Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

The title track to the British New Wave duo’s second album is so fiercely iconic, it threatens to render its other nine tracks redundant. But it’d be criminal to overlook the record that transformed Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart from former post-punks to global phenomenon: Lennox excels at white soul and stentorian come-ons laced with queer intrigue—a predatory, dangerous vibe powered by Stewart’s analog synths and then-trailblazing drum machines. One stunning outlier is “Jennifer,” a glacial song of eerie devotion that anticipated dream pop.
