Eurythmics was the name of a duo formed by musician Dave Stewart and vocalist Annie Lennox formed in 1980 after their previous band The Tourists had split up. The duo's first album In The Garden, produced by Krautrock maestro Conny Plank, met with critical acclaim although failed to enjoy any significant commercial success. The duo broke through with their next release, the much more synth-pop based Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This (1982) featuring the hit single of the same name. They later took a more rock-centred musical approach on subsequent albums, before splitting up in 1990.

Peel does not seem to have expressed any interest in their music, either as Tourists or Eurythmics, although chart successes for the latter meant that he presented them on several editions of Top of the Pops. Peel played Winter Wonderland on his 1987 Christmas special called Only At Christmas and also Annie Lennox' solo hit single Little Bird when standing in for Jakki Brambles in 1993.
