Our Love Was..


As I said in an early post, I've been focused on Sell Out.   The
latest track that I'm focusing my CDs laser on is "Our Love Was".

This song is magical.   I think Kevin, Jon and Scott were discussing this
and Keith's cymbal work.   The second / third stanza does it all for me.
Keith's timing is simply astonishing here.   Why I ever overlooked this
song, I'll never know.     This, to me is what sets The Who apart from
everyone else.  Their musicianship and harmonies in this song alone
is like a five-way intersection of R&B, Jazz, Punk, Surf, and Rock.

If I were producing a film with an intense romantic relationship with ups
and downs, I'd build it around this song.

Okay, I'll abandon Sell Out and move on (or back) to My Generation.
