Lyrics Bette Davis Eyes

Kim Carnes had been a member of New Christy Minstrels alongside Kenny Rogers in the late 1960s. It was around this time that Carnes met her husband Dave Ellington, with whom she would write most of her songs. In the 1970s, the pair formed a folk duo, Kim and Dave, which, besides one song called “Nobody Knows,” was not successful.

In the year 1980, Kim Carnes recorded a duet with Kenny Rogers. “Don’t Fall in Love With A Dreamer” would go on to become a major hit on the country charts. Her first solo hit single came in the same year – a cover version of “More Love” by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. Her best known song, “Bette Davis Eyes,” was recorded the following year. It was written by Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon. It made it to the top of the charts in the United States and also did well overseas. It was the first single from the album Mistaken Identity.

The albums of Kim Carnes include Rest on Me, Kim Carnes, Sailin’, St. Vincent’s Court, Romance Dance, Mistaken Identity, Voyeur, Café Racers, Barking at Airplanes, Lighthouse, View From the House, Checkin’ Out the Ghosts, and Chasin’ Wild Trains.
