In the album's liner notes, Townshend thanked Texan keyboardist John "Rabbit" Bundrick, who became an ancillary member of the band at the time, for "help and inspiration on 'Another Tricky Da. " But the sentiment is pure Who, a defiant yet complex tune about music's enduring power amid life's problems. When Townshend first played the brutally honest, emotionally desolate songs that would comprise The Who by Numbers, Moon walked over and gave the guitarist a hug. By the sound of "How Many Friends," he could've used it. "How many friends have I really got?/

The Who's fourth British Top Ten hit, "Substitute" has a sort of sardonic anti-hero swagger. After an acoustic guitar lick that sounds like it is starting an easygoing pop song, Keith Moon runs off an explosive drum fill that kicks the song into high gear. You think we look pretty good together/You think my shoes are made of leather," snarls Roger Daltry in a delivery that is a punk rock prototype, thus inviting the Sex Pistols' cover version years later  . These were the versions that set the bar for the blazing, rowdy punk rock covers of the song by the Sex Pistols in 1979 and the Ramones in 1993 - with a guest appearance by Townshend himself on the latter.

by The Who. Album: Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy (1966). Charted: 5. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. The lyrics of Substitute are about a young man who isn't what he appears to be or what others make of him, ie he's frustrated at being misunderstood. The phrase 'plastic spoon in my mouth', means he's from a poor or common background, as opposed to someone born with a 'silver spoon in their mouth'. The line 'You think my shoes are made of leather' means he wears shoes that look smart. but they are cheap plastic, not leather ones. David from Youngstown, OhNo doubt one of the best Who songs from that era. They had an incredible knack to do songs ranging from 2:30 to 3:15 with such force, drive and power. This one also includes rather clever lyrics.

SUBSTITUTE by The Who. Difficulty: Orange. The Who are just awesome, Pete Townsend plays some of the coolest guitar parts ever and in this song he uses triad shapes to create an all time classic riff, followed by some great riffage in the rest of the song. It's a challenging one to sing and play but lots of fun too and I'm sure you'll enjoy playing it as much as I do. Check out how cool Keith Moon looks in the original video too!!

Substitute (The Righteous Brothers song). Substitute" is a song by Willie H. Wilson, recorded first by The Righteous Brothers and released as single from their album The Sons of Mrs. Righteous in 1975
