Advocate.com Editors

Since bursting onto the charts with 1983’s number 1 synth-pop smash “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart of Eurythmics have been confounding showbiz conventions, whether via Annie’s gender-bending look or the band’s ever-evolving sound. For their 25th anniversary the duo just released Eurythmics Ultimate Collection plus deluxe reissues of eight studio albums. With over 75 million records sold, they’re still making music, such as their triumphant new single, “I Got a Life,” and Annie’s 2003 Oscar-winning solo, “Into The West” (from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King). Eurythmics keep seeing their sweet dreams come true.
