behind blue eyes

People have been asking me to record a version of Behind Blue Eyes ever since Joss asked me to sing it on Buffy.  One problem has always been that, in the original version by the Who, Townshend's electric guitar kicks in half way through the song and it takes it up a gear- how to keep the song as an acoustic homage? 

Secondly, I wanted the song to be heard as it never had been before.  I asked a friend in LA, Tom MacDonald, to lay down some piano to a guitar arrangement I gave him - he has a wonderful feel, his choices are beautiful.  When he sent me what he'd recorded, I knew that's how I wanted the song - just voice and Tom's lilting piano.

    Not what I expected.... soooo much better. It feels as if you are making love to the song. Caressing it with your voice. And yes, you have created something entirely new. Well done~
