Evita:I've Never Been To Me是Charlene Duncan(夏琳鄧肯)代表作,也是鄧麗君最愛的一首歌,未曾有自我(I've Never Been to Me)是一首充滿女性自覺的抒情歌曲。歌曲的敘述方式十分特別:描述一個歷經滄桑的女人,見到一位因不滿自己的生活,準備去追尋"自由"的怨婦,忍不住真摯地提出忠告:"我自己也曾經有過放蕩形骸的生活,甚至為追尋所謂的自由走遍了世界;而且憑藉年輕和美貌,曾得到過別的女人做夢都不敢想的快樂時光;但是到頭來卻是一場空,等到年紀大了才發覺自己過去所追求的不過是鏡花水月,甚至從未有過真正的自我"。


雖然歌中唱的是勸告別人,但聽起來卻像是在規勸幾十年前的自己。她規勸那位彷徨的婦女"要好好珍惜自己擁有的,珍惜自己懷抱中的孩子,以及那經常拌嘴卻是真心愛自己的丈夫"。她說自己雖然到過所謂的快樂"天堂",卻從來沒未找到過自我,希望別人不要再重蹈她的覆轍。
