"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," provided the group Eurythmics with their breakthrough into commercial success. Eurythmics brought a soul music twist to the electronic sound, which proved popular with broader audiences. Sonic markers in this song are the synthesiser, bass, guitar, and E-drums. Eurythmics had a dodgy, rock past and they confidently leaped into a new age of electronics and synthesizers, spearheading a 1980s revolution with a ground-breaking record that would change the face of music.
