ďThine eyes are springs in whose serene

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
What better to follow smiles than eyes? I started to offer it as a contest to see who could identify all these beautiful eyes, but it would just be too easy; there are far too many clues in the naming of the images, and the first one is a total freebie. If you want to guess who's who, it should be fairly obvious that the gals are on the left and the guys are on the right. Chances are excellent that one of them is YOU!
BONUS - In Your Eyes - Peter Gabriel, 1986
"In Your Eyes" is a song by musician Peter Gabriel from his 1986 album So. It reached #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks and #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1986. It was not released as a single in the UK. Gabriel later released an extended version of the song which was nearly 9 minutes in length (as compared to the original 5:29 version that appears on the album). Like many of his songs, "In Your Eyes" contains significant African influences, even more so when performed live (on the So tour) as an extended vocal duet with Youssou N'Dour.
The song was the finale of the Secret World Tour, and is the final track on the Secret World Live album.
In 1993, Gabriel performed the song on Saturday Night Live.
The song was included on the US version of his 2003 compilation Hit, but not on the European or Japanese versions.
In 2005, after 19 years of accumulated sales, the song brought Gabriel his first Gold single, certified in the U.S. by the RIAA.
