  • I can go anyway, way I choose
    I can live anyhow, win or lose
    I can go anywhere, for something new
    Anyway, anyhow, anywhere I choose

    I can do anything, right or wrong
    I can talk anyhow, and get along
    Don't care anyway, I never lose
    Anyway, anyhow, anywhere I choose

    Nothing gets in my way
    Not even locked doors
    Don't follow the lines
    That been laid before
    I get along anyway I dare
    Anyway, anyhow, anywhere

    I can go anyway, way I choose
    I can live anyhow, win or lose
    I can do anything, for something new
    Anyway, anyhow, anywhere I choose

    (Oooh) anyway
    (Oooh) Anyway I choose, yeah
    (Oooh) Anyway I want to go
    (Oooh) I want to go 'n do it myself
    Do it myself
    Do it myself, yeah
    Anyway, way I choose
    Anyway I choose
    Yeah, yeah
    Ain't never gonna lose the way I choose
    The way I choose
    The way I choose

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn this day in 1965 {December 9th} a video of The Who's "Anyhow, Anyway, Anywhere" was aired on the NBC-TV late-night variety program, 'Midnight Special'...
    Six months earlier on June 27th, 1965 "Anyhow, Anyway, Anywhere" peaked at #10 {for 1 week} on the United Kingdom's Single chart...
    Between 1965 and 2012 the Who had thirty-three records on the U.K. Singles chart, thirteen made the Top 10 with their two biggest hits both peaking at #2, "My Generation" for 2 weeks in 1965 and "I'm a Boy" for 1 week in 1966...
    Sadly, two of the four original members have passed away, Keith Moon {1946 - 1978} and John Entwistle {1944 - 2002}...
    May they both R.I.P.

  • Joshua from La Crosse, WiThis was my unofficial personal anthem during my late teens - even though the song is actually older than I am! It's still far and away my favorite Who song of the pre-Tommy era.

  • Colin from New Egypt, NjWell the Who were more talented than the Beatles the Beatles were just the first to rock out. I mean The Who were on of the first REAL rock bands. I mean they were like the first ones to really rock, not softly like the monkees and the beatles and those bands but hard like influencing Led Zepp and the HARD rock bands. The beatles were awesome too but the Who are my all time fav band!
  • Guy from Woodinville, WaOn the whole, I would say the Beatles had more talent the the Who--I mean, get real! But the Who do rock out more and Pete certainly produced a lot of brilliant stuff.
  • Oliver from Fort Collins, Cothe only problem is that the beatles suck compared to THE WHO
  • Jonathan from Johnstown, PaThe Beatles beat The Who to it! "I Feel Fine", relased a year before this song, uses feedback!
  • Robb from Wantagh, NyActually Rex, this song wasn't used a lot during the 70's or during their early 80's tours for that matter.
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, Scthis is a great song to rock out to!!! Crank it up guys!!!
  • Rex Jackson from Sleze Lans, MaPlayed live at every Who concert from the begining!!!
  • Eddie from Petaluma, CaThis song doesent get the credit it deserves. it was one of the first tracks to use feedback and it is awesome
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScCool song! The feedback is pretty cool.
