Looks can be deceiving – this is a phrase everyone knows well. Sometimes, things look bad, but they aren’t. However, looks can also be incredibly accurate – this too is a phrase everyone knows well. Sometimes, things look good, and they are. The same goes for songs – sometimes a song sounds good, and sometimes a sound doesn’t, but the lyrics make it better. Songs about eyes help exemplify this point – some songs sound good, and the lyrics would be even better with a different color of eyes, while others sound bad, but the lyrics make them great songs for staring into a lover’s eyes. Here are ten fantastic songs about blue eyes:
10. Eric Clapton – Blue Eyes Blue
Blue Eyes Blue was released in 1999 on Eric Clapton’s album Runaway Bride. It is one of the slower songs on the album, but it is also one of the best. Many may not like this song because Clapton’s voice seems slightly dowie here, but hopefully, you will be able to see the blue eyes shining through those tears. It’s a very heartfelt song, as can be seen from his deep voice as well as the piano accompaniment.
9. Velvet Underground – Pale Blue Eyes
Pale Blue Eyes was initially released on the Velvet Underground’s 1969 album The Velvet Underground. The song has a very folky sound, but it’s a classic that you will never forget. It has a very different sound from some other songs on this list, but it is still a great song with a slightly dark undertone. Its lyrics are very heartfelt, which makes it all the more worth listening to.
8. Crosby, Stills & Nash – Suite: Judy Blue Eyes
Suite: Judy Blue Eyes was released initially on Crosby, Stills & Nash’s 1969 album Crosby, Stills & Nash. It’s a much faster song than the Velvet Underground’s Pale Blue Eyes, but it has an equally classic sound. Interestingly enough, it is not about blue eyes – instead, it is about Stephen Stills’s breakup with Judy Collins. Even though it is not about blue eyes, we still think it’s a great song.
7. George Strait – Baby Blue
Baby Blue was initially released on George Strait’s 1988 album If You Ain’t Lovin. This is a classic country song that anyone who watches the Grand Ole Opry will recognize. It’s a touch slower than some of Strait’s other songs, but it has a great beat and lyrics that quickly get lost in. It’s another one of those songs that might not have been about blue eyes, but it’s excellent for staring into them anyway.
6. MIKA – Blue Eyes
Mika’s Blue Eyes song was initially released on Mika’s 2009 album The Boy Who Knew Too Much. It is a much slower song than many on this list, but it is very catchy, and there is a soft beat that will help you get lost in the lyrics. It’s a very emotional song, but it is also empowering. Mika uses this song to encourage people to be proud of themselves. He says that you shouldn’t let it get to you no matter what other people say. You are beautiful just the way you are, blue eyes and all.
5. Dave Matthews – Grey Blue Eyes
Grey Blue Eyes was initially released on Dave Matthews’s 2003 album Some Devil. It is a very calm song with an almost sad undertone. That said, it is still a great song, and we recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t already heard it. It’s not one of his more popular songs, but it still deserves to be heard.
4. Johnny Cash – I Still Miss Someone
I Still Miss Someone was initially released on Johnny Cash’s 1958 album The Fabulous Johnny Cash. This is a song about love, which is rare in country music. It’s quite a short song, but it has great lyrics, and Johnny Cash has a fantastic voice that will suck you in. It’s a perfect song to listen to when you’re missing someone, and we highly recommend giving it a spin.
3. Bruce Springsteen – Hey Blue Eyes
Hey, Blue Eyes was initially released on Bruce Springsteen’s 2014 album American Beauty. It is one of his most recent songs, and it has a more modern feel to it. At the same time, it still has its classic style and excellent lyrics. This is a song about heartbreak, and it will give you all sorts of feelings. Keep a box of tissues handy, and be prepared to tap your foot while listening.
2. Yo Yo Honey Singh – Blue Eyes
Blue Eyes Full Video Song Yo Yo Honey Singh was initially released on Yo Yo Honey Singh’s 2014 album Blue Eyes. It’s a classic hip-hop song with a catchy beat. The lyrics are ridiculous, but that is all part of the charm. It might not be about blue eyes in particular, but it is one of the best songs to dedicate to them.
1. A Rocket To The Moon – Baby Blue Eyes
Baby Blue Eyes was released initially on A Rocket to the Moon’s 2009 album On Your Side. If you like songs with a catchy beat and fun lyrics, this is one to check out. It’s not a very well-known song either, so it’s perfect if you want to be the only person listening to a song. As a bonus, there is a music video with many blue eyes. The band is so named because they wanted to be like rockets taking off and going to new places. We think blue eyes can take you anywhere, so give this song a spin and go somewhere new.
We hope that this list has given you something new to listen to. These songs will take you on a journey, whether it is noticing the beautiful blue eyes of your crush or feeling the pain of unrequited love. Whatever the case, we recommend giving all ten of these songs a listen and letting them take you to new places.
