Eurythmics‘ Annie Lennox says she can’t believe the British pop duo’s 1983 hit, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”, has turned 40.
“It’s almost impossible to believe that ‘Sweet Dreams are Made of This’ was released forty years ago,” she wrote on Instagram.
Lennox shared clips from the music video to mark the song’s milestone anniversary.
“It has continued to travel the world and the seven seas ever since, which is a wonderful and miraculous story all to itself! Songs are like ships. They have their own particular voyages and destinations.. Once they’ve been launched, there’s no turning back. You just have to follow the journey,” added the Scottish singer and songwriter.
The title song from Eurythmics’ second album, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” topped the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart in September 1983, and was ranked second on the U.K. singles chart.
Lennox and her band mate Dave Stewart released a string of hit singles and albums before splitting up in 1990.
Stewart, who produced Eurythmics’ music, also reflected on the song’s 40h anniversary with a post on Instagram.
