Out here in the fields
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don't need to fight
To prove I'm right
I don't need to be forgiven

Don't cry
Don't raise your eye
It's only teenage wasteland

Sally, take my hand
We'll travel south cross land
Put out the fire and don't look past my shoulder
The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let's get together before we get much older

Teenage wasteland
It's only teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland, oh yeah
Teenage wasteland
They're all wasted

Why'd I post this? Just a hint for those of you who can afford your appreciation for RP the same way as I do. I also do the same for KNON in Dallas. Totally worth it.

Ditto here.  Really enjoyed hearing this song pop up and gave me a chance to appreciate it's brilliance and power all over again.

Was listening to one of the rock channels on Sirius and it had a snippet from Pete mentioning the fact that he had been listening to a lot of Philip Glass and Terry Riley. You can definitely hear the minimalist influence with the keyboard drone.
still reminds me to "Think Bike"!

Great reply, easmann!  I 100% agree with your approach, as FM radio has to sell ads and in order to do so they have a formula on what to play when, etc.  BillG and RebeccaG DO NOT have to satisfy advertisers (only us hopefully supporting listeners) and while I understand not wanting to hear suchnsuch - you really can't satisfy EVERYONE always.  And like you said, the best way to deprogram our ears from hearing the CLASSICS and thinking "that's been overplayed" is to just stop going there.  And then when a great tune comes on here it's a welcome event. 

LONG LIVE RP!!  Wish I had more $$ to send your way BillG....soon my 17 y/o will be graduated and I'll have a bit more disposable income to dispose of here {#Hug}

Had RP blasting through the house, doing the usual Sat. afternoon chores and whatevers. Kid rushes out of house, prom dress, makeup kit, etc. in hand for the big night out just as "Baba O'Riley" kicks it into its highest gear. The poetic bittersweet moment was not lost on me. Followed quickly by Nick Lowe's "Peace, Love and Understanding" (as done by EC). Could swear George Harrison's spirit just passed directly through my house. Blessed I am, mmmm hmmmm.

Maybe a double meaning.  It could be referring to a person, or it could be referring to a sortie from a secure position.

noun, plural sallies.
1. a sortie of troops from a besieged place upon an enemy.
2. a sudden rushing forth or activity.
3. an excursion or trip, usually off the main course.

 Just looked up the setlist on setlist.fm.  Boy, was I wrong on my recollection of that show:

 

Fri., May 2, 1980—St. Paul Civic Center (RIP)

 

Baba O'Riley was NOT the opener, and THEY CLOSED WITH A SEX PISTOLS SONG (according to this website), which I SURELY also don't remember.  I seem to recall "Won't Get Fooled Again" being the last song.

Aud, can you please post your thoughts (remembrances)?

It's too bad I didn't have a smartphone then to preserve a little of what went on!{#Roflol}

 

...here's what I found:

 

Substitute

I Can't Explain

Baba O'Riley

My Wife

Sister Disco

Behind Blue Eyes

Dreaming From the Waist

Drowned

Who Are You

5:15

Pinball Wizard

Encore:

Dancing in the Street (Martha Reeves and The Vandellas cover)

Dance It Away (Pete Townshend song) 

Pretty Vacant (Sex Pistols cover)

When i first saw the cover Ibought the record just because of the cover.
It was so anti, if you know what i mean. Anti to the my parents to the society...
And later hearing the whole record iloved each song on it. A Masterpiece

Hearing "Eminence Front" used to flog trucks was indeed disappointing. But a new generation who wouldn't be caught dead listening to "Classic Rock" radio hears the song and seeks it out, which keeps it in circulation. I suppose that's why Townsend does it. Does he have shareholders for his catalog now, like Bowie does? If so the decision may even be out of his hands.
 
According to John Entwhistle's ex-wife, John, Roger and Pete were terrified of being poor and very jealous of the way the Rolling Stones made money. She stated that Entwhistle, who died while touring, only went on the road because he had serious cash flow problems and thought he was close to bankruptcy.

Except that almost every band out there nowadays sells their catalog for commercial use.  Many bands sell their songs right after they are written and released.  As much as it bothers some, The Who did nothing wrong by going with the changing times.
Yeah! {#Bananajam}
Saw a concert by The Screaming Lord Sutch at some large pub (probably prior to one of his many election runs) and a friend tells me that The Who were the supporting act.
My interests at the time ensured that I was ogling whilst getting pissed and debating who might and who might not get into a car with you. Those other Whos were lost on me.

Just for the record (lol), 'Songfacts' says -
"
The first part of the title comes from Meher Baba, who was Pete Townshend's spiritual guru. The second part comes from Terry Riley, an experimental, minimalist composer Townshend admired - many of the keyboard riffs and sound effects on Who's Next were a result of Riley's influence. According to the Who's Next liner notes, Townshend wrote it as his vision of what would happen if the spirit of Meher Baba was fed into a computer and transformed into music. The result would be Baba in the style of Terry Riley, or "Baba O'Riley."
.
The title is not mentioned in the lyrics, so the song is often referred to as "Teenage Wasteland." The "Teenage Wasteland" section was a completely different song Townshend combined with his "Baba O'Riley" idea to form the song.
.
This is the first song on Who's Next, the most successful album of The Who's career. Although this is one of the most popular Who songs, it was never released as a single in America or the UK. It was, however, the perfect song for the up-and-coming Album Oriented Rock (AOR) format that was picking up steam on FM radio. Always played in moderation, "Baba" became a Classic Rock staple and remains on many playlists.
"
'course, you can't believe everything you read on the internet . . .
should've been 'Meher O'Riley' then shouldn't it ? {#Wink}

 
And then, when Pete brought back that keyboard riff on Psychoderelict, he simply called it "Meher Baba." 3 or 4 times.
The song itself might be great. Just: I can't help but listening to this pesky background sound (keyboard). Literally drives me crazy°{#Frustrated}

"Them there teenagers are all wasted...  life is grand for the young...  sigh...  this whole album is magnificent...

think of it in the context of 1971, when the album was released... the album promotes rebellion against authority... "Meet the new boss— the same as the old boss"... oh, the optimism of youth that "we won't get fooled again..." hey— at least the young generation of Baby Boomers ended the draft, got the Civil Rights Act of 1964, created Medicare, gave women the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and created "women's liberation"... etc...

in 1971, young people were drafted in the USA to serve in an optional and unnecessary war in Vietnam... the 1960's had gradually fomented the civil unrest that was a conglomerate of reactions to many forms of institutional injustice... the USA had a president who eventually had to resign from office for being a criminal...

the cover of the album demonstrates the band's lack of respect for institutional authority... this is a brilliant historical album, and I hope the young folks today get the message— question authority rather than automatically worship it..."
words of Wisdom!   Thank you Lazarus

You and I share a lot of musical interests (according to your ratings page), so I optimistically listened to Live at Leeds.
On it I find some of the rawness that made My Generation a really good album, so I do see your point. Better live than in the studio.
But otherwise, I stand by my comment. I am not a fan of The Who, beyond the first album.
