The Retro Mix Song of the Week: Bette Davis Eyes by Jackie DeShannon. Although there isn't any performance footage with this video clip, I thought it would be fun for people to compare Jackie's original version with Kim's well-known remake.

Wow! I never even knew Kim's version was a cover.

Mistress of the D: While shopping for CDs in the 90s, I came across "The Best of Jackie DeShannon". Although I only knew a few of her songs, I bought the CD anyway because it had her version of "Bette Davis Eyes". Luckily, I liked the CD overall

Stagg: I also play some of her lesser known tunes like "The Belle of St. Mark", "A Love Bizarre", "Hollyrock", and "Sister Fate".
