I heard the Kim Carnes’ classic, “Bette Davis Eyes” while driving to work today. I hadn’t heard it in a while, so it was a pretty pleasant surprise. However, I was struck by one of the lyrics.

All the boys think she’s a spy
She’s got Bette Davis eyes.

Now I have tried to write lyrics in the past and realize how difficult it can be to fill out an entire song. But how often do guys speculate that a woman might be a spy? I’m guessing almost never. The song is cool enough that I’ll let it slide. This time.
