  • Jackie DeShannon in 1974.
  • "This was originally recorded in a 1920s Jazz style by Jackie DeShannon on her 1975 album, New Arrangement. DeShannon wrote the song with Donna Weiss." http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=2289 Of course it was later arranged and made very popular by Kim Carnes in 1981
  • It was first released on Jackie DeShannon's 'New Arrangement' album in 1974, 7 years before the Kim Carnes version came out.
  • I stand corrected - Jackie DeShannon composed "Bette Davis Eyes" with Donna Weiss for her 1974 album "New Arrangement". The song later became a world-wide #1 single for singer Kim Carnes from her "Mistaken Identity" album in 1981. It earned DeShannon the 1982 Grammy Award for Song of the Year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_DeShannon Bette Davis Eyes - Lyrics Her hair is Harlow gold, Her lips sweet surprise Her hands are never cold She's got Bette Davis eyes She'll turn her music on You won't have to think twice She's pure as New York snow She got Bette Davis eyes And she'll tease you She'll unease you All the better just to please you She's precocious And she knows just what it Takes to make a pro blush She got Greta Garbo Stand off sighs, She's got Bette Davis eyes She'll let you take her home It whets her appetite She'll lay you on her throne She got Bette Davis eyes She'll take a tumble on you Roll you like you were dice Until you come out blue She's got Bette Davis eyes She'll expose you When she snows you Off your feet with the crumbs she throws you She's ferocious And she knows just what it Takes to make a pro blush All the boys Think she's a spy, She's got Bette Davis eyes And she'll tease you She'll unease you All the better just to please you She's precocious And she knows just what it Takes to make a pro blush All the boys Think she's a spy, She's got Bette Davis eyes She'll tease you She'll unease you Just to please you She's got Bette Davis eyes She'll expose you When she snows you (fade)
