Christmas

  • Written by Pete Townshend, this song was used in The Who rock opera Tommy when Tommy's father expresses concerns about his son on Christmas morning. Tommy is deaf, dumb and blind, and doesn't appear to have much of a future, but that Christmas, he gets a game of pinball and his life changes when he becomes the "Pinball Wizard." >>
