Did You Know: “These Eyes” By The Guess Who
On ‘Ticket”s @ 2’ this afternoon be listening for Burton Cummings and The Guess Who with “These Eyes.”
Randy Bachman of The Guess Who started writing the song when he was waiting in the living room at the house of his date, Denise. She was taking a long time getting ready so Bachman sat at the piano and wrote the beginning of the song. Denise – the girl he was waiting for – he married. Burton claims the song took him just 15 minutes to write once he sat down with his bandmate to put it together.
Randy Bachman’s original piano chord and title of “These Arms.” Burton changed the title to “These Eyes.”
