I'm The Face - The High Numbers Quadrophenia tells the story of a young mod, and sparked the mod revival of the late 70s and early 80s. Like all the nice things in the world it came about thanks to Pete Townshend and The Who, and their 1973 rock opera of the same name. This (wonderful and amazing, of course) piece of music was turned into a movie six years later, also with the help of the band, and features some songs that can be found on the original LP, as well as some songs from the early 60s. Although filmed in 1979, this movie has a distinctive early-60s flair about it, and of course a large part of this is due to the music. Songs like Be My Baby, which is really typical for the time, play a big role in that, and then of course there's all those Who songs which tell the story just as much as the film itself. Even though a lot of songs that were on the original LP have been cut out, there a some new songs, Four Faces, Joker James and Get Out And Stay Out (my personal favourite) which help the story along. The most significant song in my opinion is The Real Me, which talks about Jimmy's struggle against himself. I think it could have been used in a better scene, but this way you'll get to see both mods and rockers.
