Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

One of the earliest things that we learned about Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart was that the duo had style. In their first few MTV videos, including "Sweet Dreams" and "Love Is a Stranger," they were just as notable for their androgynous suits and rubber utility coverall, as they were for their ice box synthetic dance beats. But as Eurythmics continued to churn out one hit after another, something else became refreshingly apparent: In the midst of all of the impersonal drum machines and frozen electronics, Lennox displayed both rhythm and soul. With a voice powerful enough to hold its own against genre queen Aretha Franklin ("Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves"), Lennox added another dimension to the haunting moodiness of "Who's That Girl" and "Here Comes the Rain Again." Changing personas and musical stylings with every release, Eurythmics blasted out horn-infused rockers ("Would I Lie to You"), country-fied twangers ("Thorn in My Side"), and melodic brilliance ("When Tomorrow Comes"). Greatest Hits captures the band's most inspired moments and justifies all of the original fuss. --Steve Gdula

3.0 out of 5 stars limited February 18, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although this collection does contain their major US hits, it does not necessarily contain all of Eurythmics' "greatest" hits. Evergreens from 80s pop such as "Sweet Dreams" (the extended mix is included here), "Here Comes The Rain Again", and "There Must Be Angel" are on this collection among others. However, replacing key singles that experimented with their current sound ("Right By Your Side" and "Sexcrime") are ommitted in favor of bland selection from their We Too Are One album--their least winning. If it's a starting point you're looking for to explore the superb and relevant history of this group, then I suggest purchasing each of their albums chronologically. Beginning with this collection merely suggests that this was a group who had some brilliant singles at first before becoming a bit less interesting--which is certainly not the case. David Stewart and Annie Lennox were two musicians who were able to allow technology to enhance their music rather than envelop it. From their first album album (In the Garden) to their latest you will never hear the novelty of machines win over genuine artistry. You will hear many points of timeless intrigue on every one of their releases, including (albiet less) on We Too Are One. By The way, the import pressing of this Greatest Hits does contain an expanded selection (complete with the two tracks that I mentioned were ommitted from the domestic pressing), however, I still highly recommend investing in their complete catalog. Intelligent and still innovative. Catchy and unforgettable without being gimmicky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Dreams (are made of this) August 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
If I had to name my favorite decade for music, it would have to be the '80s with all the new wave bands like Erasure, Depeche Mode, and the Eurythmics. Annie Lennox is definitely one of the greatest female vocalists I have ever heard. I was definitely offended when shock rocker Marilyn Manson massacred "Sweet Dreams (are made of this)". I absolutely loved Annie's androgynous look she had in her music videos like in "Sweet Dreams (are made of this)". Although I knew quite a few of the songs on this cd, there were quite a few songs that I wasn't really familiar like the guitar-driven "When Tomorrow Comes" which I immediately fell in love with, with both the melodies, guitar riffs, and the optimistic lyrics. "Thorn in My Side" is also another personal favorite track. That is one of those songs where I can't help but sing along to when I listen to the cd. I love the empowering lyrics of "Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves", a timeless classic. Pairing Annie with another legendary singer Aretha Franklin was a brilliant idea. And of course I can't mention other faves such as "Here Comes the Rain Again" and "Missionary Man". There was not one song on this cd I did not skip over. This cd is simply a great collection of songs that made the '80s so great.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a duo February 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
These 2 together as a group in the 80's rocked my world. These songs were hits and always being played on the radio or in my room, at my friends house. My favorites : Here comes the rain again, Would I lie to you, Angel, Whos that girl and There must be an angel. Another song that I loved so much was Walking on broken glass, which was not on this cd. The song that I never really cared for was Sweet Dreams.... something about it was spooky. Annie Lenox has the voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction to the Eurythmics April 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is a good introduction to the Eurythmics, but definitely not a collection of their best music. While most of the familiar songs are here, it doesn't contain some of their greatest songs, like Revenge and Never Gonna Cry Again from In The Garden, The Walk from Sweet Dreams, No Fear No Pain No Hate No Broken Hearts from Touch, Julia and For The Love of Big Brother from 1984, It's Alright (Baby's Coming Back) from Be Yourself Tonight, The Last Time from Revenge, Beethoven, You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart, Shame, and Savage from Savage, or (My My) Baby's Gonna Cry, Revival, and We Two are One from We Too Are One. This should have been a 2-cd set. And the new Eurythmics cd, Peace, has many great songs too. Of the songs that are here, Angel and Don't Ask Me Why are the best songs. All of the songs, however, are great, and if you can't afford to buy all of the Eurythmics' wonderful cds, this is a good choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eurythmics: Greatest Hits (1991) October 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
In 1991, just two years after their eighth album, We Too Are One, Eurythmics released their ninth album entitled simply, GREATEST HITS, their first greatest hits compilation, but their ninth album overall. This album features nothing, but the best from Eurythmics, although, it is missing at least one or two other greatest hits. This album proves how amazing Eurythmics were in the 80s, and they are giving us a second chance to relive our memories. I was only a newborn when they released BE YOURSELF TONIGHT, back in 1985, but when I was old enough to know what kind of music there was, I would remember hearing most of Eurythmics biggest hits on the radio. So, this album takes me down memory lane of when I was just a rambunctious little brat, listening to these classic 80s hits.

SWEET DREAMS (ARE MADE OF THIS)

Original version from the album Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) (1982). The album/single version, which can obviously be found on the album of the same name, is shorter than what is included here. The album/single version runs to 3 minutes & 30 seconds, while the extended version runs to 4 minutes & 50 seconds. If they included the album/single version or the extended version, it wouldn't have matter because this song is an undestroyable classic.

WHEN TOMORROW COMES

From the album Revenge (1986). This is one of their greatest songs. Just like the album it came from, this song features an even heavier 80s synthesizing Pop & Rock sound, with the addition of the beautifully arranged acoustic guitars.

HERE COMES THE RAIN AGAIN

Original version from the album Touch (1983). The album/single version, which was included on the album, "Touch", runs close to the extended version. The album/single version runs to 4 minutes & 54 seconds.
