Eurythmics: Be Yourself Tonight
Although this album is full of hits I have only transferred one song to my MP3 player.
The album features songs such as There Must Be An Angel, Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves and Would I Lie To You.
Ok super, but instead I chose the lesser known It's Alright (Baby's Coming Back) because it has always been one of my favourite Eurythmic songs.
I've always been a B'side person.
First big hit single from an album would get my attention, but it's usually the second release of an album and an artist that I will really love.
Or the third or the fourth.
A lesser known song that is always better than the smash hit, the blockbuster.
For example, when I first heard Sweet Dreams I was intrigued. But the song I really loved from Eurythmics' first album was Love Is A Stranger. I find it undoubtedly superior.
And so with this album, although Annie will always sing Sisters Are Doing It blah blah blah in concerts, I can just fly when I hear the opening notes of It's Alright.
It's such a beautiful song and it's very optimistic, hopeful and cathartic.
Annie's voice is just brilliant.
LISTEN TO IT: When your baby's coming back of course. Just pump up the volume and feel the happiness!!!
