5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Directed May 9, 2001
One of the best things I find intriguing about Eurythmics, is their ability to make incredible music videos without employing a dozen directors and producers, just simplistic artistic pieces of work. There is plenty of unforgettable videos notably "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This), which Annie Lennox reveals her androgynous image, "Love Is A Stranger" with Annie discuised as a first-class call girl going undercover, and later dresses in various other discuises, "Would I Lie To You" where Annie totally ditches her boyfriend in an attempt to declare independence, "Beethoven (I Love To Listen To)" is the most interesting on the video, here Annie appears to be an ordinary house wife but goes out of her mind and reveals her sexual side (she pulls of her wig, to reveal her blonde hair and wears a very revealing outfit), and last but not least "Don't Ask Me Why" where Annie & Dave Stewart are dressed in high fashion avoiding eye contact to let the viewer know that it's over between them. If your for high-class and good quality music videos, or if your a fan of Eurythmics, this is definitely the tape to buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars a mix of styles and quality April 28, 2004
There are a handful of gems in this collection of videos that span the years of 1982-1989, with the talents of the great Annie Lennox, and producer/instrumentalist Dave Stewart.
All songs are credited to Lennox/Stewart, except for "When Tomorrow Comes", which is Lennox/Stewart/Seymour. Total running time is 1 hour and 35 minutes.
Even in the songs that are rather mediocre, Lennox is a fascinating performer to watch; with her androgynous beauty, a strange angular grace, and her diva's aura.
The song list is:
1: "Sweet Dreams". The first big hit, with a wonderful melody that keeps playing in your head, long after the song has ended.
2: "Love is a Stranger"
3: "Who's that Girl ?"
4: "Right by Your Side"
5: "Here Comes the Rain Again"
6: "Sex Crime (1984)"
7: "Julia". With chant-like simplicity, this focuses on closeups of Lennox's face. it's a marvelous song, and a stylish video.
8: "Would I Lie to You ?". Jazzy and brassy, this one is fun.
9: "There Must be an Angel". This is probably the one I find the least interesting.
10: "Sisters are Doin' it for Themselves". A superb duet with Aretha Franklin. Two terrific voices making a perfect blend, and they both look knock-out good. I think this is the best video of the lot.
11: "It's Alright (Baby's Coming Back)"
12: "When Tomorrow Comes"
13: "Thorn in My Side"
14: "Miracle of Love"
15: "Missionary Man"
16: "Beethoven (I Love to Listen to)"
17: "I Need a Man"
18: "You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart"
19: "Don't Ask Me Why"
20: "The King and Queen of America"
21: "Angel".

3.0 out of 5 stars Some highlights, some low budget duds November 21, 2000
By A Customer
The Eurythmics clearly weren't given a big budget for every video, but that isn't a crime in itself, given how today's artists make million dollar videos for singles that don't even do that well (a certain Missy Elliott video comes to mind...).
Two themes that run through these videos fascinate me. One is how Annie Lennox plays up her androgynous looks. In videos like Who's That Girl, Love Is A Stranger, and I Need A Man, she looks like a total drag queen. She even acts like one!
Another intriguing theme is the feminist vibe of some of the videos. The most obvious example is I Love To (Listen To Beethoven). Here, she plays the bored housewife from hell who goes mad, and escapes. It's my favorite video of them all. Another feminist video is, of course, Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves, a duet with the legendary Aretha Franklin.
Not all of the videos are good, neither from a cinematic nor a content standpoint. In fact, the videos for some of the otherwise stellar songs like Here Comes The Rain Again really do them a disservice. But these are balanced by some great videos, like Don't Ask Me Why, which features a beautiful use of lighting.
I also like the video for Sexcrime, by the way...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, Good February 29, 2000
By A Customer
This is a great video, has 21 of their videos on it. I find the transition bits between the videos to be a tad annoying, but not enough to detract from the overall excellence of the video. And yes, it does have the song 'you have placed a chill in my heart' on it.
