Magic Bus

First recorded by The Pudding (1967).
Hit version by The Who (US #25/UK #26 1968).

From the wiki: “‘Magic Bus’ was written by Pete Townshend during the sessions in 1965 that produced My Generation. However, ‘Magic Bus’ was not recorded by The Who until 1968. At the time it was written, The Who’s management and music publisher circulated a Townshend demo recording of the song in 1966. A version was released as a single in the UK in April 1967 by an obscure band called The Pudding, in the UK on Decca and in the US on London’s Press label. It was not a hit.
