SONGWRITING MONTH DAY 16: Song for Someone Else

TODAY’S PROMPT: Learn a song someone else likes or that you associate with someone else.  If you get good at playing it, maybe you can play it for them some time.

TODAY’S SONG: We Won’t Get Fooled Again

There is a game I like to play where I ask people which 1960s band they like the most out of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, and the Kinks.  Apparently, says the friend who taught it to me, you can learn a lot about a person through their answer.  I choose the Who.  I haven’t listened to all of the Who’s stuff, but what I have heard moves and wows me more than any of the others.  They are the only band I can listen to jam out without getting bored.

My father also loves the Who–has loved the Who since way before me. It’s either a music preference gene or I just like the music my dad likes. One of the two. He claims they lived in Detroit for a while before they were famous.  He claims his brother saw them play in a high school around here.

Well, folks. It’s Father’s Day. Here’s my father’s favorite Who song.
