In Banks' Eyes
Monday, June 17, 2013
Remember I talked about Banks? Well, she decided that we need to soak up more of her awesome so she figured that covering Peter Gabriel's epic "In Your Eyes" would be the operative thing to do. There have been a gabillion versions of "In Your Eyes" done before, and Banks adds to that pot of those who take Gabriel's beautiful 1986 classic and turn it on its head. She darkens the mood, yanking a lot of the plushness of the original out, and even dips it into a little morose Gospel. Chilling. Her approach is one of the reasons why I'm on watch with her as is.
I raise a boom box a la John Cusack in Say Anything to this rendition (and its free-of-charge download).
