Aussie teen pop idol Cody Simpson's song "Pretty Brown Eyes" is the most reactive among his fans, so we had to ask him about the tune's origins. Turns out they are pretty simple, but the song has taken on a life of its own among Simpson's legion of fans. That's how we know it's a transcendent track.
"It's one of the most poppy and fun records, with a little reggae and some cool, groovy stuff," the blond singer told ARTISTdirect in this exclusive interview. "I am trying to be more mature, and discovered who I wanted to be artistically."
Simpson shared that it was written about a girl with brown eyes, a girl he was into. It took on a life of its own and turned into an anthem. He pointed out that brown eyes are the most universal eye color, across races, so he wanted to create an anthem around that, and it evolved into such.
We bet all of Cody Simpson's female fans wish he was singing this track to them!
