Eurythmics – You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on November 17th, 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart” is a song recorded by British pop duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, and appears on the duo’s album Savage. It was released as the fourth single from the album in the UK, and the second in the United States.

The track is driven by a drum machine and is a mostly synth-based ballad. Lyrically, Lennox sings of mustering the power to leave a destructive relationship with a lover who does not return the affection she deserves (“…a woman’s just too tired to think / about the dirty old dishes in the kitchen sink”).

The song’s music video continued the concept directed by Sophie Muller (seen earlier in the videos for the singles “Beethoven (I Love to Listen To)” and “I Need a Man”, and throughout most of the Savage video album).

“You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart” was the only single from Savage to reach the Top 20 in the UK, peaking at number 16 (the duo’s 12th overall).

Im the United States the single peaked at #64 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on June 25th, 1988 after spending seven weeks on the survey.

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

“Hey Little Girl” is a single released by Australian band Icehouse, the second single from the band’s 1982 album, Primitive Man.

It was released in October 1982, on Regular Records on 7″ and 12″ vinyl formats. UK and Europe releases by Chrysalis Records were also on 7″ and 12″ formats, but with different track listings.
