Guitarist/vocalists Vicki Peterson
and Susanna Hoffs
wrote this acoustic ballad around the time the Bangles regrouped at the turn of the century after their break-up in the late 1980s. Hoffs told MusicRadar.com
: "We talked about doing a sort of Crosby, Stills & Nash arrangement for this song and some other ones. 'Through Your Eyes' was a song that we wanted to leave sparse instrumentally because the vocals had to carry it. We love putting two and three voices on every cut - it's very Bangles."
