Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) is a New Wave album by British synth pop duo Eurythmics, released in January of 1983 (see 1983 in music). Their popular breakthrough after a few minor British hits, this album became a blockbuster on both sides of the Atlantic, with the title track being especially popular; it remains one of Eurythmics' most recognizable songs, and its music video, popular on MTV in the United States, is memorable for Annie Lennox's gender-bending psycho-sexual imagery.
