Won't Get Fooled Again

The first time you hear it, it would sound familiar, then you realised it's that theme song from CSI Miami.

You decide to check who sang it, when you notice it was The Who, then you remembered they also sang that theme song for CSI Las Vegas, then just for the heck of it, you checked for that theme song for CSI New York, and what do you know, Baba O"Riley is also performed by The Who.

The first few times you listen to Won't Get Fooled Again, you might get annoyed by that constant organ tone. So you ignore it

Then one day while you are not in a very good mood and driving, this annoying song come to play, instead of changing track, you crank the volume up a few notches, then the solo organ part and your brain suddenly seems to be intune with one another, you crank it up further a few more notches, not only are they intune, your entire self comes to realised that this is not an annoying song anymore, but one heck of a song, no! its not one heck of a song, it one of a kind! It's like getting high on music, that organ solo thing, is really hynotizing.

A quick checked on Wikepedia revealed that like all 60s & 70s songs, its about a revolution.

'In the first verse, there is an uprising. In the middle, the rebels overthrow those in power, but in the end, the new regime becomes just like the old one"  

Sounds familiar ?
