For Your Eyes Only (Cover Version of Sheena Easton)

For Your Eyes Only

I did not pay much attention on this song until the year 2012.  I was preparing the Britain's Got Talent​ and this song caught my attention because of .... I suddenly had found a new inspiration to sing this song and knew the way to sing it instinctively ... just like a guided angles guide me how to sing it like Sheena Easton.  But I wasn't well prepared for that and now first time I am trying to record it and see how it goes from there.  Now it is for your ears only!!! Happy Listening my dears FOLKS ...

For Your Eyes Only

From: Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia.
"For Your Eyes Only" is the theme tune to the 12th James Bond movie, For Your Eyes Only, written by Bill Conti and Mick Leeson, and performed by Scottish singer Sheena Easton. The song reached number four on the US Billboard Hot 100, and number eight on the UK Singles Chart.[1][2] It was nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1982.

The American new wave band Blondie wrote a song entitled "For Your Eyes Only" in the hopes of making it the upcoming James Bond film's opening-title theme, but the producers preferred another song with the same title, written by Bill Conti and Mike Leeson.

Conti – who was also responsible for the film's score – had originally written the song thinking about Donna Summer or Dusty Springfield, singers he thought "fit the Bond style". Film studio United Artists suggested Sheena Easton, an up-and-coming singer who had recently scored a No.1 hit in America with "Morning Train". Conti heard Easton's debut album Take My Time and felt unimpressed, but decided to work with her in the song after meeting Easton in person. Leeson's lyrics originally only used "for your eyes only" as the final line, as the lyricist felt he could only use the phrase as a conclusion. After Conti met credit sequence artist Maurice Binder, who complained about having to synchronize the unveiling of the title with it being said in the theme song, he decided to meet with Leeson to make lyrics that opened with "for your eyes only".[3]

Easton is the only artist (to date) to be seen singing the theme song to a Bond movie during its opening titles, as Maurice Binder liked Easton's appearance and decided to add her to the credits.[4] Her seductive appearance in these clips was, according to Roger Moore, more sexy than any of the Bond girls, although Easton herself states that the filming process was very unglamorous.[5][6] In particular, Binder had to attach Easton to a chair so she would be immobile during a take where the camera zooms on the singer's lips.[4]

Easton is one of three Scots to have sung a Bond theme, the others being Lulu's singing The Man with the Golden Gun and Shirley Manson (as part of the band Garbage) for The World Is Not Enough.[citation needed]

This was one of the few Bond themes not to have a contribution by John Barry. The song was produced by Christopher Neil, who was Easton's regular producer at the time.

The song was released as a single in June 1981, at the same time as the film's launch. It became a worldwide hit, reaching the top ten in the UK, number 1 in the Netherlands and top five in the US. It remains one of Easton's biggest hits and is still included on numerous compilation soundtrack albums.[7]

The video "For Your Eyes Only" was directed by Steve Barron. The song's music, with different lyrics & a different title ("To Know No Boundaries"), was used in a series of advertisements for Merrill Lynch during the mid-1980s.

For your eyes only, you can see me through the night,
for your eyes only, I never need to hide,
you can see so much in me,
so much in me that's new,
I never felt, till I looked at you.

For your eyes only, only for you,
you see what what no one else can see,
now am breaking free, for your eyes only,
only for you.

The love I know you need in me,
the fantasy you freed in me,
only for you, only for you.

For your eyes only, the nights are never cold,
you really know me, that's all I need to know,
maybe I'm an open book,
because I know your mine
but you dont need to read between the lines.

For your eyes only, only for you,
you see what no one else can see,
now am breaking free, for your eyes only,
only for you.

The passions that collide in me,
the wild abandoned side of me,
only for you, for your eyes only.
