The Eurythmics became one of the most successful duos of the 1980’s, with hits like “Here Comes the Rain Again” and “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This.)” They began in their earliest incarnations as the Tourists, formed in the late 1970’s. They existed as the Tourists for only two years, but released three albums, The Tourists, Reality Effect, and Luminous Basement, and a series of singles that were all reasonably successful in England. With help from Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) was very successful. Upon its release in 1983, the title track rocketed to number one on the charts in America. The Eurythmics had finally crossed the ocean to international success. A few years afterAnnie Lennox and Dave Stewart began pursuing other endeavors. Steward produced a number of other artists, including Daryl Hall and Mick Jagger, and Annie Lennox made her big screen debut in Revolution. They came back together to release Savage in 1987, and again later with We Too Are One, but after their Greatest Hits release in 1991, both Lennox and Stewart seemed solid in their own solo careers and the Eurythmics quietly faded into the background for the rest of the decade.
