The first of ten Top 40 hits that Eurythmics had from 1983-89- was their biggest. I first remember seeing the video which on first sight seemed startling- but the song was also outstanding and different sounding for Top 40 radio at the time. I bought and liked the album- I hadn’t realized that a couple years earlier they had released an album- which had never charted anywhere. ‘Sweet Dreams’- one of a number of outstanding #1’s in 1983-84.
