john entwistle 1944-2002

just a few days ago, I listened to all of quadrophenia.

In fact, I was just insisting to a friend of mine at work that he *had* to listen to this album. I told him that it captured teenage longing which is, of course, the longing inside all of us....

Love Reign O'er Me

"(Pete's theme) Only love
Can make it rain
The way the beach is kissed by the sea.
Only love
Can make it rain
Like the sweat of lovers'
Laying in the fields.

Love, Reign o'er me.
Love, Reign o'er me, rain on me.

Only love
Can bring the rain
That makes you yearn to the sky.
Only love
Can bring the rain
That falls like tears from on high.

Love Reign O'er me.

On the dry and dusty road
The nights we spend apart alone
I need to get back home to cool cool rain.
The nights are hot and black as ink
I can't sleep and I lay and I think
Oh God, I need a drink of cool cool rain. "

Thank you John.
