"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" (or simply "Sweet Dreams") is a song written and performed by the British new wave music duo Eurythmics (Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart), now disbanded but known to reunite from time to time.

After almost two years of initial commercial failure for Eurythmics, this album became a commercial breakthrough for the duo on both sides of the Atlantic, first in Europe (1982) and a year later in the US. The title track became particularly popular and it remains one of Eurythmics' most recognisable songs, and its music video, popular on MTV in the United States, is memorable for Annie Lennox's gender-bending imagery.

The singer said that this song was intended to be a musical mantra, that's why it is so repetitive.

 

 

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I 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 be abused

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

-Hold your head up, keep your head up-
Moving on
-Hold your head up- Moving on
-Keep your head up- Moving on
-Hold your head up- Moving on
-Keep your head up- Moving on

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 be abused

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

I found this interpretation on the web:

The information booklet in Eurythmics' 1983 album Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) says that the song is about life as it is, saying that here we are in our existances, trying to make sense of our lives and to survive (Sweet dreams are made of this/Who am I to disagree/I travel the world an the seven seas/Everybody's looking for something).

Then (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 be abused) is indicative of the types of people you run into in daily life.

Finally, (Hold your head up/Keep your head up/Movin' on) means that you must move on despite these obstacles.

Or, the song can be applied to alot of different conflicts (or blissful breakthroughs), which would make the song rather versatile in movies involving predicaments in the beginning which are solved in the end.

In Annie Lennox's eyes, it's what I had originally said it was, but still it can have many different meanings.
