Emily Browning: Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These) Meaning
Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These) Lyrics
Who am I to disagree?
Travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to...
A classic example of not believing what you read. The truth about this classic song has been long misinterpreted for nearly 30 years. I was a manager for a band on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia in 1990 with a drummer in it named Jim Toomey ( Who played in the band "The Tourists" along with Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox before they formed the latter "The Eurythmics"). Jim was asked to join The Eurythmics when The Tourists folded. Dave Stewart wrote the song with some imput from Annie in Jims honour after he declined the offer to join the band having been in numerous other bands over many years prior and was tiring of all the constant travel, getting ripped off and burnt by managers and record companies alike. Jim and Dave had a very strong bond together when they were in The Tourists and loved each other like brothers.
It has nothing at all to do with BDSM. It's all about Jim. Fact.
