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.

    Another great post. As far as I know these dance mixes have never appeared on CD. It’s fine to get them in pristine quality. Thanks Paul. Hope you have a great weekend.

    Thank you Paul. This is the perfect complement to the 7″ Chill Mix. In my opinion this is one of their most underrated tunes. Thanks for the fine work here!

    Pristine! Thank you, Paul. Love this track. Annie sounds absolutely heavenly in it. She is simply amazing. Your rip of course is perfection. Thank you.

    By the way…would you happen to have the 12″ of “Still A Thrill” by Jody Watley? It’s not one of her more well known hits, but a solid track nonetheless. Haven’t heard the Extended Version before. Thanks!!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome MusicMan3. Yes I have “Still A Thrill” Jody is one of my favorite female artists of the 80s I have most of her singles 🙂

    MusicMan3 Reply:

    I am digging deeper into Jody’s catalog and I’m loving her! 🙂

    That´s strange. Didn´t I put a comment here on Saturday?!? Hmmmmm.

    Anyway, I wanted to say that Chill is one of my all time favourites by the Eurythmics. This is one of about 20 Eurythmics 12inches in my collection. The dance mix is not one of my favourites. It could (and should if you ask me) have been done more interesting and more beautiful but the song itself is so wonderful it gives me…well…chills 🙂

    Thank you, Paul. And have a great weekend.

    OH MY GOSH! This is amazing… from my favorite Eurythmics album, and one of my favorite albums overall… just can’t wait to hear this. Thank you so much for sharing it DjPaulT!!!!

  12. Alberto Says:

    Eurythmics always remind me Winter. Not sure why. This song is so cold but I liked it a lot.
    Thank you so much for riping it in your trademark quality sounding uploadings.

  13. Corey Says:

    You have no idea how happy you have made me today Paul. I’ve been stuck with a noticeably glitchy vinyl rip of this amazing eurythmics track for years but thanks to you I now have a version that would rival even a CD remaster. Thanks so much for all that you do 😀

    [Reply]

  14. John Says:

    It’s fantastic that you’ve posted this 12″ version that has never been on CD, great post Paul.

    The Eurythmics released an album boxset in 2005 with all their albums plus 12″, this track wasn’t included, and as Daniel mentioned earlier in this post, has never been on CD.

    “You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart” and “Beethoven (I Love to Listen To)” are my two favourite tracks from their 1987 album Savage.
