Bobby Vee enjoyed a short though very successful run as a teen idol in the early 60s. He had six gold singles including big hits “Devil or Angel,” “Rubber Ball” and “Take Good Care of My Baby.” “And a thousand eyes can’t help but see if you are true to me So remember when you tell those little white lies That the night has a thousand eyes” Written by Benjamin Weisman, Dorothy Wayne and Marilyn Garrett, the song warns to a lover that the night has a thousand eyes (stars) to see any deceptions like claiming to be home. From the same titled album, “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes” charted at Billboard #3. Vee is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame and retired from performing in 2011 when diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. He died in 2016.
