Behind Blue Eyes – The Who (Janet Devlin Cover)


No one knows what it’s like To be the bad man To be the sad man Behind blue eyes No one knows what it’s like To be hated To be fated To telling only lies But my dreams they aren’t as empty As my conscience seems to be I have hours, only lonely My love is vengeance That’s never free No one knows what it’s like To feel these feelings Like I do And I blame you No one bites back as hard On their anger None of my pain woe Can show through But my dreams they aren’t as empty As my conscience seems to be I have hours, only lonely My love is vengeance That’s never freе No one knows what it’s like To be the bad man To be the sad man Behind blue eyes

  1. I love Moya Brennan, Enya and now, I love another talented Irish woman with beautiful voice. And I love your hair <3 Very good song in very nice version, thank you 🙂

  2. Well young lady, great to see the younger generation carrying on the tunes from Old School, you are great, really great. Thank you from a die-hard WHO fan.

  3. Why is she whispering and why didn't she finish the song? The lyrics she didn't sing:

    When my fist clenches crack it open before I use it and lose my cool
    When I smile tell me some bad news before I laugh and act like a fool

    And if I swallow anything evil put your finger down my throat
    And if I shiver please give me a blanket keep me warm let me wear your coat

  4. First time I have heard you since your X factor audition and I knew it was you in the first few words. Love your voice.

  5. Well, Jenet it is an awesome song and your voice was a perfect match to the way this version should sound. Thank you for who you are and your Talent.

  6. Very nice rendition. It's inspiring, to see you have stayed true to yourself, and not become another fame caricature

  7. Why on earth you are not releasing albums and filling stadiums is beyond me. I would travel a long way to see you perform while holding my beautiful wife in my arms.

  8. Well. That was 3 minutes that sped by. What a pure voice. And thank you thank you thank you for not going all twiddly and trying to fit in a million totally superfluous notes where they are simply not needed. Instant subscriber

  9. How can you not love Janet? It’s truly an impossibility if you’re a human being. So I suppose 1K Reptilians watched this video.

  10. Your voice is astonishing!!!!! You are an earthly angel… sent to us….. please don’t let the music industry change you, continue to be that shining star that you are✨🌟 ✨🌟✨simply BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

  11. Blue eyes are disappearing from the world because of the choices of blue eyed women. At the start of the 20th century 50% of Americans had blue eyes, today only one sixth do. If people were really concerned about minorities those of us with blue eyes would be at the top of the list, we are going extinct.

  12. Your voice has the most remarkable tone I have ever heard in any singer, and thus I keep listening to it over and over again and this is one of my all time favorite songs so that takes it to another level.

  13. Why has no one married this angel? Oh what i would give to fall in love with such a wonderful, complicated and sexy siren.

  14. She forgot an important part of the song.

    "When my fist clenches, crack it open
    Before I use it and lose my cool
    When I smile, tell me some bad news
    Before I laugh and act like a fool

    And if I swallow anything evil
    Put your finger down my throat
    And if I shiver, please give me a blanket
    Keep me warm, let me wear your coat'

    It's not a good cover if you don't rock that part.

  15. i think this is janet at her very best. i have always known how talented she is but i was stunned just how good this is.

  16. I know this is an old video but…Damn Janet!!! This is amazing! YOU are amazing. Thank you for sharing this! Beautiful!

  17. Oh my janet. This song makes my eyes teary, this is the favorite song of my best friend who is already in heaven. ;((

  18. I usually don’t like covers as much as the originals, but Janet Devlin is always the exception. In fact, I have liked all of her covers more than originals.

  19. Such a great voice. So much texture and soul in her voice without effort. Precise articulation. She deserves to be world famous in my opinion.

  20. Awesome is the only to describe it…Janet has sung it the way it was…close to 50 years and still so strong…

  21. Nailed it. (But, to be honest, would have been better if you've kept up the impression of feeling the song than giggely waving at the end. At least for me, at the end I was so relaxed and sad and in the mood of the song. That did take it all away.)

  22. I discovered that beautiful song listening to limp bizkit cover (its a good one!), but that cover of yours is so beautiful too!
