Annie Lennox/Dave Stewart
As the hugely successful Eurythmics, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart brought an innovative sound and plenty of style to the 1980s. After “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” topped the charts in 1983, they achieved international fame, their career buoyed by follow-up hits like “Here Comes The Rain Again” and “Would I Lie To You?” Following the band’s breakup, Lennox scored solo with hits including “Why” and “Walking On Broken Glass.”
Key songs in the Lennox and Stewart catalogs include “Here Comes The Rain Again,” “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This),” “Walking On Broken Glass,” “Why” and “Would I Lie To You.”
