"Go to the Mirror!"
"Tommy, Can You Hear Me?"

"Go to the Mirror!" is a song written by Pete Townshend of The Who. It appears as the fifteenth track on the group's first rock opera, Tommy (1969). "Go to the Mirror!" is included on the list of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

It is sung by a doctor who tells Tommy's parents that, after numerous tests, there is nothing medically wrong with him, and his problems are psychosomatic. However, as they are trying to reach him, Tommy's subconscious is also trying to reach out to them.

In the movie version of Tommy, the doctor is played by Jack Nicholson.

The song also contains elements of what would be the final track on the album, "See Me, Feel Me".
