KATE CEBERANO : Bedroom Eyes
This was the pOp song that came out of nowhere to launch the career of a beautiful Aussie singer. It was a year dominated by The Bangles, Madonna’s Like a Prayer, Fine Young Cannibals and Roxette. But also up there was Kate Ceberano. Bedroom Eyes was so evocative, so catchy, so “radio”, so non-Stock-Aitken-Waterman and so damn sexy. Following a couple of jazz records, no one saw this one coming. And a huge hit it was, top ten for the year and highest selling Australian single of 1989 – a song that has made an indelible mark on Australian music.
