"Living Eyes" is a power ballad recorded by the Bee Gees and was released in November 1981 as the second single and title track off the LP of the same name. It was written by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb. The sound of this single was closer musically to the rest of the album than its predecessor, "He's a Liar".

Release

The song starts in A minor with synthesizer played by Albhy Galuten blended with Barry's voice (mimicking the synthesizer line). On the verses, Barry sings low and high harmony.

"Living Eyes" was a top ten hit on the Australia Kent Music Report singles chart,[1] and in Austria. It peaked at No. 45 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in late 1981;[2] which marked the end of the Gibbs' Top 40 singles streak which began in 1975 with "Jive Talkin'".

On its promotional video, Barry, Robin and Maurice perform in front of an audience of children with Barry and Maurice on acoustic guitars while Robin was the only one that didn't play any instruments. The video was later premiered on Solid Gold.
