard before by The Who? Here is a link to a video for the song Eminence Front The lyrics are strange and include the following lines:
Come on join the party
Dress to kill
Won't you come and join
Dress to kill.
Well, I just found out that Eminence Front is actually featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. So, maybe you have heard that song… So, another rarely played song is I Don't Even Know Myself. This version is performed Live at The Isle of Wright Festival in 1970. I bought the album solely to have a copy of this song. Though the CDs rock and include a live version of TOMMY.
