Keith Moon loved The Beach Boys (his first band was a cover band called The Beachcombers). Pete Townshend wrote this song mainly because he knew Keith would like it because it fits into the theme of Beach Boy songs (fast cars and pretty girls). So Keith Moon gets the Who MVP for this song and the definitive version can be found on several albums but I would recommend their box set “30 Years of Maximum R&B”. - Garjen

It’s amazing to think that Keith Moon was mostly self-trained on drums and didn't really even start playing until his teens. He was very inventive and seemed to do something different on every song. So, Keith Moon gets the Who MVP on this song and the definitive version can be found on the album “My Generation”. - Garjen

Beautiful... no more to be said

It’s hard to pick a Who MVP for any song from “Quadrophenia” because all four members were at their performance peaks. But I have to give the MVP to Roger Daltrey who could have sung this song a cappella and it still would have that tension, anger and emotion that the entire album exuded. The definitive version is from the album “Quadrophenia”. - Garjen

118 Postcard

This song was written by John Entwistle and shows his sense of humor in his writing as he describes the different countries that The Who visit on their world tour. It’s an infectious melody and a cult favorite of hard core Who fans. The definitive version can be found on their album “Odds & Sods” and the Who MVP for this song is John Entwistle. - Garjen
