Eurythmics: Be Yourself Tonight (1985)
For me, the classic Eurythmics period ended with this record. There are "hits" on this record that are middle-of-the-road and boring, like Would I Lie to You?, Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves, and It's Alright - (Baby's Coming Back). The only song that really interests me is There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart), and that is pushing it. If they were looking for a commercial record filled with pop songs, they succeeded. It works as background music or for when your parents come over for dinner and you want something not too offensive.
