While in a cab last Saturday, a friend asked everyone to name one song in life they’d never gotten sick of. Without missing a beat, the driver chose “Sweet Dreams.” Although I don’t necessarily agree that I’d NEVER get sick of the Eurythmics’ 1983 breakthrough, it does have a certain timeless quality — the now-classic synth breakdown, the stunningly genderless vocal. And of course, that androgyny was played to the hilt in the video, which finds Annie Lennox and David Stewart bringing sharp suits and unnerving intensity to boardrooms and cow pastures.

As you may recall, this was later covered by Marilyn Manson in 1995 — a trudging, bilious version that, unlike the original, does not bear repeating.
