Annotationen

Diese Single wurde nur eine Nummer 10 in den UK Singles Chart, was Pete Townsend enttäuschte. I den USA erreichte sie Platz 9 und war der bisher grösste Hit der Band, die über dem Teich lange erfolglos blieb.
Diese Single ist in verschiedenen Studios entstanden: Der «rhythm/backing track» ist in den CBS Studios in London, die Stimmen und die Overdubs in den Talentmasters Studios in New York, Mastering und Abmischung schliesslich in den Gold Star Studios in Los Angeles. Die UK-Mono- und die US-Stereo-Abmischung unterscheiden sich geringfügig.
Dieser Song von The Who hat mit seiner Lautstärke Helter Skelter von den Beatles beeinflusst.
Die komplexen Vocals konnte die Band auf der Bühne nicht replizieren und so haben sie diesen Song ganz selten live gespielt.

Lyrics

{Intro} I know you've deceived me, now here's a surprise I know that you have cause, there's magic in my eyes I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles Oh yeah If you think that I don't know about the little tricks you've played And never see you when deliberately you put things in my way Well, here's a poke at you You're going to choke on it too You're going to lose that smile Because all the while I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles Oh yeah You took advantage of my trust in you when I was so far away I saw you holding lots of other guys and now you've got the nerve to say That you still want me Well, that's as may be But you got to stand trial Because all the while I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles Oh yeah {Bridge} I know you've deceived me, now here's a surprise I know that you have cause there's magic in my eyes I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles Oh yeah The Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal are mine to see on clear days You thought that I would need a crystal ball to see right through the haze Well, here's a poke at you You're going to choke on it too You're going to lose that smile Because all the while I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles And miles and miles and miles and miles I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles I can see for miles and miles
