Flashback: “Squeeze Box” by The Who

Imagine being a young child and hearing this late 1975 song by The Who as I was. I can still see the rainbowed MCA record label spinning around in my head.

“Mommy, what’s a squeeze box?”

“Ummmm…go talk to your daddy about this.”

“Daddy, who sings this song?”

“The Who.”

“Yes, daddy.  Who sings the song?”

“No no no, son. It is a rock band called The Who.”

“Daddy, what’s a rock band?”

Yep, it was one of those pop songs that needs a lot of explaining.
