Temptation Eyes by The Grass Roots

Album: More Golden GrassReleased: 1970Charted:
15
  • Written by Dan Walsh and Harvey Price, this is the favorite of all the songs that they have written. In addition, lead singer Rob Grill describes it as his "all-time favorite Grass Roots song." It's about a temptress who drives the singer wild, even though he can't have her for himself. (thanks, Jerro - New Alexandria, PA)

Oh, yeah, excellent song! Especially the break in the singer's voice towards the end of the song,"....lookin' through my,my,my soul". Has a great bass line that drives the chorus.Camille - Toronto, Oh
