Kim Carnes

Kim Carnes was born on 20 July 1945 Hollywood, California, is a US singer-songwriter. She is a two-time Grammy Award winner noted for her distinctive raspy vocal style. Some people have called her "The Female Rod Stewart" due to her raspy voice.

Kim Carnes is the Grammy winning singer-songwriter best known for her distinctive gravelly voice and hit single "Bette Davis Eyes". The single came from Carnes sixth studio album Mistaken Identity and spent nine weeks at No.1. Although Carnes released eight more studio albums, she was never able to equal the success of either Mistaken Identity or "Bette Davis Eyes".

"Bette Davis Eyes"

In 1981, Carnes recorded the Jackie DeShannon and Donna Weiss song "Bette Davis Eyes". As the first single released from the album
Mistaken Identity, it spent nine weeks at number one on the US singles charts and became a worldwide hit. The song's success propelled the album to No. 1 for four weeks. The single became the biggest hit of the entire year of 1981, and is second only to Olivia Newton-John's "Physical" as the biggest hit of the 1980s in the USA, according to Billboard. The song earned both the Record of the Year and Song of the Year awards at the 1982 Grammys. Carnes was nominated for Best Pop Female and Mistaken Identity also earned a nomination for Album of the Year. Two follow-up singles from Mistaken Identity, "Draw of the Cards" and the title track, were both released during 1981.

"Bette Davis Eyes" was written by Jackie DeShannon and Donna Weiss in 1974. Carnes and her band rehearsed the song in the studio for three days to take the melody and overall sound of the record to a darker, more haunting place. Keyboard player Bill Cuomo came up with the signature instrumental lick and together with the band and producer Val Garay created a completely new arrangement of the song, which was recorded live the next day with no overdubs.

Bette Davis admitted to being a fan of the song and approached Carnes and the songwriters to thank them. Davis wrote to Carnes after the song was released saying she loved the song. "It was a thrill to become a part of the rock generation", she said in her memoir 'This 'N That.' Davis' grandson, Ashley, told the screen legend she had "finally made it". Carnes and Davis struck up a special friendship, with the singer visiting her at her home several times until her 1989 death. In what she considers a career highlight, Carnes performed the song live for Davis at a tribute to the legendary actress held just before her death. Most recently, the song has been used in a 2008 Clairol Nice 'n Easy TV commercial in the United Kingdom. The ad featuring the song has expanded into South Africa and other territories around the world. In 2008, the song was featured in the opening scene of the documentary film, Valentino: The Last Emperor.

Most recently "Bette Davis Eyes" was used in Episode 8, Season 1 of Fox's new comedy, Raising Hope. The song can be heard as Virginia Chance races behind the gas station to relieve herself, and is caught publicly urinating.

Bette Davis Eyes

Her hair is Harlow gold, her lips sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold, she's got Better Davis eyes
She'll turn the music on you, you won't have to think twice
She's pure as New York snow, she got Bette Davis eyes

And she'll tease you, she'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo's standoff sighs, she's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll let you take her home, it works her appetite
She'll lay you on the throne, she got Bette Davis eyes
She'll take a tumble on you, roll you like you were dice
Until you come out blue, she's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll expose you, when she snows you
Hope you're pleased with the crumbs she throws you
She's precocious, and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes

And she'll tease you, she'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes

And she'll tease you, she'll unease you
Just to please you
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll expose you, when she snows you
She throws you
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll tease you
Just to please you...

Kim Carnes - Live

Kim Carnes - More Love ? (Live)

She also contributed “I’ll Be Here Where The Heart Is” to the Grammy-winning soundtrack Flashdance and sang with Kenny Rogers and James Ingram on the top 15 hit, “What About Me?”. In addition, she was part of an all-star chorus on the legendary “We Are The World” recording and video. Carnes also wrote and produced the top 20 song “Make No Mistake He’s Mine”, a duet she recorded with Barbara Streisand. Kim Carnes is a wellspring of soul-stirring lyrics and melodies. In total harmony when composing music, she loves the creative process and the opportunity to work with Nashville’s best. “I write from what’s in my heart,” Carnes says. “I write what I love and have always done that. I’m so lucky to be writing and performing with some of the best writers in the world. I’m having a blast.”

Kim Carnes formed her style on the folk-rock circuit, where a dulcet, technical pop voice is not required. Her husky, full voice signifies early '80s radio and is still unforgettable. The sixteen-song collection starts with her 1981 single "Bette Davis Eyes". This song initiated a string of hits that kept her on the world's charts through 1986. Included here is a duet with Kenny Rogers, another gravel-voiced legend. This is a sparse, piano-introduced ballad from Rogers' 1980 Gideon, a concept album on a modern cowboy. Basically, this collection is an album reissue with six bonus tracks. The Mistaken Identity (1981) album contributes the first ten tracks of bouncy synth-pop, such as its title track and "Don't Call It Love." Other songs, like the acoustic guitar-led "When I'm Away From You," the hard rock "Break the Rules Tonite (Out of School)," and the piano and mandolin lament "My Old Pals" expose different facets of this pop talent. Kim Carnes drew on resources of country and folk to bring grace and individuality to the '80s charts. ~ Tom Schulte

"I never had any other thought in my mind. I was gonna write songs, I was gonna be a star and a singer and I never thought of doing anything else."
~ Kim Carnes
