Soundtrack Saturday: Tommy


The movie version was a bit of a letdown for me. Maybe I just preferred imagining the story of Tommy through the music alone - which, you gotta admit, can't be beat. (All three videos are clips from the movie.)

Elton John, "Pinball Wizard"

Tina Turner, "Acid Queen"

Eric Clapton, "Eyesight to the Blind"

  1. I liked the film quite a bit, I even thought the soundtrack improved on some of the songs from the album, mainly the three you mentioned above.
    All great songs, but I preferred them when sung by John, Turner and Clapton.
    I still love The Who though...

    btw, I like your blog a lot, I'll try and comment more often!
