Response to "Queen Jane Approximately"

It is brimming with meanings connected to the original Dylan song, on many different levels. The "Baez" meaning: realness; anger; irony; being spoiled; get back song; self-deception; rawness; love; superficiality; honesty; authenticity; and again, anger (albeit justified); mean-ness; repetition. Preparing the piano is, not just a result of the response to and understanding of the song, but also the fact that it was recorded with the with guitars out of tune compared with voice and piano at times, feeling raw and rockish. Some of the preparations connect to that rawness and out of tune element; the other preparations relate to anger and the song's inherent meaning.
