The Who — “5:15”

From The Who’s legendary 1973 concept album, Quadrophenia. And hey, look at the date. It’s 5/15! Coincidence? I think not. Here’s Wiki with some info on the song within the context of the album:

This song recited Jimmy’s train journey down to Brighton, sandwiched between two city gents and notable for the rather absurd number of amphetamines he consumes in order to pass the time. He goes through a not entirely pleasant series of ups and downs as he contemplates the gaudier side of life as a teenager.

On a side note, how incredible is Phish’s version of this song from 10/31/95? That is one cover that they just absoultely nailed.
