This, dear reader, is Annie Lennox. Now a solo artist, she was once a member of ’80s duo The Eurythmics. She has won four Grammys, eight BRIT awards, a Golden Globe, and an Oscar.
She’s responsible for classics such as “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” and “Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves,” but also underrated jams such as, “Walking On Broken Glass,” “Love Is a Stranger,” “Into the West,” “Why,” “No More I Love You’s,” and countless others. Go listen to her music and redeem yourself.
