Eurythmics - "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"
"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" is the synth-pop duo's biggest and most recognizable hit Eurythmics. You could say it's their iconic song that gained international fame and brought Annie Lennox and David Stewart fame. The Eurythmics are well known to music lovers in their own right, but it was thanks to this mega-successful track that they acquired a household name...
In many ways, the song won the hearts of listeners due to the melody, which is hard to get out of your head. But it was the Annie Lennox - a charismatic vocalist whose manner of singing would leave few people indifferent. The result was a worldwide hit that hit #2 on the UK charts and topped the Billboard 100 US later that year in 1983. Colorful music video has had a whopping 730 million views on YouTube. This proves once again that "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" - is not a forgotten classic of the genre.
Don Gibson - "Sweet Dreams (of You)"
A very interesting classic on our list. The original version belongs to Don Gibsonwho wrote and recorded "Sweet Dreams (of You)" 1955. That version reached the top ten of the Billboard country chart, and as the '60s hit, the country music superstar repeated the success with an updated single. The ballad became a standard, and inspired many to make their own interpretations.
It was his cover of "Sweet Dreams (of You)" that gave the country singer his first big break. Fearon Young. His version, by the way, reached number two in the charts.
Alas, with the version Patsy Kline is a tragic story. The singer had planned to include a cover of "Sweet Dreams (of You)" on her album Faded Love, which was to be released in late March 1963, but never did. Cline died in a plane crash on his return home from a charity event in Kansas City...
Nevertheless, Patsy's version saw the light of day that same year, 1963, and became a big hit. Posthumous and the last in the history of the singer...
Beyoncé - "Sweet Dreams"
A resounding hit of the 2000s from a hottie Beyonce! This light dance-pop composition quickly conquered music lovers from all over the world and became a big breakthrough for the performer, who at that time was desperately trying to get rid of the name "lead singer of Destiny's Child" in favor of "solo star Beyonce".
Remarkably, the song was originally planned to be called "Beautiful Nightmare.". And it's a good thing that it didn't. How else would she have made our list today?
La Bouche - "Sweet Dreams"
But if there's any hit "Sweet Dreams" more delightful and "sticky" than Beyoncé's track, it's definitely a hit. La Bouche. It's hard not to recognize their Sweet Dreams: the legendary '90s dance classic that was rumbling out of every iron in its day.
A terrific track with a certain atmosphere and spark. Perhaps, without exaggeration, it is One of the best songs of the '90s. Powerful vocals. Melanie Thornton and the rhythmic music, as if taking you somewhere in the distance, made this song flawless...
Marilyn Manson - "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"
And these are the most "roaring" and terrifying Sweet Dreams in our selection. What else would we expect from a shock rocker, though? Marilyn Manson?
The composition was released in 1995 as part of the album "Smells Like Children". Judging by the number of views of the clip on YouTube, many eagerly return to "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" to this day.
