Songs I Absolutely Adore By Artists I Generally Otherwise Don't Care For (An Occasional Series)

From 1992, please enjoy Annie Lennox and her insanely great "Walking on Broken Glass."

Lennox basically does nothing for me. I kinda vaguely liked her remake of "I Only Want to Be With You" as The Tourists in 1979, but other than that, her stardom stuff with Eurythmics and her subsequent solo hits put me to sleep.

The above, however, is an absolute masterpiece. It's like what would have happened had Mozart written and produced a great 60s soul/r&b record.

Have a great weekend, everybody!!!

Listen to Eurythmics- Savage. I am not a fan. I kind of hate "Sweet Dreams" and "Here Comes The Rain Again." But I do love Annie's solo stuff and I think "Savage" is a lost masterpiece.

If you do decide to listen to "Savage," have patience. The first song may turn you off. Let the record play.

Nice tune, though I prefer 'Thorn in my Side' or 'Love is a Stranger.'

I have been reading you since Stereo Review and am just flabbergasted that you prefer Miley Cyrus to La Lennox. I guess we'll just have to blame it on the vertigo.

Please check her out here:
Of course, this is such a great song that it brings out the best in anyone who attempts it.
