After almost two years of initial commercial failure for Eurythmics, this album became a commercial breakthrough for the duo on both sides of the Atlantic. The title track became particularly popular and remains one of Eurythmics' most recognisable songs. In the wake of this success, the single "Love Is a Stranger", previously a flop, was re-released and became a hit as well. It too was accompanied by a striking video that featured Lennox dressed both as a man and a woman. The album was re-released in with all the Eurythmics' studio catalogue except the For the Love of Big Brother album, to which Virgin Records holds the rights. The recordings were remastered and several bonus tracks added to each of eight albums. Dave Stewart, together with Robert Crash and ex- The Selecter bassist Adam Williams, produced the album in Eurythmics' own relatively primitive 8-track studio, winning awards for the quality of the recording that belied its low-budget origins. Sweet Dreams saw the duo move away from the psychedelic, guitar-tinged band-oriented sound of their debut album In the Garden , instead focusing on raw analogue synthesizers including the Oberheim OB1 and EDP Wasp and drum machines particularly the Movement Systems Drum Computer , which featured a graphic visual display of the drum patterns. Whilst the " synthpop " genre had grown in popularity in the preceding years, it was often associated with all-male groups and somewhat clinical, emotionless music.
