{THROWBACK} "open your eyes"

I must confess that I sometimes discover older music through contemporary covers of throwbacks. Such is the case with Bobby Caldwell's "Open Your Eyes." I stumbled across this throwback thanks to this beautiful John Legend cover of the classic.

Which subsequently led me to the original...

And while we're on the subject, see if you can hear the sampling of the original in Common's "The Light."

Stay tuned for a future throwback post featuring Bobby's other hit "What You Won't Do For Love" and a certain British songstress whom we adore.
