On July 7, 2010, I saw Pete Byrne of Naked Eyes perform an acoustic set at BB Kings in New York.  Here’s a video of “Always Something There To Remind Me,” their famous Burt Bacharach cover – acoustic!  Enjoy!

I was really excited to see Naked Eyes perform live as they’ve had songs such as “(What) In The Name of Love,” “Promises, Promises,” and “Always Something There To Remind Me,” which sound as fresh to me today as they did 25 years ago.  Naked Eyes and Wang Chung played a double bill of 1980s greatness at BB King’s in New York on July 7, 2010 and it was!  Right as I entered the venue, Pete Byrne was walking upstairs to get better cell phone reception. I asked for a photo and as you can see above, he was glad to oblige.  He also autographed a Naked Eyes CD for me and he was very nice!  Thanks so much Pete!  Naked Eyes have a new CD coming out soon called “Picadilly,” and I am excited for its release. Videos of “Always Something There To Remind Me,” and “Promises, Promises,” – acoustic – are coming soon.  Stay tuned!

On July 7, 2010, 1980s favorites Naked Eyes played at BB King’s in New York.  The band consisting of Peter Byrne and Rob Fisher was changed forever in 1999 when Fisher died from complications from stomach surgery.  Lead singer Peter Byrne has carried on the torch and has continued recording and touring under the Naked Eyes moniker.  Typically when they play, there is a full band with drums and synths, but tonight, we got to hear something extra special:  a full acoustic set by Peter Byrne!  He played the obvious favorites “Promises, Promises” and “Always Something There To Remind Me,” but skipped my jam “(What) In the Name of Love.”  It was ok though because he also played a cover of Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” which was extremely awesome.  He also played covers of Ron Sexsmith’s “Secret Heart,” and Elvis Costello’s “Peace, Love and Understanding,” as well as a new track called “Picadilly.”  He dedicated the song “Anarchist” or “Flower Chucker” (Byrne mentioned that the title of the song changes depending on the mood) to the inspiration behind the song – the artist Banksy!  You know I was loving that.  I met Peter Byrne before the show and he was extremely nice.  A photo of that encounter as well as videos of “Always Something There To Remind Me,” and “Promises, Promises” sung acoustically, coming soon!  Stay tuned!
