Today we offer up a big Happy Christmas video birthday to the incomparable Scottish Diva Annie Lennox.
Here's Annie and Dave doing what made them famous! We'll start this live performance video feast with the Eurythmics doing one of the greatest songs ever written, their first hit, the amazing Sweet Dreams (are made of this)
Here's the original 1983 music video for Sweet Dreams
Here's an amazing live performance of Sweet Dreams
There Must Be An Angel ('live' on Parkinson)
One of my all time favorites! Here's Annie at the Prince's Trust 2006 Live at the Tower of London doing the haunting Walking On Broken Glass
Here's Under Pressure with David Bowie at the Freddie Mercury tribute.
Here's a treat! Sting and Annie Lennox doing We'll be Together
From her official website, Annie Lennox.com an interesting trip around a wonderfully designed website, a true "House of Personality." Each separate room has internal links at various images. Even though it's obviously still a work in progress, it's very well done! Just remember that if you're going to the library, we must turn the pages at the appropriate corner. Anything less just wouldn't do. And remembering to close the lid to the phonograph is another must. The bio is interesting, and if you're so inclined, enjoy tripping through the gowns, picture gallery, and all the other interesting imagery of the life of this amazing talent.
I couldn't find much tour news on her site, but for a ton of background news, links, performance info and other stuff, there's Annie-Lennox.com. He's obviously a big fan, assembled a top notch fan site that apparently crashed a while ago, and is still catching up on the latest.
Indeed, "sweet dreams are made of this..." Happy and Merry everything to you, Annie. The world's musical culture has been substantially improved by you being here.
May all have a great day, however you can wherever you are. War is over if we want it. Happy Christmas.
