Top Ten Songs from The Who

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere
42 Amazing Journey

This song should be higher! Don't know why it's not Amazing Journey/Sparks because they're basically one song. Tommy and Quadrophenia are best listened to as a WHOLE ALBUM in one sitting, so I guess that's why there's not much in top ten from those two albums. - turnpikefan2017

43 I'm a Boy

great song

This is anther great power pop song on the great compilation album of 60’s hit singles “Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy”. If you are looking for a harder rock version of this song, then check out the live version on “Live at Leeds”. Both versions will have Keith Moon’s impeccable drumming who gets the Who MVP for the song “I’m a Boy”, and once again I would say the definitive version is on the album “Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy”. - Garjen

44 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
45 Run Run Run

Definitive album " A Quick One
Who MVP " John Entwistle - Garjen

46 I've Been Away V 1 Comment
47 Boris the Spider

It's really funny, my favorite song by them. I'd like to see you get it out of your head. I'm also in love with the fact that John Entwisle wrote it with Bill Wyman

Sweet bass line to play - willminns

Definitive album " Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy
Who MVP " John Entwistle - Garjen

48 We're Not Gonna Take It

Any other band, I would say this belongs in the top ten. But with the Who, they have so many great songs, I really don't know what I would take out. It's a testament to all the great music the who have made.

50 Mary Anne with the Shaky Hand V 1 Comment
51 Overture

Probably one of the best instrumental songs that ever have written

Its sad that my favorite who song didn't even make the list.

This song should be in top 15 (at the very least).

I love the trumpet in this song

52 I Don't Even Know Myself

Another great song that didn't make the cut for the album “Who’s Next” because it was originally going to be the aborted “Lifehouse” double album. Roger Daltrey’s voice and harmonica are epic on this song and it is one of those many songs that need to be re-discovered by classic rock radio stations. Roger Daltrey is the Who MVP for the song “I Don’t Even Know Myself” and the definitive version can be found on the extended, re-mastered and re-released “Who’s Next” album. - Garjen

53 Getting in Tune

51 lol, the whole album who's next should be in the top twenty! Disgraceful! I did vote baba o riely number one.

Credit must be given to Nicky Hopkins who played piano as a guest musician on this song. This is another great song from “Who’s Next” that has become one of the most played albums on classic rock radio stations of all time. John Entwistle plays some sweet bass guitar and gets the Who MVP for the song “Getting in Tune” and the definitive version is on the album “Who’s Next”. - Garjen

54 Sally Simpson

Definitive album - Tommy
Who MVP ��" Roger Daltrey - Garjen

55 How Many Friends

This song is one of many that Pete Townshend wrote for the album “Who By Numbers” that were very introspective. Yet even though he was looking introspectively, he still relied on Roger Daltrey to be his voice and to sing with the emotion that he was feeling. And Daltrey certainly does that on this song, so Roger Daltrey gets the Who MVP for this song and the definitive version can be found on the album “Who By Numbers”. - Garjen

56 Naked Eye

Easily one of the most underrated songs, solid lyrics and a rocking' riff that will keep you captivated for a long time.

Love the live version

Great opening line

57 Long Live Rock

Really awesome song. Awesome lyrics. Awesome feel. Everything about it is really cool. Pete Townsend sings most of it, and Daltrey sings the chorus.

58 Zoot Suit
59 Quadrophenia

What? 61? This song is awesome! - patrickfloyd

60 Love Ain't for Keepin'

Even though the full band is playing on this song, it feels like an acoustic song because of the prominent Pete Townshend acoustic guitar and great harmonies. This is from the incredible “Who’s Next” album which was so deep with great songs that this song perhaps didn't get the radio attention that it deserved. Roger Daltrey is the Who MVP for the song “Love Ain’t for Keepin’” and the definitive version can be found on the album “Who’s Next”. - Garjen
