Songs You May Have Missed #696

Art Garfunkel: “Bright Eyes” (1979)

This one’s only likely to be a song you may have missed if you reside stateside.

The pop adaptation of songwriter Mike Batt’s “Bright Eyes”–rearranged from the version that appeared in the animated film Watership Down–spent six weeks at #1 in England and was that country’s biggest-selling single of 1979.

And in the US? The gorgeous Art Garfunkel-sung ballad missed the charts completely.

Both the movie and the original Richard Adams book are highly recommended.
