A few weeks ago, I alluded to today’s one hit wonder displacing another song with a similar title from becoming a national hit. The other tune was “White Lies” by Nils Lofgren and Grin and it was released in December 1971 – the same month as Bullet’s “White Lies, Blue Eyes.” It was Bullet’s only hit and it peaked at #28 in 1972.
The song was written by Bobby Flax and Lanny Lambert who authored nearly 80 songs separately and together. Bullet was one of the few artists to be signed to Big Tree Records during their early days when the label was distributed by Ampex Records. “White Lies, Blue Eyes” was Big Tree’s 23rd single release.
