I Only Have Eyes for You
I Only Have Eyes for You (Harry Warren, Al Dubin)
The song was introduced in the film Dames (1934). It plays frequently as background music through the film, but there are two scenes in which it is featured. First it is sung by Dick Powell to Ruby Keeler during a ferry trip when he has a desire to tell her how he feels about her. The second instance is a big production number choreographed by Busby Berkeley, sung by Powell, Keeler and chorus.
