Pete Townshend: "It was basically about the music drug. The fact that music does becomes like a drug and I can’t get enough of it. It’s not a testament to spending endless hours in smoky recording studios, it’s about the business of making records. When I say music I mean songwriting."

One the album’s best tracks with some of Kenney’s best drumming and a searing self-indictment by Pete buried under a song about the joys of demo-ing. Pete’s unimpressed little girls, Emma and Aminta, were 11 and 9 at the time this song was written. This track is 3’23 on the 1997 remix CD.
