Song of the Day: The Who – “Love Reign O’er Me”



On this day in 1973, The Who’s epic double-album Quadrophenia, which was released in the U.K. on October 26 and the U.S. on November 1, entered the U.K. charts at No. 2. This track is the album’s grand finale and is one that is generally regarded as one of the band’s best songs. This song bursts at the seams in glorious fashion and is a showcase for both the individual and collective the talents of this legendary rock band. It all builds up to a thunderous climax, during which Keith Moon actually wrecked his drums in the studio.
