"It was written about the most incredible girl. I put my heart and soul into the song knowing that I would never be able to have the girl because although we were in love at the time, I had kids, a wife who I greatly respected and had hurt, and I wanted to try to be a good guy. When I played her the song she was pleased, but I'm happy to say she has gone on to live very happily without me." Pete Townshend on the inspiration behind The Who's You Better You Bet.
