Eurythmics - "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"
"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)." is the synth-pop duo's biggest and most recognisable hit. Eurythmics. You could say it's their iconic song that gained them international fame and made Annie Lennox and David Stewart famous. The Eurythmics are well known to music lovers in their own right, but it was this mega-successful track that made them 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 melody that played an important role Annie Lennox - a charismatic vocalist whose singing style would leave few people indifferent. The result was a worldwide hit that reached number 2 in the UK charts and topped the US Billboard 100 later in 1983. Colourful music video has racked up a whopping 730 million views on YouTube. This proves once again that "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" is an unforgotten classic of the genre. - is an unforgotten classic of the genre.
Don Gibson - "Sweet Dreams (of You)."
A very interesting classic on our list. The original version is by Don Gibsonwho wrote and recorded "Sweet Dreams (of You)" in 1955. That version reached the top ten on Billboard's country chart, and as the '60s progressed, the country music superstar repeated the success with an updated single. The ballad became a standard, and inspired many to come up with their own interpretations.
It was his cover of "Sweet Dreams (of You)" that earned the country singer his first major fame Faron Young. His version, by the way, reached number two on the charts.
Alas, but with the version Patsy Cline is linked by a tragic story. The singer planned to include a cover of "Sweet Dreams (of You)" on her album Faded Love, which was due for release at the end of March 1963, but was never released. Cline died in a plane crash on his way home from a charity event in Kansas City.
However, Patsy's version saw the light of day that same year, 1963, and became a big hit. Posthumous and the last in the singer's history....
Beyoncé - "Sweet Dreams"
A smash hit of the 2000s from the hottie. Beyoncé! This light dance pop song quickly won over music lovers from all over the world and was a big breakthrough for the singer, who at the time was desperately trying to get rid of the name "Destiny's Child" in favour of "solo star Beyoncé".
Remarkably, the song was originally planned to be called "Beautiful Nightmare". And it's a very good thing that didn't happen. Otherwise, how would she have made our list today?
La Bouche - "Sweet Dreams"
But if there's any hit song "Sweet Dreams" more delightful and "clingy" than Beyoncé's track, it's definitely a schlager La Bouche. Their "Sweet Dreams" is hard not to recognise: a legendary 90s dance classic that once rumbled out of every iron.
A terrific track with a definite atmosphere and spark. It's probably, without exaggeration. 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. Well, what else would we expect from a shock rocker Marilyn Manson?
The composition was released in 1995 as part of the album "Smells Like Children". Judging by the number of views of the music video on YouTube, many people willingly revisit "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" to this day.
Emily Browning, "Sweet Dreams."
To round off the list we decided to finish with a light track from Emily Browning 2011.
