Article of the dayOn this date in 1969 The New York Times Magazine contains literary criticism of rock lyrics. One song discussed is "Substitute".Quoting from the article:Here, for example, is "Substitute" written by Peter Townshend of The Who. The song arouses in the listener not only the cynicism that is explicit in the lyrics but also, ironically, where "the simple things" are not "all complicated," a nostalgia enforced by the simple, throbbing, hard-rock music: (lyrics of substitute)Rock lyrics tend, in other words, as one rock writer puts it, to "look at the rose through world-colored glasses"Drawing by Isadore Seltzer from the New York Times on April 13, 1969 ...

Article of the dayOn this date in 1975 Pete, in an interview in Melody Maker, talks about his current feelings about the Tommy movie. He finds it "entertaining. I don't like the first few minutes of it. I felt that was all a bit obligatory, that front part; it's almost like padding. There's a sense of relief for me when the plane crashes and she faints and all that, and suddenly we're in the holiday camp." He also has mixed feelings about the soundtrack album. "I'm not very happy with it. Everybody but me seems to like it...I rather like 'Amazing Journey', the sound of it.Image courtesy of www.thewhothismonth.comIf anyone has a copy of this issue of Melody Maker I would love to get a better copy of this article so I can transcribe it! ...
