Thread Name: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep?
Subject: RE: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep?
Does Daltry's angry performance save the song?
Or do these two lines

If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

make "Behind Blue Eyes" the wimpiest song ever?

If we look at lyrics alone, I would have to say it is the wimpiest, whiniest and most self pitying song anywhere, with "Alone Again, Naturally" a close second.
