About the Song:
Through the Eyes of Love (Theme from Ice Castles)” (sometimes incorrectly referred to as “Looking Through the Eyes of Love”), is an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award-nominated ballad performed by American singer Melissa Manchester, from the soundtrack of the 1978 film Ice Castles.
The song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song at the 1980 awards season, but lost both times, losing to “It Goes Like It Goes” from Norma Rae and “The Rose” from The Rose, respectively.
At the 1980 Academy Awards ceremony, Manchester had the honor of being the first singer to perform two nominated songs on the same night, the other being “I’ll Never Say Goodbye”, which she sang for the film The Promise.
