Has anyone heard the new version of "Bette Davis Eyes"? Do you know the band that sings it? I tried to do a search on the song and 95% of the hits bring up the version by Kim Carnes. The other 5% are not new enough versions to be the one I am looking for. This version came out this year.

Is it the version from the Duets soudtrack? That's a few years old, though.

I dunno who it is. It's a rock or pop rock version sung by a guy. It is still very new so I rarely hear it on the radio.

there is a group called Handsome Devil that did that song in 2001 - kind of a pop-punky type band. You can find sound clips for all versions of it on yahoo music.

Wed, 5th Apr '06 2:16 AM is a good source. I have to visit there a lot for my job.

Marc Moreland seems to be the only guy who has recorded it although there are some electronica versions. He was with Wall of Voodoo and sounds a bit like Lou Reed/Leonard Cohen/Bob Mould and the song is a bit more downbeat. It's on an album called Take It to the Spotlight.

I just found it. The band is called Space Cadet. And they are from my state too! I had googled "Bette Davis Eyes" so many times. This time I googled "Bette Davis Eyes Remake". Who'd of thought one little word could make a difference.
