I Only Have Eyes For You

The Flamingos “I Only Have Eyes For You” entered the pop charts in June 1959.  It was End records 1046, and the flip side was “Goodnight Sweetheart.”  Eventually the song made it to #11 on Billboard’s pop charts.  I can’t understand why this wasn’t a top-three hit.  I’ll bet on a console record player with a tube amp and the correct 78 needle / stylus this sounds great.

One thought on “I Only Have Eyes For You”

  1. This does sound great on a 78 player, much better than a 45. My copy has “At the Prom” as a flip and I’ve personally seen at least one copy with “Goodnight, Sweetheart” as the B-side. I’m guessing it was released in both ways. Most all the images I see online have “At the Prom” on the reverse.
