ALL EYES

Writers: Holly Knight/Connie

Hey hot shot boy
Hand on your hip
You’re wasting your time
Giving me lip
When you look at me it melts my legs
And wraps me around your fingertip

You don’t have to say a word
To get hold of me
Take me shake me
Burning gravity baby
Look at me
Look at me

You’re all eyes all eyes
Touching me in the night
You’re all eyes and those eyes
Are tearing me up inside

We go walking you and I
If some other woman turns your eye
I pull you back in my direction
Too keep you by my side

You don’t have to go nowhere
To get where you should be
You don’t have to look around
Just you look at me look at me look at me
You’re all eyes all eyes
Touching me in the night
You’re all eyes  and those eyes
Are tearing me up inside

You’re all eyes all eyes
Touching me in the night
You’re all eyes  and those eyes
Are tearing me up inside

2. ALL EYES
 

‘The management for Heart called me up and asked if I could meet with the band at SIR Rehearsal Studios in Hollywood. From the moment I met the Wilson sisters we were a sisterhood. (Girls who play rock music always gravitate towards one another because there just aren’t a lot of us). They recorded their record at the Record Plants, both in Hollywood and up in northern California, and I would fly up on the weekends to visit and work with them. I played the keyboards on Never which I really loved because I missed playing in a band. The mysterious writer in the credits, ‘Connie’ is actually Ann and Nancy Wilson. Gene was the guitarist in my band Device. We all came together and wrote Never.

You have no idea how funny those two  girls could be when they were on a roll. I remember working on another record with them in NYC and  they made some hilarious ‘home videos’. One in particular that comes to mind was pure comic gold. They took a lot of takes strumming an acoustic with the weirdest things…a raw steak, someone’s head, a raw egg …

Ann Wilson, another iconic  powerhouse singer…I am so lucky to have worked with some of the best singers out there. Besides Benatar, the record labels alway seem to be looking for the next Ann Wilson to this day. I haven’t seen it happen and don’t expect to either. But like Benatar the original is still alive and kicking.

Nancy’s live in love was a talented but struggling screenwriter, a really cool but adorably geeky guy named Cameron Crowe. Eventually they got married and he became a huge movie director directing movies like Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous and Vanilla Sky, some personal favorites of mine. I was so stoked to see him become one of the most successful, well loved respected directors/screenwriters in the business’. –HK
