Atm it's Right By Your Side, since I managed to get a copy of the 12 min extended version (which was not included on the remasters), although every song on Touch is great.

Funny to see one of my threads all up,
because I've been away for quite a while.
When I'm on the official one I'm not here and the other way round.
Just too lazy to entertain people on both sides.


I added two more tracks to my EURTYHMICS compilation.
In fact I wanted to expand it to 18 tracks, but it's impossible
because Paint a Rumour is too long ...

Paint a Rumour and Jennifer are the ones I added.
I think the first one is a very simply but clever and hypnotising track:
I just can't resist its bouncing appeal to get on the dancefloor.
The second one is a rather minimal but again clever and haunting track:
it has a bit of the Laura Palmer spirit that chained us to Twin Peaks.

I bought the Eurythmics Box with the 8 remastered albums, and I think they are pretty good. Some nice bonus tracks from the singles, b-sides and remixes. They could have remastered Touch Dance and 1984 as well imo.

Sweet Dreams: buy! a classic album and good bonus material always loved Monkey Monkey
Touch: buy! not because of the bonus material, but because it's a good album that benefits from remastering
Be yourself tonight: buy! because it was so cheap ... but loved them more in their synth period

My thinking as well. If you buy any of the remasters, these would be my first choices.

I was given press release discs of the remasters prior to release and got a free box edition from the PR company for what I wrote, so quite chuffed with that.  Anyway, here's what I wrote about most (not all) of them:
