The Grass Roots singles chronology

"Temptation Eyes" is a 1971 hit song by The Grass Roots. It was the third single released from their eighth album, More Golden Grass. It reached number 15 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song spent 18 weeks on the charts, making it their single of greatest longevity, three weeks longer than their greatest hit, "Midnight Confessions".

The song describes a man trying to win the heart of a girl who is hesitant to love him due to her past experiences; he tells her that she will succumb to him sooner or later.

Keyboardist Dennis Provisor is given a chance to stand out in this song. After the key signature changes, Provisor makes a soulful improvise while the other members sing the verse.
