Eurythmics – The Artist/s

Eurythmics were a British pop duo consisting of members Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. Stewart and Lennox were both previously in The Tourists, a band which broke up in 1980; Eurythmics were formed later that year in Wagga Wagga, Australia. The duo released their first studio album, In the Garden, in 1981 to little success, but went on to achieve global success when their second album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), was released in 1983. The title track became a worldwide hit which topped the charts in various countries including the US. The duo went on to release a string of hit singles and albums before they split up in 1990. By this time, Stewart was a sought-after record producer, while Lennox began a solo recording career in 1992 with her debut album Diva.

Sex Crime (Nineteen Eighty Four) – The Song

“Sex Crime (Nineteen Eighty Four)”  is a song written and performed by the British duo Eurythmics. It was released as the first single from their album 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother), which served as the soundtrack to the film Nineteen Eighty-Four, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by George Orwell. The song was produced by Dave Stewart. It was the first of two singles released from the soundtrack album. The term “sexcrime” is one of several Newspeak words found within the novel. The song was originally intended to appear in the film 1984, but was dropped prior to the film’s release. However, it was used as background music for the film’s trailer, and the song’s promotional video was included on home video releases of the film.

The INGSOC Emblem – The Shape

This record has been cut into the NGSOC emblem, a pivotal aspect of the film 1984. Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Novel, often published as 1984, is a dystopian novel by English novelist George Orwell. It was published on 8 June 1949 by Secker & Warburg as Orwell’s ninth and final book completed in his lifetime. Thematically, Nineteen Eighty-Four centres on the consequences of government over-reach, totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of all persons and behaviours within society.[2][3] More broadly, it examines the role of truth and facts within politics and their manipulation. The story takes place in an imagined future, the year 1984, when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, historical negationism, and propaganda. Great Britain, known as Airstrip One, has become a province of a totalitarian superstate named Oceania that is ruled by the Party who employ the Thought Police to persecute individuality and independent thinking.[4] Big Brother, the leader of the Party, enjoys an intense cult of personality despite the fact that he may not exist. The protagonist, Winston Smith, is a diligent and skillful rank-and-file worker and Party member who secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion. He enters a forbidden relationship with a colleague, Julia. Nineteen Eighty-Four has become a classic literary example of political and dystopian fiction. It also popularised the adjective “Orwellian” as an adjective, with many terms used in the novel entering common usage, including Big Brother (often used to refer to secret surveillance and government over-reach), doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak (political correctness), Room 101, telescreen, 2 + 2 = 5 (propaganda), prole, and memory hole (manipulation of recorded history by totalitarian or authoritarian states).
