Most people prefer the "Tommy" and "Who's Next" albums, but I've always preferred the early Who, and the album this comes from, "The Who Sell Out," has always been my favorite one, not that I'm knocking their later stuff, but the early singles and albums, the mod/ r&b; influenced material, was always the best in my book.

This track opened up that album, after some weird robotic voice counted off the days of the week. It's a psych/ pop tune penned by their friend, John "Speedy" Keen, who was later part of the shortlived band Thunderclap Newman, who had a fine, Who-like hit called "Something In The Air" a few years later. The track is one of the least Who-like Who songs, closer in style and spirit to, say, early Pink Floyd in the fierce psychedelic guitar and spacy lyrics. Pretty relentless, and very offbeat for them: a superb track from a superb record.
