About Hungry Eyes

"Hungry Eyes" is a song performed by American artist Eric Carmen, a former member of the band Raspberries, and was featured in the film Dirty Dancing (1987). The song was recorded at Beachwood Studios in Beachwood, Ohio in 1987. "Hungry Eyes" peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #3 on the Cash Box Top 100 in 1988. The power ballad was not released commercially in the UK, but it managed to peak at #82 in January 1988, having charted purely on import sales. Songwriters Franke Previte and John DeNicola wrote the song, as well as another hit from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, "(I've Had) The Time of My Life". John DeNicola revamped "Hungry Eyes" for his debut album "The Why Because" released October 2019. "Explaining his version, DeNicola says, "I thought it would be fun to record 'Hungry Eyes' in a way that would set it apart from the Dirty Dancing version and decided to try to make it sound like a modern indie-rock band imitating an 80's synth-pop song."The music video featured Carmen with model Sally Steele, who later founded Vegas Rocks! Magazine.

I've been meaning to tell you
I've got this feelin' that won't subside
I look at you and I fantasize
You're mine and tonight
Now I've got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can't disguise
I've got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

I want to hold you so hear me out
I want to show you what love's all about
Darling tonight
Now I've got you in my sights

With these hungry eyes
One look at you and I can't disguise
I've got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

With these hungry eyes
Now I've got you in my sights
With these hungry eyes
Now did I take you by surprise
I need you to see
This love was meant to be

I've got hungry eyes
One look at you and I can't disguise
I've got hungry eyes
I feel the magic between you and I

I've got hungry eyes
Now I've got you in my sights
With the hungry eyes
Now did I take you by surprise?
With my hungry eyes
With my hungry eyes
Now I've got you in my sights
With my hungry eyes
