Green Eyed Soul is the debut album by German singer-songwriter Sarah Connor, released in German-speaking Europe on November 26, 2001 by Epic. It features main production by Rob Tyger and Kay Denar, with additional production from Bülent Aris, Adam Charon, Mekong Age, Rufi-Oh and rapper TQ.
The album received a generally mixed reception from professional music critics, and upon its release, it opened at number two on the German Albums Chart, and within the top five in Austria, Finland and Switzerland. It was eventually certified triple gold by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry and ranked number twenty-eighth on the German year-end chart.
Altogether Green Eyed Soul spawned three singles: "Let's Get Back to Bed – Boy!" featuring TQ, "French Kissing" (based on a sample of Blackstreet's "No Diggity"), and the ballad "From Sarah with Love", Connor's first number-one hit and breakthrough song. A fourth track, "If U Were My Man", received a limited promotional release in Eastern Europe, but failed to chart anywhere.

Famous quotes containing the words green, eyed and/or soul:
“Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
Time held me green and dying
Though I sang in my chains like the sea.”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
“This morning, there flew up the lane
A timid lady-bird to our bird-bath
And eyed her image dolefully as death;”
—John Crowe Ransom (18881974)
“I have been told, that in some public discourses of mine my reverence for the intellect has made me unjustly cold to the personal relations. But now I almost shrink at the remembrance of such disparaging words. For persons are loves world, and the coldest philosopher cannot recount the debt of the young soul wandering here in nature to the power of love, without being tempted to unsay, as treasonable to nature, aught derogatory to the social instincts.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
