Naked Eye

Album: Fever In Fever Out (1996)
Charted: 25 36

Songfacts®:

  • Luscious Jackson was an all-female alternative funk band which made four albums in the 1990s. "Naked Eye" was the most successful of the songs they produced. It's best remembered for its stylish video, in which all four members of the band (Jill Cunniff, Gabrielle Glaser, Kate Schellenbach and Vivian Trimble) portray the same character, a woman being escorted to a departing airplane by her boyfriend. Though the video looks like it takes place at an airport, it was actually filmed at the World Trade Center.
  • According to frontwoman Jill Cunniff, the video for this song was inspired by the Luis Buniel film That Obscure Object of Desire, which featured two actresses playing the same role. >>
