Eurythmics’ bold musical experimentation culminated in Sweet Dreams -the duo’s biggest hit. When they wrote Sweet Dreams, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart’s whirlwind romance had ended, but they were still looking for the perfect sound together. Co-writer and singer told the Rolling Stone – describing her break up with Dave stewart –. The day Dave and I ended our romance, Eurythmics began. I was curled up in the fetal position. He programmed this rhythm. In the end I couldn’t resist it. "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" Track Info. Written By David A. Stewart & Annie Lennox. Release Date January 21, 1983.

Marilyn Manson recorded this in 1995, giving a much darker tone to the song. Weezer did a lighter version for their 2019 Teal Album. Nas sampled this for his 1996 song "Sweet Dreams. In this program she said she didn't regard "Sweet Dreams" as a song but as a mantra. Hands up those of you who think Annie Lennox sings here: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?" Relax, it's not just you. This tune's lyrics came top of a 2013 this site poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly.

Eurythmics' breakthrough album is a deft mix of electronic thrills, new wave chills, and sultry R&B, the latter supplied by Annie Lennox's warm tenor. Pretty much relying on themselves, Lennox and Dave Stewart slip past the music's usual coldness and into a territory all their own. It can be smug (the new wave here is served with a side of irony) and a tad dull (the long, operatic pieces serve little purpose), but the payoffs - "Love Is a Stranger" and, especially, the magnificent title tune - are among the finest the genre has to offer.

It may be still relevant today, not just for the timeless modernity of the music - but for the message alone. Singing a modest line over and over again, Eurythmics delivered a universally cynical message in their now-eternal and ultimate smash hit - as surreal as it is a warning of things that are now, backfiring at us with brute force, and mercilessly imploding in this world betrayed by capitalism.I remember once reading about this album as "spooky" - the best possible single word to describe "Sweet Dreams"; the very title and daring sleeve designs both hide an assortment of pleasantly bitter sweet chocolates with a nightmarish filling. Annie secretly enticing in her sadomasochistic pose, holding a heart-shaped box, tackling the imagination of the spectators, adding a touch to something far more potently violent in the mix. Three songs pre-dated the very album as singles - and for some strange reason, they were a flop each; "This Is the House", "The Walk" mixing jazz and funk influences to great effect (Dick Cuthell's trumpet solo on "The Walk" especially as mesmerising) and "Love Is a Stranger" with its adorably warm techno-pulse added a touch of soul - the latter causing notorious headlines in the press due to its subversive video. Released during 1982, in the duo's interim between the debut and this second album-to-come, the whole direction would probably end in obscurity if the title megahit never happened; the original title for this album was meant to be "Invisible Hands" (originally credited to one of the duo's experimental b-sides of the time) - a considerable number of non-album pieces grace this period, each a gem, most of which sadly didn't resurface on the 2005 remasters series. Teaming up with Chris & Cosey at the time ("Sweet Surprise" - the 12" released some years after the initial session was recorded), plus looking up to the work of Yazoo and especially The Associates, Annie and Dave took electro-pop on their own whole new level - using cheap technology to amazing results. Deservedly a success in the wake of the synth-pop trend that they made work to their creative and commercial benefits, paying off after years of wandering about - while it may stand inferior to "In the Garden" that many regard nowadays as their finest moment, "Sweet Dreams" is a stunning balance between radio-friendly melody, sense of melancholy and lyrics that often deal with loneliness and despair; the upbeat "I Could Give You (A Mirror)", the elegiac "Jennifer" which hints at suicide, the menacing "Somebody Told Me" or feeling out of focus in a big city ("This City Never Sleeps"). A surreal vignette "I've Got An Angel" makes it a creepy filler, giving the word a truly positive meaning (angels seem to be an obsession of Dave and Annie's throughout their career, so do single men and women ever since "Belinda")... A twisted cover version of "Wrap It Up" including a certain Green Gartside in the background vocals is probably the only number that adds a bit of light in the whole (very much in the wake of the slightly later merry ditty called "Right By Your Side"). As mentioned, it's way too bad that many of the b-sides that accompanied the album at the time (scattered via 7" and 12" singles alike, some of which partially resurfaced on the 2005 remasters) remain overdue for a proper CD release, marking Eurythmics' honest desire to experiment while staying fairly appealing for daily radio play (think in terms of Pet Shop Boys who did their own clever flirt with the avant-garde); "Monkey Monkey" may be considered the very first trip-hop number ever, before the genre was even defined, "Step On the Beast" is a fine uptempo number with a reference to overdose (similar subject explored later in "Aqua"), the mentioned "Invisible Hands" adds a noir atmosphere to it (and as mentioned, could very easily pass for a Chris & Cosey number), the gorgeously sad story of domestic violence in "Home Is Where the Heart Is" plus the most unusual experiment called "Dr. Trash", which is actually a solo-experiment by Robert Crash, who was sharing production duties with Dave Stewart during the making of "Sweet Dreams". Also "Baby's Gone Blue" (almost as if the duo's forensic take on a Virgin Prunes' song) with random tape loop bits and random lyric lines ("Whom we're going to send the flowers to?" / "Look at the mess in your party jazz")... A lot to reach out for, and despite "Sweet Dreams" so vastly overplayed ever since, the very album still provides a great deal of listening pleasure - or for the sheer perversity of it.
