Music Video Monday: Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

Introduction

I’ve debated starting this theme for a few weeks before starting last week, and I ultimately decided I would as it would encourage me to looks for options that actually fit what I’m aiming for. If one pays too much attention to Top 40 type music you tend to see a dearth of creativity in the music video form. The music video is spawned from short films and can be as creative if not more so than their predecessor. Far too often it does just become singing heads. I want to try and buck that trend and find ones both new and old that do something somewhat outside the box, at the very least have some sort of visual narrative. Here we go.

Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

Based on some recommendations I will have some more newer vintage videos coming. It would be far too easy to only cherry-pick these selections from when the medium was new. This one came to mind again recently. It’s as odd and off-center as it is memorable and it accompanies a great song. Enjoy the orange hair and the cow in the field!
