Eurythmics - Sexcrime (1984)

Sexcrime (1984) utilised sample snippets of Annie Lennox's vocals to produce a stuttering effect, which featured on many 80s singles, such as "Nineteen" by Paul Hardcastle. Dave Stewart's voice was also put through a vocoder for the "1984" vocal. Of course, back in the eighties this was an exciting and futuristic sound, although people were still getting excited when Cher used a vocoder in her 90's hit Believe.

This was the first single to be released from the album, 1984 For The Love of Big Brother, and was the soundtrack to the film Nineteen Eighty-Four, an adaptation of the George Orwell novel.
