The title track became particularly popular and remains one of Eurythmics’ most recognisable songs. Its music video, popular on MTV in the United States, is memorable for Annie Lennox‘s gender-bending imagery. In the wake of this success, the single ‘Love Is a Stranger’, previously a flop, was re-released and became a hit as well. It too was accompanied by a striking video that featured Lennox dressed both as a man and a woman. …”
