The 100 Greatest Bands of all time - #80 Eurythmics

Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart met in a restaurant in London in 1975. The fusion of Stewart, a prodigiously talented producer, songwriter, and musician with Lennox, one of the most spectacular vocalists of her generation led to some of the most haunting and beautiful songs of the 80s. Their first MTV splash came with the Sweet Dreams video and Annie Lennox’s androgynous look. My favorite was always Here Comes the Rain Again. It was a great string of hits throughout the 80s.

Here's the one that made them famous. One of the most iconic videos of the 80s.

Really great video

Tied for my favorite Eurythmics song. Haunting and atmospheric. Both the video and the song are classic.

My other favorite Eurythmics track is one you may not have heard. They did the soundtrack for the film version of Orwell's 1984. This is Sex Crime and it is awesome.

Great rocker from Annie and Dave. They used to play this video constantly back in the day.

This is a beautiful song with some of Annie's most gorgeous vocals. It's all that and a Stevie Wonder harmonica solo.

run run run run

and we conclude our look at Eurythmics with Missionary Man.
