1984 (For the Love of Big Brother)

Eurythmics - CD - Rating: 9/10

Although technically speaking this is a soundtrack, I don’t think any of these songs made it into the film 1984. That’s fine. The dance floor beats don’t really fit the tone of a dark and cruel dystopian future. Nevertheless, I have always really liked this CD (with the exception of the overly long “Julia”). Along with the attempts at police-state pop music, there is a nice mix of instrumentals where Lennox’s voice is just there for atmospheric effect. Not quite Edda Dell’Orso, but I’ll take what I can.
