1. Restless Heart- Bluest Eyes In Texas
Released in May 1988 as the lead single on their album Big Dreams in a Small Town, “Bluest Eyes In Texas” by Restless Heart is a song that Van Stephenson co-wrote after running into an ex-girlfriend who had blue eyes. The narrator of the song is haunted by his ex with blue eyes, and he can’t seem to get them out of his head- “The bluest eyes in Texas / Are haunting me tonight / Like the stars that fill the midnight sky / Her memory fills my mind.”
