Kim Carnes begon haar carrière als een songwriter in de jaren 60 voor andere artiesten. In die tijd trad ze regelmatig op in clubs en zong in het achtergrondkoor. In 1966 maakte ze kortstondig deel uit van The New Christy Minstrels. Het rauwe stemgeluid van Kim Carnes wordt soms vergeleken met die van zanger Rod Stewart

In 1972 bracht ze haar debuutalbum uit genaamd Rest on me. zonder groot commercieel succes. In 1980 kwam de grote doorbraak voor Kim. Haar samenwerking met Kenny Rogers leidde tot het conceptalbum Gideon. De single van dat album, "Don't fall in love with a dreamer", kwam op nummer 4 in de Billboard Hot 100 maar in Nederland werd het nummer geen hit.

In 1981 bracht Kim haar album Mistaken Identity uit met het nummer "Bette Davis Eyes". Het lied kwam op nummer 1 in de Amerikaanse hitlijsten en werd de bestverkochte single van dat jaar. In Nederland kwam het nummer op de 16e plaats in de Top 40. Daarna had ze alleen nog met het nummer The universal song uit 1984 een bescheiden Top 40 notering.

Songtekst

Invitation to dance
Invitation to romance
Invitation to dance
Invitation to dance

House lights down
My heart is the only sound
Spotlight, music begins and
That feeling takes me again

I close my eyes
Head over heels
You look my way

Whisper to me, come closer
Leaning on your shoulder (shoulder)
Loving the beholder, darling

Invitation to dance
(Give me an) invitation to romance
Invitation to dance
(I need an) invitation to dance

I'm lost in the song
I've been waiting here
For dreams too long

On the street, in my mind
Seeing the picture
Stopping the time

You tip your hat and then
I wave my heart goodbye
Given the wings I fly

To be there on your
Shoulder (shoulder)
Loving the beholder, darling

Invitation to dance
(I need an) invitation to romance
Invitation to dance
(It's just an) invitation to dance

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the magic begins

You don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
And go with the motion again

Invitation to dance
Invitation to romance
Invitation to dance
(I need an) invitation to dance

Invitation to dance
Invitation to romance
Invitation to dance
(Give me an) invitation to dance

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the magic begins

You don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
And go with the motion again

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the magic begins

You don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
Go with the motion again

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the magic begins

Don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
Go with the motion again

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the magic begins

You don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
Go with the motion again

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the magic begins

Don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
Go with the motion again

On the rhythm, on the floor
That's where the magic
Don't need a, to the beat
With the motion

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the
Magic begins, begins

Don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
Go with the motion again

Hot on the rhythm
On the floor, where the magic
Don't need a, to the beat
With the motion

To the beat

Invitation to dance
Invitation to romance
Invitation to dance
(Give me an) invitation to dance

Hot on the rhythm
Hot on the floor
That's where the magic begins

Don't need a reason
Give in to the beat
Go with the motion again

Hot on the rhythm
