About Contact

"Contact" is a 1978 disco single by Edwin Starr. The hook line is in the chorus, "Eye to eye, contact". The single was #1 on the disco chart for one week, early in 1979. It also crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his highest charting pop single in seven years, peaking at #65. "Contact" also made the Top 20 on the R&B Charts, peaking at #13. The song found more success in the UK, where it was a Top Ten hit, peaking at #6, in early 1979 (it would also earn Edwin a silver disc for sales in excess of 250,000 copies, along with the very first silver 12" award in recognition of sales over 100,000 copies). It proved to be his second best performance on the UK Charts, beaten only by his #3 smash "War" in 1970. His follow-up single, "H. A. P. P. Y. Radio", was also a UK hit, making it to #9 in mid-1979.

Contact!

Across the crowded disco-room
You're amazed of dancing people
She sets a fire there all alone
Wanna get you the disco-fever

And if she raised her head her eyes caught mine
And that was all that I needed
In her eyes I saw the need for love
The warm, soft feeling
'Cause we made

Eye to eye contact
Eye to eye contact (Oh, oh, oh yeah)
Eye to eye contact (We made)
Eye to eye contact
You and me

Contact!
You were looking at me
I was looking at you
You were looking at me

Across the crowded disco-room
Oh, your eyes told me the story
My heart was beating like the drum
As I walked my way over

I never took my eyes away from yours
Not even for a moment
What I saw in your eyes made me realize
(You I wanted) Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Eye to eye contact (We made)
Eye to eye contact (Oh, oh, oh yeah)
Eye to eye contact (We made)
Eye to eye contact
You and me

I was looking at you
You were looking at me
I was looking at you
You were looking at me

Contact!

I was looking at you
You were looking at me
I was looking at you
You were looking at me
