The hacked appliances of Device Orchestra have reached the promised land with a performance of the song that the band was destined for, the synth-heavy Eurythmics classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart may have been replaced by electric toothbrushes, but who are we to disagree?
The Eurythmics track Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) is one of the best and most memorable songs of the 1980s. While nobody can pull off vocals quite like Annie Lennox, we’re still mighty impressed by Patty Gurdy’s cover version which replaces Dave Stewart’s synth sounds with the medieval drone of a hurdy-gurdy.
A group of five talented musicians from the Colorado Symphony got together for a wonderful outdoor performance of the Eurythmics classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). While we still can’t get out to see orchestras perform in person, please remember to support your local musicians.
Pomplamoose presents another fantastic arrangement as lead singer Nataly Dawn is joined by Sarah Dugas for this mashup that combines The Eurythmics Sweet Dreams and The White Stripes Seven Nation Army. Between the funky rhythms and soulful vocals, it’ll have you dancing at your desk for sure.
The Floppotron plays a song which feels like it was tailor-made to be performed on old floppy and hard disk drives – Eurythmics’ 1981 classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). The synth sounds just work perfectly on the computer hardware, and who are we to disagree?
A grand, orchestral cover of Eurtyhmics’ 1983 classic, performed by the Norwegian Radio Orchestra. The icing on the cake are Hilde Marie Kjersem’s (aka Marie Munroe) flawless vocals, which are just as spectacular as Annie Lennox’s originals. Seriously, this woman can sing.
