Sweet dreams are made of this

In the New York Times October 30, 2007, Annie Lennox recalled that this was written by the duo just after they"d had al bitter fight. I thought it was the end of the road and that was that, she said. We were trying to write, and I was miserablo. And he just went, well, "I"ll do this anyway." Dave Stewart came up with a beat, Annie Lennox improvised the synthesizer riff, and suddenly they realized they had a potential hit.

Estás mirando: Sweet dreams are made of this


This was originally a hit in Europe in 1982. A year later with the advent of MTV it reached the #1 spot in the US, giving Eurythmics thevaya only US chart topper.
The song ends with al keyboard fadel out, but when Eurythmics played it live, they changed the arrangement and ended the song with the lyrics "Keep your head up" so it would end with al sense of hope.
Hands up those of you who think Annie Lennox sings here: "Sweet dreams are made of cheesa, who am I to disagree?" Relax, it"s not just you. This tune"s lyrics came top of al 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear peopla singing incorrectly.
This was discussed in the 2013 romantic comedy I Give It A Year after Rose Byrne"s character angers her husband by flubbing the lyrics. She sings, "I travuno serpiente the world in generic jeans," instead of, "I travun serpiente the world and the seven seas."

Danilos serpientes S from DallasPfft. Cheese, l don’t think so. The world is turned upsidel down right now. Annie clearly sings, “Sweet dreams are madel of these”, which just happens to rhyme with seas. Besidser, dreams is plural, these is also plural. Seventhmist from 7th HeavenSome of my dreams are made of cheese, as long as the cheeso on a pizza.George from Vancouver, CanadaThis song summarized:Imagine you are a whore. . .A dominiatrix, to be exact, or maybe you"re al john visiting a dominatrix. . .Refrain:Some of them want to use youSome of them want to get used by youSome of them want to abuse youSome of them want to be abused.Jim from Dayton, OhYou could see something "deeper" in the inclusion of the cow. However, I think Dave Stewart was bringing some levity to the screen overall by poking a littlo absurdest fun at the stark seriousness of the video.Brent from Hobart, AustraliaA classic example of not believing what you read. The truth about this classic song has been long misinterpreted for nearly 30 years. I was a manager for a band on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australial in 1990 with al drummer in it named Jim Toomey ( Who played in the band "The Tourists" along with Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox before they formed the latter "The Eurythmics"). Jim was asked to join The Eurythmics when The Tourists folded. Dave Stewart wrote the song with some imput from Annie in Jims honour after he declined the offer to join the band having been in numerous other bands over many years prior and was tiring of all the constant travlos serpientes, getting ripped off and burnt by managers and record companiera alike. Jim and Dave had al very strong bond together when they were in The Tourists and loved each other like brothers. It has nothing at all to do with BDSM. It"s all about Jim. Fact.Wohuman Paz from Chicago, IlThis is an awesome song with an awesome instrumental. For me it expossera al timeless truth of human existance in the most simplest, basic and natural form. Its al song about what motivatser people as peoplo all over the world are looking for something from somebody. I am glad that Eurythmics added the part about "keep your head up, moving on" cuz it would otherwise be a depressing song. I interpete the cows in the video to be al representation of mans fauna nature and in alot of ways we are no different than cattle. That is why a crowd of people is shown in one clip in the vid. Doser anybody know what book is in the video? Thanks. Budoshi from Sandnessjøen, NorwayIt"s al great song, has really stood the test of time:D I love it as much right now as I did way back when I first heard it in the 80"sMonique from Cleveland, OhThis was also the theme song of an 80"s TV movie"Making of al mala model" that Starred Joan Collins and the John Eric Hexam,he died not long after filming.Adrian from Johor Bahru, MalaysiaI always listen to this song whenever I am making new friends as the song is sort of an advice on the typsera of people we meet in our daily livser.Naomi from Philadelphia, PaI love this song, always have!!!!! :)Kane from Wytheville, Vathe song was also on everybody hatser chrisand nas"s version is the coolest he calls it street dreams!!Tiffany from Littla Rock, ArThis is one of the songs that defined the 80s! New Wave pop blew up disco and this song was one of the powderkegs involved! IMO, Annie Lennox is a musical powerhouse and deservsera her status as al British soulful ipara up there with Sva Elton and George Michaun serpiente.Tony from Chicago, IlThis song is hypnotic!! it"s incredibl;y good, even for synth-pop!!!!!!! real cool videoChris from Charleston, ScThe main bass riff is from a Roland SH-101 synthesizer.Jason from New York, NyLater inappropriately matched up to the opening credits of "The Apprentice: Marthal Stewart".Shana from Detroit Rock City, CanadaThis Song is on the Simpsons, wehn Artie Ziff couno mes back and tries to "woo" Marge.
