Green Eyed Soul is the debut album by German soul/R&B singer-songwriter Sarah Connor, released in German-speaking Europe on November 26, 2001 by Epic. It features main production by Rob Tyger and Kay Denar, with additional production from Bülent Aris, Adam Charon, Mekong Age, Rufi-Oh and rapper TQ.

The album received a generally mixed reception from professional music critics,[2] and upon its release, it opened at number two on the German Albums Chart, and within the top five in Austria, Finland and Switzerland.[3] It was eventually certified triple gold by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry[4] and ranked number twenty-eighth on the German year-end chart.[5]

Altogether Green Eyed Soul spawned three singles: "Let's Get Back to Bed – Boy!" featuring TQ, "French Kissing" (based on a sample of Blackstreet's "No Diggity"), and the ballad "From Sarah with Love", Connor's first number-one hit and breakthrough song.[3] A fourth track, "If U Were My Man", received a limited promotional release in Eastern Europe, but failed to chart anywhere.
