Eye in the Sky” is a 1982 song by the British rock band The Alan Parsons Project from the album Eye in the Sky. It hit #3 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. in October 1982, #1 in both Canada and Spain, and #6 in New Zealand and was their most successful release. The instrumental piece entitled “Sirius” segues into “Eye in the Sky”‘ on the original recording.

The 1:54 minute instrumental piece entitled “Sirius” immediately precedes “Eye in the Sky”‘ on the original recording, which then segues into “Eye in the Sky”. On the single release, “Eye In The Sky” appears on its own, with “Sirius” edited out; this is the version that was usually played on the pop radio at the time. However, album-oriented rock and classic rock stations almost exclusively include the “Sirius” intro.

On the album, “Sirius” segues into “Eye in the Sky”. The former is usually followed by the latter on airplay, though not always in live performances — at the World Liberty Concert “Sirius” was played as the introduction to “Breakaway” (from the Alan Parsons solo album Try Anything Once), with Candy Dulfer on saxophone.
