The Who - Who Are You

The Who Who Are You“Who Are You” è la traccia numero 9 di “Who Are You”, ottavo album del gruppo “The Who”. Uscito nel 1978, questa canzone è il primo singolo estratto dall’album. The Who è uno storico gruppo musicale rock britannico originario di Londra, considerato tra le maggiori band Rock ‘n Roll di tutti i tempi, con oltre 100 milioni di dischi venduti. La pubblicazione di “Who Are You” fu oscurata dalla morte del batterista Keith Moon, avvenuta improvvisamente nel sonno a causa di un avvelenamento da tranquillanti, poche ore dopo un party organizzato da Paul McCartney. Kenney Jones, ex The Small Faces e The Faces, si unì al gruppo in sostituzione di Moon. Oltre a Moon, la formazione principale era composta da Roger Daltrey(voce, armonica, chitarra ritmica), Pete Townshend(chitarra solista, tastiere, voce) e John Entwistle(basso, voce). Quest’ultimo è deceduto nel 2002.

Testo
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

I woke up in a Soho doorway
A policeman knew my name
He said “You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away”

I staggered back to the underground
And the breeze blew back my hair
I remember throwin’ punches around
And preachin’ from my chair

Chorus
Well, who are you?(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Tell me, who are you?(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
’Cause I really wanna know(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I took the tube back out of town
Back to the Rollin’ Pin
I felt a little like a dying clown
With a streak of Rin Tin Tin

I stretched back and I hiccupped
And looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the Tin Pan
God, there’s got to be another way

Who are you?
Ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa ooh wa ...

Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

Chorus

I know there’s a place you walked
Where love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup
I only feel right on my knees

I spit out like a sewer hole
Yet still recieve your kiss
How can I measure up to anyone now
After such a love as this?
