Teenage Wasteland ( Baba O`Riley ) – The Who

“Baba O’Riley” is a song written by Pete Townshend for the English rock band The Who.  Roger Daltrey sings most of the song, with Pete Townshend singing the middle eight:  “Don’t cry/don’t raise your eye/it’s only teenage wasteland”. The title of the song is derived from the combination of the song’s philosophical and musical influences, Meher Baba and Terry Riley.
