They cried the tears, they shed the fears Up and down the land They stole guitars or used guitars So the tape would understand Without even the slightest hope of a thousand sales Just as if there was a Hitsville in UK Know the boy was all alone, till the Hitsville UK
They say true talent will always emerge in time When lightening hits small wonder It's fast rough factory trade No expense accounts, or lunch discounts Or hypeing up the charts The band went in 'n' knocked 'em dead in two minutes and fifty-nine
No slimey deals, with smarmy eels, in Hitsville UK Let's shake 'n' say we'll operate in Hitsville UK The mutants, creeps and muscle men Are shaking like a leaf It blows a hole in the radio When it hasn't sounded good all week A mike 'n' boom, in your living room - in Hitsville UK No consumer trials, or A.O.R. in Hitsville UK Now the boys and girls are not alone Now the Hitsvilles hit UK

The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
