the huh?

Odorono, by the Who

So, this song is 42 years old.   It's pretty simple, I mean I'm no musician but it sounds like it's only got a couple of chords in it.  So why is it I can listen to it just about every day?  And 2 generations from now will people still be replaying Nickelback songs twice a day?

At least one part that shows some of the band's genius is the parts where it's broken up.   If it was just a regular rolling rhythm it might have faded into obscurity (which is not to say this isn't a relatively obscure Who song)... but the breaks in it (triUMphant...) make it really stand out...
