I've really enjoyed listening to the different versions people have posted. I especially liked Chris' version which seemed to me to find the essence of the piece without overcomplicating things (not that I didn't like the more complicated versions too). My playing kind of spiralled away from the actual notes
I wouldn't consider my version as "complicated" - it had been (and still is, when I continue playing it) quite a spontaneous approach, perhaps even similar to your "spiraling away" (resulting in an interesting alteration in fact) in this respect.
But I agree, care- and tasteful single line melody playing (as Chris and you did it) can gain its own intensity. If I would do more runs through "our" tune (or another) I'm inclined to consider that in order to contrast with playing harmonies inbetween...
