Deep Cuts From 1971:’ Getting In Tune’- The Who. ‘ Getting In Tune’ is the first song on side 2 of The Who’s greatest album- Who’s Next’ which was released on August 14, 1971. The album went to #4 in the US Top 200 Album Chart and #1 in the UK. During the year I will feature every song on that album the album is that great. “Getting In Tune” was written by Pete Townshend and sung by Roger Daltrey. In the song Townshend writes about the power of music- and the conflict he was feeling at the time between his spiritual needs and his being a rock star. This was a song that Townshend originally wrote as part of a big project he had called Lifehouse- a science fiction rock opera. The project would be abandoned and some of the songs ended up on Who’s Next- some on other Who projects and Townshend solo albums.
