What does the video mean to you?
I had always found it a sad song, even when I didn't understand the context. I saw Quadrophenia once long ago, but I was too young and too much in altered states to grasp the meaning. Now I must get it through these windows into the innerwebz because I can't get my hands on a copy of the movie...
I've been an outsider many times in my life. I was welcomed into quite a few tribes, but I could always feel my strangeness, even as those who welcomed me may have as well but did their best to not betray it.
But back to the video. I discovered it awhile back on YouTube, and it struck me because I now have a son coming of age, and I remember the awkwardness of adolescence. I love the old world faces on the train, btw. Veddy veddy mid 20th Century Europe.
Btw, Roger Daltry has to be the greatest rock singer if for no other reason than the fact that he sang not one but two demented but excellent rock operas written by his eccentric but talented guitarist Pete Townsend.
