The title "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" (a play on words for "Sweet Judy Blue Eyes") relates to Stephen Stills' ex-girlfriend, singer/songwriter Judy Collins, and the lyrics to the majority of the suite's parts are about her and their impending split. The song was written during a difficult time in Stills' life when he was going through an alcohol addiction that led to him being fired from his job as a road manager for David Crosby's band.
Stills has said that he wrote the song after learning that Collins had broken up with another boyfriend. He also said that it was inspired by Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road.
Collins recorded the song later that year for its release as a single on the soundtrack to the film Hot Blooded. The song became her first top 10 hit in the United States. A music video was made for the song, featuring both Stills and Collins singing along to the song on-screen.
Here is how the song begins:
I'm sitting here thinking of things to say
When you're gone there's nothing left but memories
Of all those times we spent together
You mean so much to me
And I know we can't be together anymore

Garland became a pop culture icon due to her work during the 1950s and 1960s.

After the movie success, she continued to have success with other films such as A Star Is Born (1954), Peter Pan (1953), and Charlie Chan in London (1988).
