#AtoZChallenge: E



This post is part of a month-long blogging challenge. The challenge is to start the month with the letter A and make our way to letter Z at the end of the month.

A quick review of what we’re doing here:

I’ll post 3 to 5 songs with a word that represents the letter of the day. In the comments, you’ll share songs that also use the selected word in either the title or lyrics.  Pretty easy, and loads of fun!




Today’s word is “Eyes”

From Dictionary.com:


  1. Can’t Take My Eyes Off You - Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
  2. Bette Davis Eyes - Kim Carnes
  3. Eyes Without A Face - Billy Idol
  4. Smoke Gets In Your Eyes - Platters
  5. Eye In The Sky - Alan Parsons Project




And those are my Eyes for the day.  Let’s see what Eye or Eyes songs you come up with. Your songs can be from any musical genre.  Share in the comments.

Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by X-Mas Dolly, and co-hosted by JAmerican Spice, Stacy Uncorked, Curious as a Cathy. , and Ramblin with AM. Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.  If you have a MUSIC* post, feel free to join in the fun! *sorry non-music posts are not permitted in this blog hop.

    1. Thanks, Debbie! It's a favorite of mine as well. I think I used it last year, and that's why I didn't include it this time around. So I'm glad you are sharing it in the comments :)

  2. Mary,

    Using 'Eyes' for your 4M and A2Z mewsic theme is great. There are some great song titles out there like 'Eye of the Tiger' ~Survivor, 'Doctor My Eyes' ~Jackson Browne, & 'Sexy Eyes' ~Dr. Hook to name just a few. Thanks for sharing the dance floor with us today. Be safe and well and have a boogietastic week, my dear!

    1. Hi Patrick! I had to look that one up as I had completely forgotten about it. Great addition to the list :) Am doing 'okay'. Have been worse, but also have been better.

  5. April in her Eyes by Chris DeBurgh is a beautiful one. Angel Eyes by ABBA. When Irish Eyes Are Smiling is a nice song. I love I’ve Got My Eyes on You.

  6. Eyes are "yeux" in French, does it count in the game if I give a French song? It's "Je veux tes yeux" by Angèle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0KrWq0i1QI

  7. "Green Eyes" - it's a standard, but Helen O'Connell and Bob Eberly did it with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra
    "Green Eyed Lady" by Sugarloaf
    "These Eyes" by The Guess Who
    "Blue eyes" by Elton John
    "Behind Blue Eyes" by The Who

    There are all kinds of songs with "eye" in them...

  8. What a neat idea to have people join in with you. Sometimes it's a little hard to put a comment & getting people to join you is fabulous idea. Thanks. I love your choices. I've always been a Four Seasons & Frankie Vali fan. My three choices will be Eye of the Tiger, Beautiful Brown Eyes by Rosemary Clooney, and last, but not least My eyes adored you frankie valli!!! That was fun. Thanks & stay healthy my friend and stay home! Hugs

  9. Oh, Eye in the Sky - I love that song. My husband was a huge APP fan when we met and got me into the music too. I really wish Alan Parsons would tour the UK at some point.
    Now, songs with eyes - gotta have "Eye of the Tiger" - dun, dun dun dun...

    P.S. Apologies for the lateness of the comment - my new podcast drops today and I have been running around trying to make sure everything is ready.😂

  10. It was given already but the Who's Behind Blue Eyes. Bette Davis Eyes is one of my all time favorite songs. Know something weird? The first minute or so of the Frankie Valli song, to me, doesn't sound like him. Maybe my ears aren't operating right? Later in the song it was him. Wonder what that was all about.
