Eurythmics, Annie Lennox & Dave Stewart, were one of the defining duos of the 1980s with their New Wave synth-pop sound.
The Eurythmics grew out of late 1970s post-punk band, The Tourists, who were formed after the pair met in London whilst Annie Lennox was studying at the Royal Academy of Music. The duo released their first album, 'In the Garden' in 1981 but really achieved global fame with their second album 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)', that came out in 1983. The title track was an international hit achieving chart-topping success in a number of countries.
The band went on to have hits until the end of the decade by which stage Annie Lennoc had established a reputation as an acclaimed vocalist. After the duo split in 1990, she went on to have a successful solo career and Dave Stewart became a respected music producer.
