♫ Blue Eyes ♫

I’m in an Elton sort of mood tonight, and this is one that I haven’t yet played.  Why am I in an Elton sort of mood?  Because I just finished writing a rant-y sort of post that has left me agitated, because I’ve lost the little rubber tip to my cigarette rolling machine, because the a/c still isn’t fixed, because I washed windows today and they don’t look much better than they did before I washed them, and most of all, I think, because I’m tired and frustrated.  A few people can relieve all those symptoms, and Elton is one such.

Released in 1982, both as a single and on the album Jump Up!, it hit #8 in the UK and #10 in the U.S. and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1983.  The music and lyrics were written by Elton and Gary Osborne, but there really isn’t much trivia that I could find about the song.  The video you are about to see was filmed in Australia, on Sydney’s famous Bondi to Bronte walk.  So, grab a cracker and some peanut butter and just listen …

Blue Eyes
Elton John

Blue eyes
Baby’s got blue eyes
Like a deep blue sea
On a blue blue day

Blue eyes
Baby’s got blue eyes
When the morning comes
I’ll be far away
And I say

Blue eyes holding back the tears
Holding back the pain
Baby’s got blue eyes
And she’s alone
Again

Blue eyes
Baby’s got blue eyes
Like a clear blue sky
Watching over me

Blue eyes
Ooh I love blue eyes
When I’m by her side
Where I long to be
I will see

Blue eyes laughing in the sun
Laughing in the rain
Baby’s got blue eyes
And I am home, and I am home again

Blue eyes laughing in the sun
Laughing in the rain
Baby’s got blue eyes
And I am home again

Songwriters: Elton John, Gary Osborne

  1. You must have known. I’ve got a double album of his Greatest Hits sitting on the arm of the chair just waiting till I’ve finished some more of my mail and I can afford to be distracted.This was a nice little taster.

  2. Good song! Hugs to you! Sending smiles your way and hope they brighten up your day! I think you need a copy of “The Odessa Chronicles” for those moments when the blues come! Dewey sings about the blues in one of the stories. 🙂
