Song of the Day, November 2: Who’s That Girl? by Eurythmics

EurythmicsWhoGirlToday’s song helped cement the pioneering reputation of an 80s chart powerhouse. Eurythmics broke big with their second album, Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), and its #1 smash title track. The next album, Touch, featured an overall harder sound with some interesting experiments and another handful of pop treats.

Who’s That Girl? features a cool vocal from Annie Lennox over a wash of synths. A simple tale of suspicion, it’s a well-crafted song anchored by the disarming delivery. It also featured a smart video, featuring Lennox singing in a club while David A. Stewart parades a series of women (mostly cast from a number of successful British bands) in front of her. A second Lennox character, a man reminiscent of a young Elvis, appears at the end of the clip, escorting the blonde-wigged singer out of the club and away from her cheating boyfriend.

It’s a fun video, nicely constructed and perfectly suited to the song. Enjoy this great 80s hit today.
