I like the "Gypsy" on the Mirage video and, even more so, the acoustic one from the 2000 AHI benefit.

The one on the Mirage video is stripped down compared to the studio version, and if only for a change of pace that's okay by me. Stevie's vocal is a bit rough but she keeps in interesting by varying both the sonic and emotional tone of the delivery throughout the song. I also like Lindsey counter singing "she was just a wish" in place of "lightning strikes" on the last line.

Lindsey's guitar solo at the end of both versions (as in all versions) is fantastic.

I would agree with this....itís what saved the song. Stevieís voice was completely shot due to not taking care of her pipes.

But she sings the verses in such monotonic fashion. I remember when the Mirage video came out, and we made fun of her monotone on it, back then!

I guess I've always been a sandy ***t.

Didnít the Soundstage producer beg her to do the song, even though she would have preferred not to?

Yes she introduces the song by saying she usually reserves it for FM performances only, but the producer specifically asked her to do it for the Soundstage show.

Just "she is dancing away from me now" is monotone (which I think works). She mixes up the delivery throughout the song, to good effect.

I too like this version. Her vocals work for me on this video. Her version of it in Memphis, (same tour) are horrible in comparison.
