One of the greatest tragedies of the world, besides suspending the production of OK Soda, is that I am not a rock star.
The fact that I have zero musical talent is neither here nor there. And trust me, I TRIED. I took trumpet and piano lessons from fourth to tenth grade and I was basically asked not to continue. Whoops!
Naturally, then, I have utmost respect for those women who rock. And one of the baddest bitches in history is Annie Lennox. But goddamn did she scare back in 1983 when she and fellow Eurythmic David Stewart released the video for their smash hit “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This.)”
We didn’t have cable at the time, but whenever we visited my grandparents in Rhode Island I would sneak down to the basement to watch MTV. Between fun videos like “Sledgehammer” and “Hey Mickey,” “Sweet Dreams” would invade the tv and give me nightmares! Eek!
Now, years later, I worship Annie Lennox and am not even scared to watch that video anymore. To prove it, I’ve posted it down below. Enjoy!
