I'm one of those fans that feels like many of Pete's songs could have 
been great Who songs and vice versa.  For example; Rough Boys...Who and 
Love Ain't For Keeping..Pete. IMO, RGLB has lots of energy.  It starts 
out with angry energy and ends with joyous energy. The only part of the 
song I feel should have been different is the part where Roger 
sings...wise men say only fools rush in...but I can't help falling in 
love, in love with you.  I think that Pete should have sang that part.  
I love the song.  Have you tried turning the volume up and listening to 
it a few times?
