Top Ten Songs from The Who

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Summertime Blues

Awesome! Loved Entwistle's deep, dark vocals! - MontyPython

One of the who's best, a truly rocking cover, quite underrated. - RecklessGreed

82 Sister Disco

Chronically under rated song, definitely top 5 for me alongside baba, won't get fooled again and who are you

This song has all the components of a Who song that I love: acoustic and electric guitars, Daltrey and Townshend taking turns on lead vocals, just the right amount of synth, and of course The Ox (John Entwistle on bass) and the Loon (Keith Moon on drums). You also have to appreciate that they are attacking disco in a year when it was very popular (1978). I love the solo, bluesy acoustic guitar at the end to remind all the disco lovers out there what real music is. Pete Townshend is the Who MVP for the song “Sister Disco” and the definitive version is on the album “Who Are You”. - Garjen

83 Baby Don't You Do It V 1 Comment
84 Drowned
85 Another Tricky Day


It’s amazing when a musical artist can adapt and change through multiple decades. The Who did it without compromising what they believe. They were also able to overcome the adversity of losing Keith Moon and launch into a world tour with Kenney Jones on drums in support of their album “Face Dances”. John Entwistle gets the Who MVP on this song “Another Tricky Day” and the definitive version can be found on the album “Face Dances”. - Garjen

86 Real Good Looking Boy

Wonderful ballad. Absolutely fabulous lyrics. Easily The Who's most underrated song.

Easily their most underrated song. Evokes feeling and has an excellent melody to back it up.


Definitive album " Then and Now
Who MVP " Roger Daltrey - Garjen

87 My Wife

Great underrated song

This is without a doubt the greatest song John Entwistle ever wrote. I love the melody, and its definitely Entwistles highlight on Who's Next!

88 Dreaming from the Waist

How can this song not be on this list. A rock solid performance from all of the band members and some of the best lyrics Pete has written. Their most underrated song.

89 Out in the Street

This was the lead song on The Who’s album “My Generation”. Their goal back then was to capture their live sound in the studio. Keith Moon’s drumming made that possible. Keith Moon is the Who MVP on the song “Out In The Street” and the definitive version is the album “My Generation”. - Garjen

90 Cut My Hair V 1 Comment
91 Water

Great track! Should be higher. - MontyPython

Definitive album " Who’s Next (bonus track)
Who MVP " John Entwistle - Garjen

92 Trick of the Light

John Entwistle always came up with unique song ideas like in this song about a prostitute but it’s more from the perspective of her client. John Entwistle might be the only bass player that would come up with bass riffs to kick off the song. John Entwistle is the Who MVP for the song “Trick of the Light” and the definitive version can be found on the album “Who Are You”. - Garjen

93 Too Much of Anything

You know an album is incredible when you hear the songs that didn't make the cut. That is the case with “Too Much of Anything” written by Pete Townshend for the concept album “Lifehouse” which eventually got whittled down from the double album “Lifehouse” to the single album “Who’s Next”. “Who’s Next” is regarded by many rock fans as one of the greatest albums of all time by any artist. So, even though “Too Much of Anything” didn't make it onto “Who’s Next” it is still an incredible song. The definitive version of this song can be found on the extended re-released “Who’s Next” and the Who member MVP goes to Pete Townshend. - Garjen

99 Cook's Country

It's extremely underrated and it's probably my favorite song off of "It's Hard." It's really fast-paced and the background vocals really complete the song. Enough said, definitely listen to it.
