Song of the Day, November 28: Better To Have Lost In Love by Eurythmics

EurythmicsLostToday’s song is Better to Have Lost In Love (Than Never to Have Loved At All) by Eurythmics. It closes out their 1985 masterpiece Be Yourself Tonight. Lushly orchestrated, it’s a sad look at the end of love with a determination to find the silver lining. Annie Lennox is in fine voice, grimly recalling what went wrong, aching through her current pain, and soaring through the title line with elegant grace.

Enjoy this beautiful song today.
