Here’s what has been listed so far.

Across The Universe Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
All My Loving Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Anytime At All If you need somebody to love, just look into my eyes
Blackbird Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
Dear Prudence Dear Prudence open up your eyes
For No One And in her eyes you see nothing
Golden Slumbers Golden Slumbers fill your eyes
Here, There And Everywhere Watching her eyes and hoping I’m always there
I Am The Walrus Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog’s eye.
I Need You I didn’t realize as I looked in your eyes…
I’m Only Sleeping Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
It Won’t Be Long Every night the tears come down from my eyes
It’s All Too Much When I look into your eyes, your love is there for me / With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue
Julia Julia , seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
Lonesome Tears in My Eyes I’m a-tryin’ to forget these Lonesome Tears in My Eyes
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds A girl with kaleidoscope eyes. / Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
Memphis, Tennessee With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
Penny Lane Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
Piggies In their eyes there’s something lacking
Please Mr. Postman So many days passed me by, see the tears standing in my eyes
She’s A Woman She don’t give boys the eye
Strawberry Fields Forever Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
Taxman Declare the pennies on your eyes
Tell Me What You See Open up your eyes now, Tell Me What You See . / Look into these eyes now, Tell Me What You See .
Tell Me Why Holding back these tears in my eyes.
The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill So Captain Marvel zapped him right between the eyes-ah!
The Fool On The Hill And the eyes in his head, See the world spinning around.
The Night Before Love was in your eyes, ah, the night before.
Think For Yourself You’re telling all those lies, about the good things that we can have if we close our eyesk
You’ll Be Mine And I could see a nice little healthy eyeball
You Know My Name Look Up the Number Dennis O’Bell (referring to Dennis O’Dell)

I may not have all the anthology or BBC songs in my list. So there may be more than I think. I have 14 left on my list.

Ooh got another one, one of my faves, that I haven’t seen in the thread – Fool on the Hill

Never mind, you got your list up as I was posting this so I didn’t see that you already have it.

Anytime at all– If you need somebody to love, just look into my eyes

 

Do covers count? Because if they do:

Please Mr. Postman – So many days passed me by, see the tears standing in my eyes

If we are counting the single ‘eye’

“She don’t give boys the eye” – ‘She’s A Woman ‘.

Plural

“Every night the tears come down from my eyes” – ‘It Wont Be Long’

Yes, let’s do count singular. And since Zig added eyeball from You’ll Be Mine , I included another similar one in my list.

and not forgetting…….”Let’s hear it for Dennis O” Dell!!”

Dennis O’ Dell was a film producer who they worked with in A Hard Days Night and John worked with in How I won the war. He gets a mention in You know my name- look up the number.

It’s probably worth mentioning that in the song Lennon says “Let’s hear it for Dennis O’Bell”.

@Ahhh Girl 

Think For Yourself : “You’re telling all those lies, about the good things that we can have if we close our eyes”

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill : “So Captain Marvel zapped him right between the eyes-ah!”

It Won’t Be Long : “Every night the tears come down from my eyes”

Good Night : “Close your eyes and I’ll close mine”

I’m Only Sleeping : “Keeping an eye on the world going by my window”

Also, you had It’s All Too Much but missed another line, the quote from Sorrow: “With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue”

Looking at AG’s compilation above and the entries below it, I don’t believe anyone has listed ‘Happiness Is A Warm Gun ‘:

“Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy working overtime.”

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

@Zig, I just saw that you got Happiness Is A Warm Gun . I added it and Hello Little Girl to the compiled list.

There are at least 6 more songs to go. Happy hunting a-hard-days-night-john-3 while listening.

It’s a pity we can’t add references to sight as in (see/saw/look), a whole bunch jump out when you do that :D

Baby You’re A Rich Man Far as the eye can see
Come Together He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller
Good Night Close your eyes and I’ll close mine
Rocky Raccoon Hit young Rocky in the eye Rocky didn’t like that
Yer Blues The eagle picks my eye

Good job, @ewe2!!! Those are 5 of the 6 I had left on my list.

OK, everyone. Only 1 more to go on my list. How exciting!
