Eurythmics: Touch (1983)
Here Comes the Rain Again is a great song with a really great video. This is another band that seemed to thrive in the MTV world. They were able to craft compelling videos, which probably helped with records sales and attracting fans.
Some of the remainder of the record I find to be a little pedestrian. Who's That Girl? does little for me and neither does Right By Your Side. One gets the nagging feeling that the band was fleeing for more commercial territory and abandoning the early sound. This scenario has been played out with so many bands, it's almost as though this is inevitable.
