The Tourists, Annie Lennox, 2 Songs

Sweet Dreams are made of these
Who am I to disagree?

I think Annie Lennox was even sweeter when she was with the band Before Eurithmics - The Tourists!

THE TOURISTS - Deadly Kiss - Live from 1979!

Here's a cool rock tune, with aggressive guitars, a great beat, a powerful guitar break, and Annie on vocals looking slightly possessed. Is it Garage Rock? Not really. It is some combo of Punk, New Wave, Rock, Goth, Metal, with the hint of Garage Punk vibes. If you have never seen this video, you're in for a treat!

I Only Wanna Be With You!

Yes, this is a cover of the Dusty Springfield mega hit from the 60s. The Tourists add a great guitar part to the same melody. Annie sounds very similar to Dusty on this one. It also has a cool guitar break with some drum smacks that became even more popular in the 80s. You gotta listen! And dance!

I might as well drop the original by Dusty Springfield in here, for comparison. You can see just how faithful Annie was to Dusty's original!

I just wanna be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together honey I don't care
'cause you started something and can't you see
that ever since we met you had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only wanna be with YOU!!!
