The Who: Substitute
Even when I was most interested in the charts in the 1970s, I sensed that the music of the 1960s had been better.
When this was re-released in 1976 I went out and bought it with my Saturday job money.When you were 16 you had to really like a single to buy it. Which is why that neglected box of old singles may be a better clue to your real musical tastes than your CD collection or electric iPod thing.
As a bonus, the 1976 single had "Pictures of Lily" and "I'm a Boy" on the flip side. It made number seven in the charts.
