    Annie Lennox imho has a wonderful voice and phrasing.

    Her voice is like molasses. Warm and rich.

    Definitely in my top ten, maybe top five, female voices ever.

    I think Dave processed Annie's voice a lot here, giving it a decidedly unnatural and not especially human sound. It was what the market wanted, at the time. Paddy McAloon and Thomas Dolby did the same thing to Wendy Smith's vocals.

    If you want to know what Annie really sounds like, you gotta wait a decade or so.

    Here's a true live version.


    And here's the band in the late eighties performing the song live.


    I always saw Annie Lennox as a female Bowie.
