Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

Eurythmics

1983
RCA

Even if their debut In the Garden wasn’t a chart success, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart’s experience in working in an electronic pop vein following their years in the Tourists clearly suited them so they bore down more on their next album, maybe crossing their fingers a bit. If so, that was the right move: thanks to the stark, compelling title track, Lennox’s voice an immediate presence, Sweet Dreams became their transatlantic breakout, with more singles like the quiet pulse of “Love is a Stranger” and the sassy flow of “The Walk” further building their rep.
