Another classic 80s video, this single was the title track from Eurythmics second album and brought the duo their breakthrough into commercial success in early 1983. The song peaked at No.2 in the UK and made No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S.
Sweet Dreams was the fourth single to be released from the album in the UK, but was the first ever single to be released in the U.S. by Eurythmics, and so to reach No.1 was an amazing achievement.
Released in January 1983, the Sweet Dreams album featured four tracks that were released as singles; This Is The House (which failed to chart), The Walk (failed to chart), Love Is A Stranger (#23 U.S., #6 UK, #15 Canada, #17 Australia and a hit in numerous other countries) and finally, the title track.
Eurythmics went on to achieve success with another five studio albums during the 80s, and have released 30 singles since 1981, of which 24 reached the UK Top 40. In the U.S. the duo had ten Top 40 singles.
