Pete Townsend - Won't Get Fooled Again

Heard this on my way to work today and I loved this version. I think its more powerful acoustically because the lyrics stand out.

Are there any songs you like better in the acoustic version?

Barbara, I love this version also. If you haven't already...seek out Pete's first? solo album called Who Came First. Its a mostly acoustic album he recorded in his studio at home. There's a great song on there called Sheraton Gibson..as well as an early version of Pure and Easy.

and on a side note thanks for linking to my post on Lung Cancer...The more people know the facts, the sooner awareness will become a need.

I like very few songs better. Some as much, but few better. Maybe Stone Temple Pilots' "Plush" qualifies.

One I like better plugged in than in the original acoustic version is REM's "Drive." The up-tempo version they did (I think on an awards show) was much more fun.

Dream Theater is getting some new stuff going. I can't wait for them to tour again.

Two come immediately to mind, both from U2:

I think "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of" from the 7 EP works really well.

Additionally, "Stay (Faraway, So Close!)" from the Live in Boston DVD is quite good.
