It’s certainly one of the most recognizable doo-wop songs ever. “I Only Have Eyes for You” was made famous by the Flamingos in 1959. With its slow, almost dirgelike tempo, it’s the slowest of slow-dance songs. Reverb-heavy and echoey to the point that it seems to have been recorded in a cavern, “I Only Have Eyes” is also surely one of the creepiest wedding songs ever played. It sounds like a song you’d hear if you got trapped in a high school gymnasium at night and were witness to a ghostly re-creation of some long-ago prom. Despite that, it is apparently a very in-demand first-dance tune.
