Download: Alan Parsons Project -- "Eye In The Sky"
Let's see, how did this track make its way back into our lives? I guess I first thought about the song again when Marc Hogan aptly compared Midlake's 2006 hit "Roscoe" to EITS in his review of The Trials of Van Occupanther. Then, a few months later, as fate would have it, the song reared its head again on a Razor & Tie compilation, Smooth Rock, which we were fortunate enough to have sent our way. While I won't bore you with a description of my entirely sincere, non-ironic infatuation with yacht rock, nor my thwarted plans for an awesome Team Clermont tenth anniversary yacht-rock themed prom, I will tell you that even a potential Smooth Rock enthusiast such as myself was soon rendered powerless to listen to any track other than "Eye In The Sky" again and again. You can't tell me this song isn't the jam, you just can't.
