  • Tara from Petoskey, MiAfter I heard this song live on Thirty Years of Maximum R&B, I don't really listen to the album version anymore. AMAZING live performance!!
  • Roy from Granbania, MaAs usual, this song has great bass guitar work by Entwistle, and is one of the few great songs from The Who By Numbers, along with In a Hand or a Face and Squeeze Box.
  • Jc from Tucson, AzDreaming From The Waist has to be the most underated song in The WHO cataloge of music. This was written while Towenshend was going through his mid-life crisis of women, booze and being a rock star.
