Annie Lennox is The Voice of the 1980s. Lots of other singers lay claim to the title but in terms of innovation, boundary pushing and sheer chops, the 1980s were Lennox’ decade and we all just happened to live in it. If you weren’t born in the 80s or are unfamiliar with Annie Lennox you have some catching up to do as regards female superstar singers.
Movie theme songs and soundtrack hits made there mark in 1993, as they would for the rest of the decade, but hip-hop, rock, pop and a hit that was already 6 years old made their marks on the charts.
