Eurythmics were a British pop duo consisting of members Annie Lennox, a Scot, and Dave Stewart, a Brit. Stewart and Lennox were both previously in The Tourists.
The duo released their first studio album, In the Garden, in 1981 to little success, but went on to achieve global acclaim when their second album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), was released in 1983. The title track became a worldwide hit which topped the charts in various countries including the US.
The duo went on to release a string of hit singles and albums before they split up in 1990. By this time, Stewart was a sought-after record producer, while Lennox began a solo recording career in 1992.
