Songoftheday 3/31/13 - It's savage & it's cruel it shines like destruction, comes in like the flood & seems like religion...


Eurythmics - "Love Is A Stranger"
from the album Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) (1983)
Billboard Hot 100 peak: #23 (one week)
Weeks in the Top-40: 6

Today's Song of the Day was the second hit for the British electro-pop duo Eurythmics, who broke through the music world in a huge way in 1983 with their #1 hit "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)". After the success of that song, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart re-released their previous British minor hit single "Love Is A Stranger", which brought them back to the charts on both sides of the Atlantic...


While "Love is A Stranger" was a moderate hit in the States, the re-release of the single in Britain was a big success, as it reached #6 on the pop chart there. It also was a top-10 club hit in America...
