"When You Look Me In The Eyes" Is Released
"When You Look Me in the Eyes" is a song by the American pop-rock band Jonas Brothers.
The song was released as the band's third single from their self-titled second album, Jonas Brothers, in 2007. In the UK it was released as a AA side with Burnin' Up.
There are two versions of the song, featuring different lyrics and production: the first was released on Nick Jonas's solo album, Nicholas Jonas (Joe and Kevin Jonas Sr. (dad) feature on the song, and Kevin Jonas (brother) plays guitar), and the second was released on the album Jonas Brothers. Jason Nevins produced a dance remix of the latter version for promotional release.
The band's Look Me In The Eyes Tour was named after the song, their current single at the time of the tour.
The song was released as the 1st single on the third album A Little Bit Longer in Japan, but goes under the name "Love is Watching Each Other." (in Japanese: 見つめあう恋).
In 2002 while performing in Beauty and the Beast, Nick had written a song with his father called "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)". With background vocals from the Beauty and the Beast cast, Nick performed the song on the 2002 annual Broadway "Equity Fights AIDS" album, Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure, Vol. 4. In November 2003, INO Records received a demo copy of "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)". The label released the song to Christian radio, where it quickly became popular on Record & Radio's Christian Adult Contemporary Chart. While Nick was working on his solo project, Joe followed in his footsteps to Broadway, appearing in Baz Lurhmann's production of La bohème. According to Nick, this was also the first year the brothers started writing songs together.
