Eurythmics – The King And Queen Of America (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 26th August 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

A. Front

“The King and Queen of America” is a song recorded by pop music duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart and produced by Stewart with Jimmy Iovine. The track appears on their album We Too Are One and was released as the album’s third UK single in January 1990 peaking at #29.

The song’s music video showed Lennox and Stewart in a variety of costumes and settings which parodied various aspects of American pop culture, including a game show host and hostess, singing cowboy and cowgirl à la Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

Although not released as a single in the United States, “The King and Queen of America” received a fair amount of airplay on MTV.

Eurythmics – The Walk (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 3rd December 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

REQUEST

“The Walk” was Eurythmics’ fourth single, produced by band member David A. Stewart and Adam Williams (ex-bassist of The Selecter), self-funded at Eurythmics own 8-track home studio. As with their previous three singles, it was a commercial failure, reaching only #89 in the UK Singles Charts.

All the non-album tracks from this single were omitted from Sony BMG’s remastering of 2005, and remain unavailable on CD. “Invisible Hands” had been the working title for what became the group’s Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) album, but in the end was dropped from the album altogether.

Eurythmics – This Is The House (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd December 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

REQUEST

“This Is the House” was Eurythmics’ third single, recorded in 1982 on their own 8-track home studio in north London, built with a personal bank loan from group member David A. Stewart’s bank manager rather than record company support. Although the following year it was included on the group’s hugely successful Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) album, the single itself was a commercial flop, failing to chart. No music video was made for the single.

The recordings were produced by Stewart and Adam Williams, ex-bassist of 2 Tone Records band The Selecter. They showcased a new sound and direction from the group, focusing on synthesizers and drum machines as opposed to the psychedelic guitar-based band sound of their In the Garden album.

The 12 inch single featured an extended remix of the track, plus four songs recorded on Eurythmics 1982 tour. This extended mix, plus the live version of “Your Time Will Come”, were omitted from SonyBMG’s 2005 remaster package, and remain unavailable on CD.

Special note about the live tracks: There is some distortion that is due to the original mastering. This distortion can also be heard on the 2005 CD remaster of “In The Garden”. I made every attempt to clean this up but some noise is still present. I also seperated each live track into seperate files because they are banded into seperate tracks on the 12″. The tracks will however flow together when played all at once.

“Right by Your Side” is a song by the British pop duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, and produced by Stewart. The track was released as the second single in the UK from Eurythmics’ third album Touch.

“Right by Your Side” was something of a departure from previous Eurythmics songs, and is an uptempo love song which features a calypso music instrumental backdrop, complete with synthesized steel drum and marimba sounds and a horn section.

“Right by Your Side” became the fourth consecutive Eurythmics single to hit the Top 10 of the UK singles chart during 1983. It also climbed to number 29 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

“Plus Someting Else” is an instrumental/dub mix of the song “Regrets”; this version was included as a bonust track on the 2005 CD remaster of the album Touch. Shemefully the CD version does not include the full outro and is faded out nearly ten seconds early.
