Tough call here. Definitely an influence on '80s music, but did they have enough hits? The solo success of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart's production work will help their case. I'm not sure but I'm guessing they'll get in eventually.

Integral part of the 80's synth-pop/"new wave" sound, evolved to blend some more rock and r&b into their work, very successful in Britain even predating "Sweet Dreams", outlasted most of their early 80's peers, Dave Stewart's production and Annie Lennox's rich and rare and evocative voice.

Too many new wavers deserve in over Eurythmics and aren't in.

Eurythmics... I can't really decide if they should be in.

Good band, but I'm not quite sure whether they fit the criteria. I could accept it once the earlier and more influential New Wavers get in first.

They should definitely be in. Kinda surprised they aren't

Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart are nominated for the 2013 Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Eurythmics are a tough call but I would lean towards YES. For two people,they packed quite a punch musically. Sweet Dreams was a Classic 80's song as well as Here Comes The Rain Again.

Okay, now w/ more research I see Annie Lennox is not Eligible til 2017? But The Eurythmics have been Eligible since 2006. ... hmmm, I see, said the blind man to the deaf man ... so evidently Annie is being saved to go into RRHOF as a soloist. Makes sense (cents?) I guess.

The Eurythmics have been covered countless times. Their influence is indisputable.

Pure genius. Hers, is one of the most powerful female voices in music, and his experimental production still influences today. Majorly influential, innovative, sonically inventive continually drawing inspiration from many influences. They crossed over from New Wave into pure pop, folk, rock, r&b/ Soul, early electronica (Savage is a gem), never losing that distinct magic that made them instantly recognizable. Brilliant pioneers of the video revolution who used the power of the image to transform their music into true art, often making statements to challenge the establishment and the viewer. Talent aside, they have both worked tirelessly in their humanitarian efforts - using their gifts to foster a message of peace & love in the world. Their influence continues to inspire new generations of listeners and artists, and they are both significantly successful in their solo careers.
