Doctor, My Eyes” is a 1972 song written and performed by Jackson Browne and included on his debut album Jackson Browne. Featuring a combination of an upbeat piano riff coupled, somewhat ironically, with lyric about feeling world-weary, the song was a surprise hit, reaching #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in spring 1972, after debuting on the chart at #80. Browne would not see the chart’s Top 10 again until 1982’s soundtrack hit “Somebody’s Baby“, although “Running on Empty” just missed the Top 10, reaching #11. Billboard ranked “Doctor My Eyes” as the No. 92 song for 1972. In Canada, the song peaked at number four. “Doctor, My Eyes” became a concert mainstay for Browne, and was included on both his later compilation albums. A live version can be found on the 1996 Australia CD release Best of… Live, a double-set with Looking East, and the 1997 Japan 2-CD release of Best of… Live, coupled with The Next Voice You Hear: The Best of Jackson Browne.Jesse Ed Davis played the electric guitar while David Crosby and Graham Nash sang backing vocals, and Russ Kunkel played drums.

This likely won’t make sense to others, but I lived through that time, and I just don’t associate this song with that time period! Like Todd Rundgren’s ‘I Saw the Light’. They just seem more ‘late 70’s’.
Haha! I hear ya! Understood. Songs belong to our hearts and are the aural map to to our significant experiences. Thank you for your shared reflections. ☕️☕️☕️🎶
Wonderful songwriter and a pretty decent human being. Have been to see him a couple of times; once when we were both young and once a couple of years ago. Fabulous the first time around and just as good the second.
Yes Jackson is an amazing talent. He is a pleasure to share with many followers who enjoy his music also. Thank you very much for visiting and for your elaborate feedback! Cheers!
