Amazingly, Nicollette Sullivan breathes a whole new life into Sweet Dreams from the vantage point of a jazz singer.

The single for “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” reached at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Number 2 in the UK. In the rest of the world, the song reached the Top 10 in the charts in more than a dozen countries. Part of the single’s success has been attributed to MTV, which played the video repeatedly. Stewart said he and Lennox had wanted something “weird and dreamlike. So we mocked up a record-company boardroom in a studio in Wardour Street and put a cow in it, to signify reality. There we were: Annie and I laid flat on a table, and this cow, which was peeing everywhere.”
