Artist Countdown: Eurythmics & Annie Lennox Top 40 Hits 6pm ET

eurythmicsEurythmics were a British music duo consisting of members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, now disbanded but known to reunite from time to time.

Stewart and Lennox were both previously in the band The Tourists (originally known as The Catch), who split in 1980 and Eurythmics were formed that year. The duo released their first album, In the Garden, in 1981 to little fanfare, but went on to achieve global success with their second album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), released in 1983. The title track was a worldwide hit, topping the chart in various countries including the US. The duo went on to release a string of hit singles and albums before they split in 1990. By this time, Stewart had already embarked on a parallel music career and was also a sought-after record producer, while Lennox began a solo recording career in 1992 with her debut album Diva. After almost a decade apart, Eurythmics reformed in the late 1990s to record their ninth album, Peace which was released in late 1999. They reunited again in 2005 to release the single “I’ve Got a Life”, as part of a new Eurythmics compilation album, Ultimate Collection.

The duo have won several awards, including an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist in 1984, the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1987, the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 1999, and in 2005, were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. Eurythmics have sold an estimated 75 million records worldwide.

After achieving minor success in the late 1970s as part of the New Wave band The Tourists, she and fellow musician David A. Stewart went on to achieve major international success in the 1980s as Eurythmics. Lennox is the most recognised female artist at the Brit Awards, winning a total of eight awards. She has also been named the “Brits Champion of Champions”.

In 2012, Lennox was listed at number 22 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music. She has earned the distinction of “most successful female British artist in UK music history” due to her commercial success since the early 1980s. Including her work within Eurythmics, Lennox has sold over 80 million records worldwide. (Source: Wikipedia)
