«Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)» (or simply «Sweet Dreams«) is a song written and performed by the British pop music duo Eurythmics (Annie Lennox andDavid A. Stewart). It was released as a single in early 1983, the title track of their album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), one of their biggest hits, and the song which provided the group with their breakthrough into commercial success. Its striking music video helped to propel the song to #2 on the UK singles chart and to their only #1 ranking on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, on 3 September 1983, after The Police‘s «Every Breath You Take» had held it off at #2 for four consecutive weeks in August. It was the fourth and final single released from the Sweet Dreams album in the UK and the first ever single to be released by Eurythmics in the United States.
