Listen for “These Eyes” by The Guess Who between two and three.
Randy Bachman started writing the song when he was waiting in the living room at the house of his girlfriend Denise, about to go out on a date. She was taking a long time getting ready so Bachman sat at the piano and wrote the beginning of the hit. Denise the girl he was waiting for – he married.
Burton Cummings who sings the lead said the song took 15 minutes to write once they sat down and put words to it. It got The Guess Who a record deal with RCA Records.
