“A Pair of Brown Eyes” is a single by The Pogues, their first to make the UK Top 100, peaking at Number 71. It featured on the band’s second album, Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash, and was composed by Pogues front man Shane MacGowan.

The music video for “A Pair of Brown Eyes” was directed in 1985 by Alex Cox and was set in a Nineteen Eighty-Four-esque Britain with Margaret Thatcher in the place of Big Brother as a supreme, god-like authoritarian figure. The video featured roles played by band members as well as a cameo by Elvis Costello.
