the_walk_UK_7inch_1“The Walk” was Eurythmics’ fourth single, produced by Dave Stewart and Adam Williams (ex-bassist of The Selecter) and was self-funded at Eurythmics own 8-track home studio. As with their previous three singles, it was a commercial failure, reaching only #89 in the UK Singles Charts. Eurythmics filmed their second music video to accompany the single. As yet, this video has not been released commercially, though is available on the YouTube link below. The music video features Lennox wearing a trench coat, and performing in a room with Stewart sitting reading a newspaper.

All the non-album tracks from this single were omitted from Sony BMG’s remastering of 2005, and remain unavailable on CD. “Invisible Hands” had been the working title for what became the group’s Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) album, but in the end was dropped from the album altogether.
