The early morning "MOOD SETTING" music during this cold, dark, post-Winter solstitial morning: THE EXORCIST... these eldritch 20th Century selections are fantastic to wake up to... surreal... imaginative... creative (see my full review of the soundtrack)... not sure if there's a tie-in... no, not really... simply a non-sequitur... UNLESS!!! MAYBE!!!!???? PURE & EASY has been called (by Pete Townshend himself) the central theme of his abandoned LIFEHOUSE project... you WHO FANS recall... LIFEHOUSE was to be the follow-up to TOMMY... a multi-media offering with a film, and a song-cycle (with THE WHO providing, perhaps, their best material during their triumvirate of musical genius spanning TOMMY, WHO'S NEXT, & QUADROPHENIA)... accordingly it proved to be too ambitious for the time (TOWNSHEND later revived it and performed it as a solo artist)...

Anyway, PURE & EASY espouses the notion that all of us (YES, ALL OF US) are "notes" in a much more grand symphonic scheme of life... "There once was a note pure and easy, playing so free like a breath rippling by"... the note is eternal... I hear it, it sees me... forever we blend, and forever we die"... "I listened and I heard music in a word, and words when you played your guitar"... are we all drawn by music?... is our attraction for the ultimate good?... does the ancient Greek philosophy still hold true, in that music should be melodic, "tonal", sound pleasant, and uplift the soul and spirit in order to make us all feel glad to be alive? I believe that... I also believe that one of the plot lines of LIFEHOUSE had people making a pilgrimage to witness a live musical performance (in fact, this may have been a central plot line... sorry, I've only read critical review, as well as interviews with TOWNSHEND on the subject)...
