Default Sleeping Around The Corner

Are there any differences among the following three versions of "Sleeping Around The Corner"?:

1. Seeds We Sow (iTunes bonus track)
2. Lindsey Buckingham Christine McVie
3. Anthology

Thanks.

To my ears, it sounds like the BuckVie version was slowed down a bit, w the SWS version having a slightly faster tempo.. is that just me?

The vocals are different between the solo bonus track and the version on Buckingham/McVie.

I was listening to the live acoustic "Trouble" on the Solo Anthology and it struck me that there is a bit that repeats in the chorus that sounds similar in feel to the main riff in "Sleeping Around The Corner". I wonder if that was where the original idea for "Sleeping" came from.

There is an additional verse in the BuckVie/anthology version. With keys playing prominently underneath. I didn't think the vocals were re-recorded I could be mistaken though.

yup. BuckVie version has a bridge that was not in the original itunes exclusive SWS track:
I'm just a kiss away
From where you don't know
If you want me to stay
You got let me
You got to let me go
and BuckVie version is on the Anthology.

All the pronouns and tenses are aligned so I think it tells a relatively clear story, even if the story is not the kind you'd necessarily expect from Lindsey. I too am curious as to what the original inspiration was; you kind of feel it must have been a film or book. Or maybe after The Americans used Tusk in their pilot he started got hooked on that show.
