Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) is the second studio album by the Eurythmics, originally released by RCA Records on 4 January 1983. The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. With this album, Eurythmics transformed their sound and pushed themselves to their artistic and creative limit and came up golden.
The synthesizers were brought to the forefront along with Annie Lennox's confident vocals. In turn, she became a bona fide star and Eurythmics became not only a household name, but the most definitive synth pop band. Each side starts with a classic single that became ubiquitous on radio - Love Is a Stranger and the title track. Infinitely catchy and appealing, those two songs broke Eurythmics to the world scene.
