Song: Blue Red and Grey
Album: By Numbers
Performer: The Who
Writer: Pete Townshend
I’m going to end out my “Summer” playlist with song by The Who. When you think of The Who, you’re probably going to remember songs like “Pinball Wizard” or “Baba O’Riley.” You’re going to think British Rock. But this song is not a rock song at all.
Before hearing this song “Behind Blue Eyes” was one of the quieter songs I had heard from The Who. I did a double take when I saw that this ukulele driven song was recorded by the same band responsible for the historic rock opera Tommy.
