Description

Cover of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", originally by Frankie Valli (1967).

Additional information

"Can't Take My Eyes Off You" was originally performed by Frankie Valli (The Four Seasons) in 1967, and made it to #2 on the US charts. Muse performed their version live on BBC Choice's "Re:Covered" and both Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard did backing vocals. It is one of the few songs Howard has performed backing vocals for, as during the recording of Blackout, it was determined that he cannot, in fact, sing in tune.

A very popular song throughout the world, it has been covered by a diverse range of artists, from Andy Williams and Engelbert Humperdinck to The Killers and Manic Street Preachers.

The song was played for the first time since 2002 in January 2010 at a gig in Tokyo, and a second time at the Zepp Tokyo in August 2013.

Lyrics

You're just too good to be true

Can't keep my eyes off of you You feel like heaven to touch I wanna hold you so much At long last love has arrived And I thank God I'm alive You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off you

Pardon the way that I stare There's nothing else to compare The sight of you makes me weak There are no words left to speak But if you feel like I feel Please let me know that it's real You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off of you

I love you, baby And if it's quite all right I need you, baby To warm the lonely nights I love you, baby Trust in me when I say Oh, pretty baby Don't bring me down, I pray Oh, pretty baby Now that I found you, stay And let me love you, baby Let me love you

You're just too good to be true Can't keep my eyes off of you You feel like heaven to touch I wanna hold you so much At long last love has arrived And I thank God I'm alive You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off of you

I love you, baby And if it's quite all right I need you, baby To warm the lonely nights I love you, baby Trust in me when I say Oh, pretty baby Don't bring me down, I pray Oh, pretty baby Now that I found you this day Let me love you, baby Let me love you
