I think that we need to start the year off right with some tunes by the Eurythmics. My favorite song sung by Annie Lennox was the haunting "Julia" from the film 1984. I loved all of the music from that film. It is sad to note that in light of what some of the Republican candidates are saying today that the song, "Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves" is actually more relevant now than it was then.

I won't bore you with details about the band, but if you want to find out more about the Eurythmics or Annie Lennox you can check out, wikipedia/Eurythmics, wikipedia/Annie_Lennox, and the Official Website of Annie Lennox. I will mention that when I was digging through YouTube, I found a great Annie Lennox version of "Winter Wonderland".

If she sang the phone book I'd listen intently. She and her voice have aged very well.

I'd even listen to her singing about hobbits.

And don't forget No More I Love Yous (embeds disabled by request).

I wish I could view the videos out here. I miss so much.

You would think with all the money spent on the war effort, they would include some funds so I could watch your videos.

Wow...I haven't listened to them in ages, and I really should. One of the best shows I ever went to was when they played Chicago at the Auditorium Theater back in the early 80's.

when I was just a young slip of a girl I used to dance the night away listening to "Love is a Stranger" and lots of other songs, (sigh). those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end, we'd sing and dance forever and a day... opps wrong song:)

Dr. Zaius - this is an excellent way to begin the new year. THANKS!

When will these humans learn? Singing is for apes only, and they are only fit for grunting and suchlike.


Happy New Year, Dr. Zaius.

Dr. Monkerstein: I agree, Annie Lennox rocks!

StonyPillow: Hey! Thanks for pointing out those two songs! Do you have a blog?

Wyldth1ng: Our soldiers in the field need a lot more than videos. A competent leader would be a good start. Just get home safely, that's all we ask.

Bubs: When I went through the videos, they brought back all kinds of memories. I love this music.

Liberality: I have strong memories of my youth being orchestrated by the Eurythmics. What great songs!

BAC: That's what I thought! Thank you. Annie Lennox will start the year off right for us.

Darkblack: Man can be taught a few simple tricks, nothing more. Happy New Year, Darkblack. Great pix on your blog!

'Great pix on your blog'

And you as well, sir...Always, I am bound to see a revealing artifact of human ridiculousness within these environs.

Thank you, sir. I may not be human, but I nothing but ridiculousness!

I completely agree. "Julia" was the most haunting song of the 1984 soundtrack. I just featured one of her new pieces as a music pick at my group blog...

At Fri Jan 04, 11:24:00 AM, Blogger Dr. Zaius said...

I get chills when I hear that song. On the other hand, I get chills when I hear see that movie, too! What's the link to your group blog?

No human ever looked better in Demask outfits! Great post, thanx.
