Ultimate Classic Rock gooit er, vanwege Pete’s verjaardag, nog maar eens een top 10 tegenaan. Deze keer een top 10 van beste songteksten van Pete.
“You’d have to be deaf (and perhaps, dumb and blind) to be unaware that Pete Townshend is one of the all-time great songwriters in rock – which makes narrowing down his best lyrics a tricky task. Also consider that the man behind the majority of the Who’s music is known to think big. His genius is rarely contained in a single line, but unravels over the course of story songs, multi-part epics, concept albums and full-on rock operas.
Still, Pete’s incisive insight is responsible for miles of brilliant lyrics, whether they are observations of the world at large or inward reflections on the nature of love“.
