Reminiscent of the doo-wop ballads of the 1950s, "Sad Eyes" became one of several non-disco, or disco-influenced, tunes to tát top the 1979 pop chart. It was released in April 1979, when many music fans were primarily listening to tát disco. In August 1979 there was a cultural anti-disco backlash that encouraged many to tát turn from disco to tát pop music instead. "Sad Eyes" is notable as the tuy nhiên that ended the six-week reign of the biggest smash hit of the year, The Knack's "My Sharona". The lyrics of this tuy nhiên describe the sadness experienced by a woman with whom the lyricist had a fling while his normal significant other was away when he has to tát leave her behind to tát return trang chính to tát his normal life with his primary partner.
