"Sweet Dreams" was a deceptively catchy single from two former lovers. "The day Dave and I ended our romance, Eurythmics began," Annie Lennox told Rolling Stone. But the tense sessions for "Sweet Dreams" nearly ended their musical partnership. "I was curled up in the fetal position," Lennox said. "He programmed this rhythm. It sounded so good. In the end I couldn't resist it."
