Bette Davis eyes


"Bette Davis Eyes" is a popular song performed by Kim Carnes in the original key of F minor. Released in 1981, it was composed by Jackie DeShannon and Donna Weiss. The song became a massive hit worldwide, reaching the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for nine consecutive weeks. It also earned Kim Carnes a Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1982. Interestingly, "Bette Davis Eyes" was actually a cover version, as the original song was recorded by Jackie DeShannon in 1974 but did not achieve the same level of success. The melody of the song is catchy and features a memorable synthesizer riff that complements Carnes' husky voice.
