48. "Another Tricky Day" ('Face Dances', 1981)

Though the song was never released as a single, the Who shot a video for "Another Tricky Day," a highlight of the otherwise lackluster Face Dances. 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 Day.'" But the sentiment is pure Who, a defiant yet complex tune about music's enduring power amid life's problems. "Rock & roll will never die," Daltrey sings. The Who folded just one year later. Since their return, this song has been appearing in their shows for years.
