    @notanotheraccount Well, if one were to use the movie as interpretation, Tommy would be completely devoid of emotion to the whole thing…but you’re right. Combined with the theme of the album being that people are ignorant and cannot trust more than what they see, feel and hear, it’s quite possible the album is trying to convey that there are things we just don’t understand and try to judge without an open mind, such as even small things like what you mentioned.

    @1marcgo If you think the play’s good, you should hear the ferkin’ album! Then you should seek out video of The Who actually performing it. You ears will unscrew of their own accord and drop on the ground.

    @abdulalfarzed so…have you not heard Quadrophenia?

  17. notanotheraccount says:

    @wilhoitsux Genius line

    @beatles123 I always thought of the ha-ha-ha-ha’s as cynical laughing AT the children, at the childish illusion that parcels could fall for free from Heaven. Added a very poignant edge to the song for me.

    @WingDiamond Remember the tall stranger in Amazing Journey? I think Tommy’s probably encountering God in ways that us “normal” people never could. “Sickness will surely take the mind where minds can’t usually go.”
