Eye in the Sky is the sixth album by The Alan Parsons Project, released in 1982.
Songs on this album are in a number of different styles, from cool and funky to lyrical and heavily orchestrated. The Hipgnosis-designed sleeve was green with an image of the Eye of Horus, which was gold-foil stamped for early pressings of the LP. It is variously reported as their best-selling album, and was the last Platinum record from the band (joining I Robot and The Turn of a Friendly Card).
Vocal performers were Eric Woolfson, David Paton, Chris Rainbow, Lenny Zakatek, Elmer Gantry and Colin Blunstone.
Eye in the Sky contained the Project's biggest hit, the title track with lead vocals by Eric Woolfson. The album itself was a major success, reaching the Top 10 in numerous countries.

This album contains the well-known instrumental piece "Sirius," which has become a staple of many big-time college and professional sporting arenas throughout North America. It is perhaps best known for its use by the Chicago Bulls to introduce its starting lineup (including Michael Jordan) during its championship years of the 1990s and continued to the present. It was even the opening song of the documentary Michael Jordan to the Max. It is also used as the soundtrack for the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team tunnel walk before every home game. The song was also used by the New Orleans Saints as their entrance music for Super Bowl XLIV.
During the mid-1980s, it was also used as the ring entrance theme for Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat by WWE, at that time known as the WWF. However, to avoid paying royalties, WWE has edited out Steamboat's entrances with the track or overdubbed them with a homegrown theme from his 1991 run in the WWF.
"Sirius" segues into "Eye in the Sky"; the former is always followed by the latter on airplay, though not always in live performances – at the World Liberty Concert "Sirius" was played as the introduction to "Breakaway" (Try Anything Once) with Candy Dulfer on saxophone.
In recent years, the song has been used on the trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, at Euro 2012, features on the soundtrack to NBA 2K11, and for a Nissan Altima TV commercial.
