The term “blue-eyed soul” dates back to the ’60s. It means R&B-style music created by white people, not necessarily with blue eyes.

The first blue-eyed soul song is considered the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” which hit №1 in 1965. A few years earlier they named an album, Some Blue-Eyed Soul.
