"Eyes" is the third and final single from the album Cats Without Claws by Donna Summer. Edited in length from the original version on the album and remixed by John "Jellybean" Benitez, the single peaked at #97 for one week in the UK Singles Chart.[1]

A remix of the calypso-ish "I'm Free" from the Cats Without Claws album was included on the B-side of the UK release of the "Eyes" 12" single. "I'm Free" was performed by Donna and her back-up band on a Dick Clark's American Bandstand 1984 Christmas special,[2] and Soul Train,[3] indicating that the song had originally been intended to be the next single.
