    I considered making a classics thread for Beethoven (if there isn't already one) but surely that would just be everyone saying "yes Marilyn this is one of the best songs ever, good call" so I thought this might be more interesting

    Some of the latter-day Annie singles listed on wiki are a bit iffy (some duet with David Gray that didn't chart anywhere, random songs from the Christmas album and Nostalgia) so I've left them out

    Many Rivers To Cross is just a perf from American Idol I think, but it charted on the Billboard Hot 100 (as did I Put A Spell On You - seriously), so it's here

    The eighties singles are just blinding, even the ones marked a bit lower are still great and I still sing along to them at the top of my lungs regularly (while impersonating Annie's huge-mouth-creepy-smile style of performing)

    Solo Annie is a lot patchier but when she got it right, :disco:

    I'm afraid I can't be arsed trawling through all her solo shite and ?? just deserves an instant banning, so here's a flung-together LENNOXY CINQ

    1. Shame - Now, there's a lifestyle with FASHION CHIC :smoke:
    2. Beethoven (I Love To Listen To) - I'd love to know. WOULDN'T YOU?
    3. Who's That Girl? - The video truly was a Meisterwerk :disco:
    4. The Miracle Of Love - "How many sorrows do you try to hide?" :(
    5. Here Comes The Rain Again - Just amazing on every single level

    Statement from Dame Annie Lennox (OBE)

    'Bereft I feel.

    The fecundity of my musical output, discussed coldly betwixt you annihilators of my female experience, as if I were cattle feed, consumed by Rwandan (that's in Africa where my plentiful, bounteous crotchfruit are learning the reality of life on poverty wages) livestock, staring bovinely at an effervescent hedge.

    #metoo (the tales I have heretofore not spoken about George Michaels and his LUST for my essence will chill your heart)

    #HIVpositivelyyours

    #Ihopeyouunderstandme

    Dame Annie'
