"Listening to You" as written by and Pete Townshend....
Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at you, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

    General CommentYeah, Idon't know why it's a separate section. On the album it plays through as one song, or splits from We're Not Gonna Take It into See Me, Feel Me and this on some older singles.

    General CommentThis segment/anthem has an inspirational quality which is unparalleled in rock music of that era. The entire opera is pulled together in this passage, and leaves the listener with a sense of resolution. Kudos, especially, to the immortal Keith Moon!
