1. Crystal Gayle- Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue
Easily her most famous song, “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue” by Crystal Gayle was a massive hit in the late ’70s. It’s a typical country heartbreak song, where the narrator sings of her former lover that is no longer hers- “Don’t know when I’ve been so blue / Don’t know what’s come over you / You’ve found someone new / And don’t it make my brown eyes blue.” By the way, did you know Crystal Gayle doesn’t even have brown eyes? They’re actually already blue!
