He stands like a statue
Becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean
He plays by intuition
The digit counters fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball

You took advantage of my trust in you when I was so far away
I saw you holding lots of other guys and now you've got the nerve to say

Thanks Holden. As usual you've provided us with a wonderful poll.

Who's Next does shine here with 8 of the 9 songs in the top 42.

I wonder if there is a consensus view that Goin' Mobile is the weakest song on the album.

Well, I could hardly be more satisfied with the results. As for the relatively low placement of "My Generation," I feel like some musicians have an Official Best Song that listeners have moved on from a bit.

On this note, a comparison of the winners to the highest on AM
Beatles - Day in the Life for both
Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone for both
Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter vs. Satisfaction
David Bowie - Life on Mars? vs. Heroes
Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run for both
Radiohead - Paranoid Android for both
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven for both
Neil Young - After the Gold Rush vs. Heart of Gold
Who - Baba O’Riley vs. My Generation

A landslide, and Roger Daltrey sure has had some bad haircuts over the years.
