Right now I'm listening to... (no explicit or football themed songs)

Re: Right now i'm listening to... (no football themed songs)

Today I once again listened to The Who's seminal first rock opera, Tommy. A great album to listen to as a music fan, and as a budding songwriter, it compels me to see how Pete Townshend wrote all the musical themes and incoporated them throughout the songs on the album. Each theme isn't just a different riff or piece of individual music - no, each theme goes with certain characters or emotions or phrases in the opera, and it's brilliant. You can listen to the album again and again and again and hear parts that you initally missed.

The story on the album is somewhat vague, though even then there are themes of enlightenment, religion, and adversity. You can draw your own impressions on it all and get your own rewards from it, which only adds to the album. I have my own version of the opera's story, but you'd have to draw it from me. ;)

Anyway, here's the album in it's entirety! :)

So there it is. Particular highlights for me are the Overture, Christmas, Pinball Wizard, Go To The Mirror, I'm Free and We're Not Gonna Take it. :)

Guys, this is a fun thread I've seem in other Forums (mostly brazilian ones). You post the name of the music you are listening to, place a link if possible (so we all could listen to it), and rate th

Great shout Lee and you are of course spot on. I inherited the album from one of my brothers ( 25-30 years ago

:eek:) and i still marvel at its brilliance. Strangely i enjoyed the film just as much, not only visually stunning but the strange mix of Oliver Reed, Ann Margret and the many others who featured really do the tracks justice..Christmas being a particular favourite :)

I dunno, that seemed a wee bit goofy to me compared to the album, but hey-ho, it's all down to interpretation.

"I believe in love but how can men who've never seen light be enlightened?".

Love that line.

Good song, but I wish there was a solo version with Pixie Lott. I don't think she would be up to rapping though haha. Oh well, I don't mind Tinchy :)

Great choice mate, i love that song B)
