"I'm One" is a song by The Who. It was released on the group's 1973 rock opera album Quadrophenia. This song was written and sung by Pete Townshend. It is one of the main moments of introspection spread throughout the narrative and also a sign that Jimmy may not be as Mod as he appears, given the way he asks a fellow Mod where he got his clothes. (Mods would lose face asking another Mod where he got his clothes.) It was often performed by Pete Townshend alone on stage during the first tour of the album.

The song is featured on the soundtrack for Freaks and Geeks in the episode Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers, which featured many of the Who's songs.
