"Eye In The Sky"

OK, more 80's: This Orwellian '82 Eric Woolfson composition was The Alan Parsons Project's only Top 10 hit, peaking at #3. Woolfson was a gambler and was bothered by the "Big Brother" hidden closed-circuit cameras in casinos. Sound engineer Alan Parsons "hated" the song at first - took some convincing for him to record it. Preceded seamlessly in the album by the instrumental "Sirius".

Yesterday's answer: Paul Simon's "I Am A Rock". "I Am A Rock". One of Paul's best! Young Jesuit scholastics in the 60's loved to make us analyze it during English class.
