Re: More comments on new tunes

But then I thought, "Wait a minute. Not every Who album contains
an anthem-like song. How many anthems have The Who done? What
the fuck *is* an anthem?!"
Good question, Scott. I've wondered the same thing.
Anthem (n.) 1. Song of gladness, praise, devotion, or patriotism ex: heavenly
anthem, national anthem. 2. piece of sacred choral music with words usually
taken from a biblical passage. Colliers Dictionary.
An anthem should be an upbeat song with plenty of drama; something that we
would all like to sing loudly together. Of course, WGFA is one. Baba O'Riley
(happy St. Patrick's day) is another. Hmmm. Slipkid?
