The Eurythmics were huge in the ’80s. Dave Stewart said that performing with Annie Lennox is “a rollercoaster,” mostly because of the former couple’s relationship.
Stewart recently told Metro’s “Sixty Second” program, “It’s a rollercoaster because of the emotional connection between Annie and myself.” He added, “A lot of the songs we’ve written together are about us being together.”
He also thought they did things backward, saying, “Usually a couple are in a band together, the band gets successful and then they break up.” How did it go for Dave and Annie? “We were a couple and in a band but didn’t write any of the songs for it. Then we decided not to be together, formed Eurythmics, and wrote about 140 songs about it.”
Annie Lennox has a number of causes she’s very passionate about. She once commented on using her fame to boost those causes:
"I want to use whatever I can to speak for women's rights and children's rights as well as being a creative artist. I consider myself to be very privileged, because I have had a lifetime of music and I will, hopefully, continue to have the choice to be able to do whatever I like in a positive, contributive way."
