About “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”

“Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” is a hidden song by Lauryn Hill from her album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill.

“I hadn’t intended to have a cover on the album at all. The record company asked me to put it on the album as a bonus song because it was a song that I had done for The Conspiracy Theory score. It wasn’t even on the soundtrack. Someone heard it, took it from the film and started playing it on the radio. It spread right across the States, a song that was never intended for radio play or even release. I thought it was kind of funny, another cover version taking off like that. Naturally there was some record company pressure, but if I had my way it wouldn’t be on it at all.” – Lauryn Hill in Muse, 1998.
