Lanew68, Elton John has a cover of this song b/c the rock opera "Tommy" was on Broadway in the eighties, and Elton John was in the play. So they put out a soundtrack.

If you don' know the context, this song is absolutely hilarious. I mean, great song, no matter what, but Plays by sense of smell, is just comedy gold. The Who is a great band.

"Pinball Wizard"
Report as inappropriate
The sound at the begining is Pete Townsehnd on acoustic guitar. He sure makes it sound incredible doesn't he. His strumming hand is flying fast. The overlayed guitar is electric and he makes some awesome pinball sounds with it. When they do it live Pete plays the whole song on an electric. Plus, on the 1989 tour, he did play the acoustic on Pinball Wizard as they had another guitarist on electric. Peace
