PMJ superstar Sara Niemietz is back with her latest Postmodern Jukebox performance: a haunting, bluesy remake of Cheap Trick’s 1978 hit, “I Want You To Want Me.” This one also features famed film composer Snuffy Walden on guitar. Watch:
Sara is currently stunning European audiences on #PMJtour with her flawless voice and natural storytelling ability, both of which are on full display here. By changing the genre and the intent in the vocals, this classic song takes on a brand new, surprisingly poignant quality.
Even if you haven’t heard W.G. “Snuffy” Walden’s name before, you’ve certainly heard his work, starting with his work as a television composer on Thirtysomething and The Wonder Years, and continuing to this day with his Emmy Award-winning title theme of The West Wing and Friday Night Lights. He’s a true legend as a composer, and an incredible guitarist, as well.
