After all the arguments, the tweets, the name-calling, the tears, the 12 tracks have now been chosen to go onto the Scotlands Greatest Album. Eurythmics were up against some tough competition but made it through to the final 3 songs from the 1980’s to go onto the album, along with Deacon Blue and Dignity and The Proclaimers Sunshine on Leith.
STV, Real Radio and The Sun convened a panel of music industry experts to select an initial short list of 60 tracks for you to choose from for Scotland’s Greatest Album. The panel consisted of T In the Park supremo Geoff Ellis, Scottish Sun columnist and DJ Jim Gellatly, SNP MSP Joan McAlpine, Real Radio DJ Steve McKenna, songwriter John McLaughlin, and football pundit and now popular DJ Pat Nevin.
Eurythmics came third out of the 15 records in the 1980’s category. You can watch the show (part 2) if you are in the UK here:
