Song of the day: Kim Carnes- Bette Davis Eyes
In 1981, Kim Carnes covered a song by Jackie DeShannon. She recorded it as a jazz song in 1975, inspired by an old movie with Bette Davis in it. Donna Weiss, one of the writers, submitted a demo to Kim Carnes, who decided to record the song. The song became a hit in the US, where it was number 1. Bette Davis then wrote a letter to Kim Carnes and the writers, to tell that she was a fan of the song. Enjoy
