“Love Is a Stranger” (Eurythmics)

And I want you

And I want you

and I want you so

It’s an obsession

Love is probably one of the most difficult things to describe, and pop music (like any other form of Art on Earth) tried to do it since the beginning of its story; in 1983, Eurythmics created one of their best interpretations of this universal yet personal feeling: “Love Is a Stranger”.

The opener for Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) introduces love as something mysterious and alluring: “Love is a stranger in an open car, to tempt you in and drive you far away”; and often mystery can lead to very unsafe and addictive paths: “And love, love, love is a dangerous drug, you have to receive it and you still can’t get enough of the stuff”.

Even if quite everyone in the world is searching for it, this multiform emotion often brings very tough times: “It’s hard and restrained and it’s totally cool, it touches and it teases as you stumble in the debris”.
