New Songs This Week From the Who

This week's new songs include MIDI versions of four classic songs from the Who.  While the Who's rock anthems are always fun to play along with on your keyboard, they'll take on a special significance this weekend, when the band performs them for millions of viewers at this Sunday's Super Bowl half time show.

The new MIDI songs this week include some of their most recognizable hits including "My Generation", "I Can See for Miles" , "Behind Blue Eyes", and "Magic Bus".  Take a listen to a sample:

As for what to expect from the halftime show on Sunday, according to, the Who have decided on a set list that will be, "a mashup of stuff." Guitarist Pete Townshend claims the set will include, "A bit of 'Baba O'Riley,' a bit of 'Pinball Wizard,' a bit of the close of 'Tommy,' a bit of 'Who Are You,' and a bit of 'Won't Get Fooled Again.'"

If you can't get enough of the Who, there's certainly more than just his week's new songs for you to enjoy on your instrument. Click here to find more MIDI songs, PianoSoft, and digital sheet music from the Who.
