“Sweet Dreams (are made of this)” knocked The Police’s “Every Breath You Take” off the throne on the 3rd September 1983 where it had reigned for seven long weeks.

Eurythmics had their lone week at the top being toppled by Michael Sembello’s “Maniac” from the film Flashdance.

Eurythmics were never again able to ascend to the top — the closest they could get was #4 with “Here Comes the Rain Again” in 1984 and #5 with “Would I Lie To You?” in 1985
