Wiki

"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" (or simply "Sweet Dreams") is a song by the British pop music duo Eurythmics. It was released as a single in early 1983, and was the title track of their album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). It is notable for being the song which provided the group with their breakthrough into commercial success and one of their biggest hits. Its striking music video helped to propel the song to number two on the UK singles chart, and number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It was the fourth single released from the Sweet Dreams album in the UK and the first ever single to be released by Eurythmics in the United States.

"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" is arguably Eurythmics' signature song and it is their only chart-topper in the U.S. Following its success, their previous single, "Love Is a Stranger", was re-released and also became a worldwide hit. On Rolling Stone's The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time issue in 2003, "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" was ranked number 356 (the group's only song on the list).[3] Eurythmics have regularly performed the song in all their live sets since 1982, and it is often performed by Lennox on her solo tours.

In 1991, the song was remixed and reissued to promote Eurythmics' Greatest Hits album. It re-charted in the UK, reaching number 48, and was also a moderate hit in dance clubs. Another remix by Steve Angello was released in France in 2006, along with the track "I've Got a Life" (peaking at number ten).
