Blue eyes

This is just too sweet for my taste. Apparently it is dedicated to actress Elizabeth Taylor. That made me wonder if she has blue eyes, but from the pictures I cannot clearly see. When looking for pictures I get… other things.

Maybe the connection is Taylors work for the gay community at the start of the outbreak of HIV/Aids. This record came out in 1982, exactly during that terrible time.

The B-side is more interesting, it is actually a good song. Hey papa legba. No idea what it is about, but it has a good vibe.
