Eurythmics – Revival (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 5th, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

A. Front

“Revival” is a song recorded by British pop music duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, along with keyboardist Pat Seymour and vocalist Charlie Wilson (of The Gap Band) who also sang backing vocals for the track. Produced by Dave Stewart and Jimmy Iovine, it was the first single to be released from Eurythmics’ 1989 album We Too Are One.

Lennox and Stewart returned to a rock/R&B sound for the album, and “Revival” is an uptempo tune which lyrically is a call for renewal and encouragement. The single reached number 26 in the UK, and was the duo’s sixteenth (and final) Top 20 single in Australia. “Revival” was not released as a single in the United States.

    I was thinking about the Extended mix of this the other day as it wasn’t featured on the 2005 reissues of their albums and I hadn’t heard it in years. It’s not one of their strongest singles, but still an enjoyable track. Thanks!

    I didn’t buy into this as ET Thorngren produced a horrible extended version of ‘Would I lie to you’ and I swore Id never listen to any of his material again. There were far more stronger tracks than this one on the album too ..

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I think so Omar do you know what the track length is?

    [Reply]

    Omar Reply:

    It’s basically just a slight extension of the album mix. It runs in at 5:05 min.
