5. These Eyes – The Guess Who

The most impartial salutation to eyes comes from you guessed it, The Guess Who. This song was revived a few years ago thanks to Michael Cera’s rendition in “SuperBad,” and although it poked light at how terrible of a singer Cera is, it showcased a classic song to a younger generation.

4. Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison

Margaritas, palm trees and brown-eyed girls are the ingredients of Morrison’s tribute to hazelnut retinas.  The chorus is what makes this track unforgettable as it is one of the few tracks that every generation can agree is a blast to sing aloud.

3. Lyin’ Eyes – The Eagles

The majority of tracks celebrate the innocence and enchantment of a woman’s eyes, but not these majestic birds. As the trite expression goes, “The eyes are the window to the soul,” meaning it is the most revealing part of a human’s actions and thoughts. “You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes and your smile is a thin disguise,” must be a description assessed by far too many who have seen their significant other taking a trip to the “cheatin’ side of town.”

2. Bette Davis Eyes – Kim Carnes

Many don’t understand the idiom, “it’s like a kick to the gut,” until the moment a stunning woman walks into the room. The stomach twists into impossible knots of apprehension and suddenly one’s native tongue has never felt so foreign. According to Carnes, no one made abdominals curl like Ms. Davis. She had no mercy, as taking you home merely “wets her appetite.” A firecracker of a woman, everyone knows her, everyone wants her, but it feels like no one ever lands her.

1. I Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You – Frankie Valli

It truly is a slice of heaven. Valli somehow captures the essence of lust in one unbelievably powerful moment. It is never crass nor rude, just boldly and classically honest. The song’s chorus could cause a woman to cry and laugh at the same time, two emotions only conceived if the dame really gives a damn.
