Some Zoomers may find this hard to believe; it’s been 40-years since the Eurythmics conquered the world with their hit “Sweet Dreams.”
In reflection, Eurythmic singer Annie Lennox says songs have “their own particular voyages and destinations,” and that’s been the case for “Sweet Dreams.”
As the lyrics suggest, Lennox says the song has continued to “travel the world and the seven seas” ever since, it was released. She calls that a wonderful and miraculous story all by itself.
Lennox, who is now 68, is celebrating the anniversary by posting a video showing photos of her and band mate Dave Stewart and a version of the the song which is playing in reverse.
