Song of the Day: The Tourists – “I Only Want to Be with You” (1979)

Happy belated birthday wishes go out to the one and only Annie Lennox, who turned 63 on Christmas Day. Today we’re going way back to The Tourists, which was Annie and Dave Stewart’s band before Eurythmics. This band had more of a rock edge than a lot of the hits that would come from Eurythmics and Lennox, and their music is fun to go back and listen to. This cover of the Dusty Springfield classic reached the top 10 in the UK and Australia. Annie was never not cool, as this song and video prove.
