Amazing Journey

"Amazing Journey" is a song by The Who from the album Tommy. It was written by Pete Townshend. The song involves Tommy, the main character from the album, going on a psychedelic "amazing journey" as his subconsciousness reveals itself to him as a tall stranger dressed in silvery robes. This makes him interpret all sensations as music. (See also: Tommy storyline.)

The song segues into "Sparks", an instrumental.

A live version of the song appears on Live at Leeds. The studio version of this song is also available as downloadable content for the Rock Band video game series.
