Final Fantasy VIII: Eyes on Me - Faye Wong :: Review by Sitorimon

Final Fantasy VIII: Eyes on Me - Faye Wong Album Title: Final Fantasy VIII: Eyes on Me - Faye Wong
Record Label: Toshiba EMI
Catalog No.: TODT-5271
Release Date: February 24, 1999
Purchase: Buy at CDJapan


"Eyes on Me" is the vocal theme taken from Final Fantasy VIII. Sung by Faye Wong, this is a love song that's played during a certain point in the game where the lead characters love for each other is declared. The song's lyrics are a little too sickly, but do enough to demonstrate the feelings shown in the scene. The music is very sweeping, with strings complementing the main tune extremely well. It has a presence to it as well that means you will listen to it again and again. It is a beautiful song that saw the start of vocal themes in RPGs being a must-have. That's the reputation it lives up to. Enough said!

The B-side to the single is a song of Faye Wong's sung entirely in Chinese (rather than English in "Eyes on Me"). It follows a similar style to "Eyes on Me" but is a little more reliant on Faye's voice and soft tinkering on a piano. It's another nice song that has a beautiful melody and, although its not catchy, will still have you swaying around in your seat to it! To round off the single is the karaoke version of "Eyes on Me", which you can sing along to with all the backing vocals still left on. Why not give your own stage performance!? Even the words are supplied for you!

"Eyes on Me" has been accused of being too childish, but in this reviewer's opinion, it is a beautiful song that's more than worthy of being the main theme.

Overall Score: 7/10
