This is a song written and performed by the British new wave music duo #Eurythmics .
The song is the title track of their album of the same name and was released as the fourth and final single from the album in early #1983 The song became their breakthrough hit, establishing the duo worldwide. Its music video helped to propel the song to number 2 on the #uksingleschart and number 1 on the #usbillboardhot100 It was the first single released by Eurythmics in the US.
According to #annielennox the lyrics reflected the unhappy time after the break up of #TheTourists , when she felt that they were "in a #dreamworld ", and that whatever they were chasing was never going to happen. She described the song as saying: "Look at the state of us. How can it get worse?", adding "I was feeling very vulnerable. The song was an expression of how I felt: hopeless and nihilistic." Stewart however thought the lyrics too depressing, and added the "hold your head up, moving on" line to make it more uplifting.

When I think of this song, even when I sing it I think of my own man who I am loyal to the death for❤ When you commit to someone, it should be with all of your body and soul!
Derided by the feminist movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s, Wynette in later years defended the song as not a call for women to place themselves second to men, but rather a suggestion that women attempt to overlook their husbands' shortcomings and faults if they truly love them. "Stand by Your Man" is a song co-written by Tammy Wynette and Billy Sherrill and originally recorded by Wynette, released as a single in the United States in September 1968. It proved to be the most successful record of Wynette's career, and is one of the most recorded songs in the history of country music. The song was placed at number one on CMT's list of the Top 100 Country Music Songs.
I hope you love my version of it!

I remember the first song I heard of hers called "Fallin'" back in 2001. I had not heard many of @aliciakeys other songs as I ventured into other genres of music beyond R & B after that time. Recently, I heard this song by Alicia that I have sang for you called "In Common". I found her new sound 🎶attractive, and I love it!
I recently have been watching, or rather listening, to the crtiquing given on the show "The ✌Voice🎙" where Alicia is one of the coaches on the show this season. I am so intrigued by her perspective on music, lyrics and tone🎤❤
So this lead to me searching out her music again! I am listening to her most recent album and found this gem🌟
It reminds me of a time when I experienced "Love-at-first-sight" for myself over 14 years ago😍
Please give it a listen and see what you think!
