  • "The Song Is Over" was to be the finale to the Lifehouse movie, beginning as Bobby and the crowd vanish and continuing through the end credits.
  • The song quotes from "Pure and Easy" in its final bars, and from a 1967 song called "Party Piece for Rael" which Townshend wrote for his never-finished rock opera Rael.
  • Pete Townshend's original version can be heard on his 1999 solo album Lifehouse Chronicles. >>
