Album Review

It may have taken them a little while to get going, but when the Eurythmics hit their stride with their second album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), they began a hit streak that defined them as one of the most commercially successful and musically satisfying new wave bands of the '80s. For six years, the group was reliable, turning out at least one great single on each album, none of which sounded identical, yet all were recognizable as the work of Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox. Greatest Hits summarizes those glorious years and while it misses a couple of hits — a bad thing when the sublime "Right by Your Side" is concerned, but not when "Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty-Four)" is — it remains an excellent collection. It might not follow a strict chronological order, but it flows nicely, revealing that the band that produced such chilly synth pop classics as "Sweet Dreams," "Here Comes the Rain Again," "Love Is a Stranger," and "Who's that Girl?" were capable of delivering equally captivating light pop and ballads ("There Must Be an Angel [Playing with My Heart]," "Don't Ask Me Why," "Thorn in My Side"), ersatz soul ("Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves"), and hard-driving rock & roll ("Missionary Man," "I Need a Man"). Few of their contemporaries were capable of such range, and Greatest Hits proves that the best of the Eurythmics' work were undeniable pop classics. [Greatest Hits is also available in a release with added bonus tracks.]

Sweet Dreams to Sweet Dreams

The song Sweet Dreams is an absolute classic. It was made before I was even born and it is one of the best songs ever. Definate must!

Perfection!!!!

Annie Lennox is gifted with the most beautiful voice anyone could ever have!!! If your an 80's child then you'll remember all these great songs. How do you pick your favourite diamond? Well, for me, it's always Sweet Dreams as I have so many memories attached to that song. I had the pleasure of meeting Annie Lennox recently & gotta say, she still looks stunning! She's pure class!!!!!

Best Album from Annie and Dave!

This has to be their best album. Brilliant tracks!

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Eurythmics were one of the most successful duos to emerge in the early '80s. Where most of their British synth pop contemporaries disappeared from the charts as soon as new wave faded away in 1984, Eurythmics continued to have hits until the end of the decade, making vocalist Annie Lennox a star in her own right, as well as establishing instrumentalist Dave Stewart as a successful, savvy producer and songwriter. Originally, the duo channelled the eerily detached sound of electronic synthesizer music...
