About[edit]

This track, according to Pete Townshend, "wasn't as good as this before I did it with Keith. It's not my favourite one on the LP. It reminds me a bit of Sandie Shaw." [2]

In November 1966, the song was, without the permission of The Who, released in Britain as the fourth single from the My Generation album. It hit #17 in Sweden, but didn't chart in the United Kingdom. It was backed with "The Good's Gone".
