The Frontiers - I Only Have Eyes For You FLAC album
I knew Roger from his song "You" by the Frontiers. I did my homework and discovered all the vocal wonder that Roger has blessed us with over the years.
I Only Have Eyes for You is an album by American pop singer Johnny Mathis that was released on May 10, 1976, by Columbia Records and included two new songs, "Yellow Roses on Her Gown" and "Ooh What We Do", which was written specifically for him, as well as a contemporary arrangement of the 1934 title track that foreshadowed his recordings of standards that incorporated a disco beat ("Begin the Beguine", "Night and Day") a few years later.
I Only Have Eyes for You" is a romantic love song by composer Harry Warren and lyricist Al Dubin, written for the film Dames (1934) where it was introduced by Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler. The song is a jazz standard, and has been covered by numerous musicians. Successful recordings of the song have been made by Ben Selvin (in 1934), Peggy Lee (in 1947), The Lettermen (in 1966), Art Garfunkel (in 1975), The Three Degrees (in 1982), and Rod Stewart (in 2003), among others
Album Flamingo Serenade. I Only Have Eyes for You Lyrics. The moon may be high (Sha bop sha bop) But I can't see a thing in the sky (Sha bop sha bop) I only have eyes for you. I don't know if we're in a garden Or on a crowded avenue (Sha bop sha bop)
I Only Have Eyes for You" is the nineteenth episode of season two of the television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the thirty-first episode in the series. It was directed by James Whitmore Jr. and written by Marti Noxon. It was originally broadcast on April 28, 1998. Sunnydale is haunted by the ghosts of a former student and teacher, who reenact their romance through the bodies of current students.
The song was actually written for a film in the 1930s, and it also became popular on the music charts at that time. However, the Flamingos’ 1959 version gave the song a whole new dimension. Flamingo Serenade also helped with the release of singles. The first song released from this album was Love Walked In, issued ahead of the album, in March 1959. This single, however, failed to chart. But the next song they tried as a single, I Only Have Eyes For You, with Nate Nelson singing the lead, hit pay dirt. The song became a big hit. It first received notice in Philadelphia, and soon spread through the Northeast.
Frank Sinatra recorded this in 1962 with the Count Basie Orchestra, and Johnny Mathis named an album after this song in 1976. The Count Basie Orchestra did it again in 1990 with George Benson; Art Garfunkel made a very romantic version on his 1975 Breakaway album, which topped the UK chart, reached on the US Hot 100, and was a Adult Contemporary hit. The Lettermen did a version in 1966, and Jerry Butler covered it in 1972 Finally, it was about 12 or one in the morning, and I was so tired that I fell asleep, and in my dream I heard 'I Only Have Eyes For You' just the way it came out on our record. I heard the 'doo-bop sh-bop', I heard the way the harmony would sound - I heard the harmony so clear, and I heard the structure of the chords.
In 1976, the Johnny Mathis/Jack Gold singer/producer team reunited after 1975's stint with producer John Florez for the When Will I See You Again album. It's right back to that familiar and successful groove on I Only Have Eyes for You, with Gene Page arranging and conducting Gold's production work. A movie theme and adult contemporary reworkings continue the song selection from the year before.
