Enrique Iglesias version

Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias recorded a version of "Sad Eyes" and included it on his first English language released titled Enrique. While recording the album Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine who had previously worked with Springsteen found out that Iglesias was a fan of his (Iglesias often cites the Born in the U.S.A. tour as a favorite concert experience and Springsteen as his favorite performer) and urged him to record "Sad Eyes".

The song was released as the fourth single. The album version was not released to radio but rather the HQ2 remix which gave the song a more pop sound. Iglesias did not promote the song and it was not as successful as the previous singles from the album. However, the collected remixes charted high on the club play charts. A Spanish version of the song was also recorded titled "Más Es Amar".

Music video

A music video was shot, directed by David LaChapelle, but it was shelved at the time due to its sexual content.[3] It eventually surfaced in late 2009 on various video-sharing sites.
