The Who's Tommy: Pinball Wizard

1994, Data East

While undoubtedly the most obvious choice in existence for a music-to-pinball adaptation (and possibly the only obvious one), The Who's Tommy still made a great machine. It even included songs from the classic album.

And though Bally was the first pinball manufacturer to design a machine based on an entertainment property, their licensed pinball throne was shared by Data East. Too bad all that expensive licensing probably helped contribute to its declaring bankruptcy in 2003.
