The Tourists (1977 - 1980 were a moderately successful British pop band but are better known for two of their members ( Annie Lennox & David A During this time, they were also romantic partners. This band achieved modest commercial success, but the experience was reportedly an unhappy one. Personal and musical tensions existed within the group, whose main songwriter was Pete Coombes, the band often received very negative critical press in the UK, and there were legal wranglings with the band's management, publishers and record labels. A songwriter is someone who writes the Lyrics to songs the Musical composition (chords or Melody to songs or both Lennox and Stewart felt the fixed band line-up was not a good vehicle to explore their experimental creative leanings.
Lennox and Stewart decided their next project should be much more flexible and free from artistic compromise. They were interested in creating 'pop music', but wanted freedom to experiment with electronics and the avant-garde as well. Calling themselves "Eurythmics" after a dance technique (Eurythmy; see also Eurhythmics) Lennox had encountered as a child at her school, they decided to keep themselves as the only permanent members and songwriters, and involve others in the collaboration as they saw fit "on the basis of mutual compatibility and availability". Eurythmy is an expressive movement art originated by Rudolf Steiner in conjunction with Marie von Sivers in the early 20th century Eurhythmics (also Rhythmic Gymnastics, Rhythmics) is an approach to music education that was devised by Emile Jaques-Dalcroze. RCA Records decided to retain the pair from their Tourists recording contract. RCA Records (originally The Victor Talking Machine Company, then RCA Victor is one of the flagship labels of Sony Music Entertainment. Wanting to concentrate on their musical relationship, Lennox and Stewart decided to discontinue their romantic liaison in 1980 (see 1980 in music). Events January January 1 - The year starts off with a strong Disco backlash which causes the majority of musicians to abandon the use of real instruments
Their first album saw them continue to work in Cologne with the legendary Conny Plank (who had produced the later Tourists sessions). Konrad "Conny" Plank (frequently spelled Planck) ( May 3, 1940 in Germany – December 18, 1987 in Cologne This resulted in the album In the Garden, released October 1981), including contributions from Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit of Can, drummer Clem Burke of Blondie, Robert Görl of Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, and flautist Tim Wheater.

Two singles from the album also flopped, though "Never Gonna Cry Again" made the UK charts. Lennox and Stewart then put their new Eurythmics mode of operation into action by touring the record as a duo, accompanied by backing tracks and electronics, carted around the country themselves in a horse-box.
Stewart and Lennox retreated to Chalk Farm in London, and used a bank loan to set up a tiny 8-track studio above a picture framing factory, giving them freedom to record without having to pay expensive studio fees. Chalk Farm is an area of the Borough of Camden in north London, England. They began to employ much more electronics in their music, collaborating with Raynard Faulkner and Adam Williams. They continued to record many tracks and play live using various line-up permutations. However, the three singles RCA released for them that year ("This is the House," "The Walk," and "Love Is a Stranger") all flopped on initial release in the UK. " Love Is a Stranger " is Eurythmics ' fifth single and like its predecessors was initially a commercial flop although it later became a worldwide hit when it The band's state of affairs was becoming critical — although their mode of operation had given them the creative freedom they desired, commercial success was still eluding them, and the responsibility of running so many of their affairs personally (down to roadying their own equipment) was exhausting. Apparently Lennox suffered at least one nervous breakdown during this period, while Stewart was hospitalized with a collapsed lung. Mental breakdown (also known as nervous breakdown or snapping) is a non-medical term used to describe a sudden acute attack of Mental illness such as
Eurythmics' commercial breakthrough came with Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) (1983 in music), whose hit single of the same name featured a dark, powerfully sequenced synth bass line and a striking video that introduced the orange crew cut Lennox sported to fame. Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This is the second album by British Synth pop duo Eurythmics.

Rolling Stone is a United States -based Magazine devoted to Music, Politics, and Popular culture that is published Stewart recently revealed that the famous synth bass line in the song was discovered by accident when he inadvertently played a track backwards. "Love Is A Stranger" was re-released and became a hit in its own right. The "Love Is A Stranger" video saw Lennox in many different character guises, which she later became known for in subsequent videos ("Beethoven" and "The King & Queen of America" among them). The album's working title was Invisible Hands (as was a track left off the album), inspiring the name of UK indie label Invisible Hands Music - known for releasing music by Hugh Cornwell, Mick Karn and Hazel O'Connor.

Lennox and Stewart reunited in 1987 (see 1987 in music) for the album, Savage. See also Musical groups established in 1987 Record labels established in 1987 Events Savage is the seventh Album by Pop music duo Eurythmics, released in 1987 (see 1987 in music) This saw a fairly radical change within the group's sound, being based mainly around drum loops, with synth and guitar parts fairly low in the mix (Lennox would later say that where Revenge was more of a Stewart album in sound, Savage was more of a Lennox one). Lyrically the songs showed an even darker, more obsessive side to Lennox's writing. The entire record was also released as a video album, directed by Sophie Müller, with a film for each song. Sophie Muller (born 31 January 1962) is a British Music video director. These largely followed Lennox's character of a frustrated housewife-turned-vamp (as exemplified in the bizarre "Beethoven (I Love to Listen to)", a UK hit and fan favourite). " Beethoven (I Love to Listen to " is a song recorded by British Pop music duo Eurythmics, released as the first single in the UK from the Savage The brazen, sexually charged rocker "I Need a Man" remains a Eurythmics staple, as does the delicate "You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart". " I Need a Man " is a song recorded by British Pop music duo Eurythmics. " You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart " is a song recorded by British pop duo Eurythmics. "Shame" reads as an indictment of the side of pop culture that had made the duo famous, and its theme would be reprised on the later-day Eurythmics single "17 Again" when Lennox sang "Sweet Dreams are made of anything that gets you in the scene".
Much less commercial than the two previous albums, Savage was mostly ignored in the U. S. , although rock radio in more progressive markets supported "I Need a Man", and sales in the UK were fair. " I Need a Man " is a song recorded by British Pop music duo Eurythmics.
In 1989, Eurythmics released the solid We Too Are One, a UK number one hit that did rather poorly in the United States, although "Don't Ask Me Why" grazed the Billboard top 40. We Too Are One is the eighth Album by Pop music duo Eurythmics, released in 1989. " Don't Ask Me Why " is a song recorded by Pop music duo Eurythmics. Overall the album performed better in the U. S. than Savage had, indicating that America wasn't ready to dismiss Eurythmics. Other singles from the set include "Revival", "The King and Queen of America", "Angel" (where Lennox eulogized the loss of a much-wanted child and the death of her own father) and "(My My) Baby's Gonna Cry", the latter of which featured Stewart in his first prominent vocal role with Lennox. " Revival " is a song recorded by British Pop music duo Eurythmics. " The King and Queen of America " is a song recorded by Pop music duo Eurythmics. " Angel " is a song recorded by Pop music duo Eurythmics.
After strenuous years of touring and recording (Eurythmics released eight albums — not including the remix "Touch Dance" — in eight years), Lennox needed a break and took time off to have a baby and to consider a new direction after Eurythmics. Years of being constantly together had created a rift in the relationship between the duo; the two had virtually no communication with each other from 1990 to 1998. In 1991, Eurythmics' Greatest Hits collection was released, entering the UK album chart at #1 and becoming a massive seller.
