The Who...but really love the Floyd tunes too. (a lot)

Actually, any three songs from ''Who's Next'' would of done it for me. Perfect album. Amazing.

Re: 3 on 3: Who's Next vs. Wish You Were Here

Tough call...I love both albums, but the three songs in the poll aren't in either case my favorites from the albums (I'd substitute Bargain for Baba O'Riley and Have a Cigar for Wish You Were Here)...no vote for me yet.

And I'm sure that if I had put "Have A Cigar" in "Welcome to the Machine"'s place then other people would be saying that they wished I'd switched those two.

It was alot easier for "Wish You Were Here" since there are only 4 songs on it. Though on a sidenote, I actually prefer "Have A Cigar" to "Welcome To The Machine".

I'm really tempted to say "F*** you" because this is TOO HARD!

That was more or less the reaction I was going for.

didn't matter to me I would have picked PF over The Who based on any three songs on either album.

Re: 3 on 3: Who's Next vs. Wish You Were Here

I'm not sure there is any set of three songs off of any other album that I would choose over those three Who songs. I prefer Bargain to Baba O'Riley, but Behind Blue Eyes and Won't Get Fooled Again would seal it for me over any other combination from any other album no matter what the third song was.
