To some, Annie Lennox is an acquired taste. To others, she is an artist of immense talent and depth. I am in both camps. It took me awhile to warm up to her unusual approach to rock, pop and soul, first with the Eurythmics and later as a solo artist, but when I heard Sweet Things Are Made of This, I became a believer. VH1 named her the Greatest White Soul Singer Alive and Rolling Stone named her one of the 100 Greatest Singers Of All Time. Today's countdown tune is trademark Lennox. With her always unique vocals, a great rhythm track and instrumentation and some of the most compelling visuals you will ever see in any video, she makes God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen a haunting and enchanting visual/musical experience, capturing the power of the original lyrics while making them completely new and relevant.
