Nicht schlecht
sehr gut
sehr gut!
Auch als Mann finde ich den Song SPITZE!
10ter Hit von 20 !! in Holland von Annie Lennox (25-Dezember-1954) und David A. Stewart (9 September 1952) und auch vor Aretha Franklin (25 März 1942) "Queen of Soul" war es Hit nummero 10......in November 1985.
Rasanter, energischer Frauen-Power-Song.
Zum Tag der Frau: 5 Sterne, genau ;-))
In jeder Note total genial gesungener Soul/Rock-Song, der sich eine gewisse Zeitlosigkeit bewahrt hat. Annie Lennox beweißt hier ganz wunderbar, dass man auch neben einer Überstimme wie der von Aretha bestehen kann. Nicht nur eine Frauen-Hymne oder bei Gays durchaus angesagt! ;-))

Für mich einer der besseren Songs der Eurythmics, nicht ihr bester, aber ein schöner, flotter Hit, der Aretha Franklin zurück in die Charts brachte. Ein Klassiker aus den 80er Jahren mit einer tollen Message.
Nettes Liedchen... Um was gehts da im Text? Damals verstand ich noch kein Englisch, heute hab ich den Song nicht mehr "greifbar"...
Eher nerviger "Weisse Frau tritt schwarze Soul-Lady und wir zeigens den Männern)-Track. War mir zu wenig elektronisch damals.
cooler track, da geht die post ab...
tolle kollabo
Fine ich ziemlich gut, wird vielfach in Filmen verwendet.
Ja, die beiden Frauenstimmen ergänzen sich bei diesem Feger hervorragend!
so good
na ja, eurythmics solo gefallen mir bedeutend besser
A great women-song!
▒ Begin november 1985 een hitje in Nederland voor het Britse synthpopduo: "Eurythmics" en Grandlady: "Aretha Franklin" !!! Krap 5 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 5 wk / # 20) ☺!!!

@22-07-2013: Gezakt naar 4 sterren helaas ☺!!!

Groovy & rockig
super nummer
Now, this is a song to celebrate
the conscious liberation of the female state.

Ich denke Mal da gehts drum, die emanzipation der Frauen zu huldigen. Wusste gar nicht, dass da Aretha auch mitwirkte, obwohl man sie schon etwas raushört. Klingt mir zu sehr nach Eurythmics.
Schließe mich vollständig LarkCGNs Meinung an. Ein Song, der mitreißt. Da unterwerfe ich mich doch gern der Frauenbewegung - solange sie (Und das ist hier der Fall!!!) rhythmisch ist (Zappa).
Mmmh .... macht mich leider nicht an!

Eine 5 fürs Fetzige (die Stimmen passen gut und es rockt !).
Eine 3 im Vergleich zu anderen - coolen Eurythmic - Songs.

gibt nicht allzuviel her
...aufgerundete fünf...
ein gutes duett..
Durchschnitt.Grooviger Sound.
Den hatte ich aber auch schon 100pro bewertet gehabt. Mit dieser Nummer konnte ich mich nie so richtig anfreunden - zu soulig, unharmonisch im Sound und nichtgreifend. 3+
Zwei Frauen mit Power, die mich dennoch nicht ganz packen können.
Sooo geil!
Fetziger Song - Tolle Kombination!
finde ich nicht besonders toll
Lennox und Franklin: Zwei starke Stimmen, aus denen aber noch mehr hätte herausgeholt werden können...
gut, nicht mehr und nicht weniger. hier fehlt mir der die melodik, die man sonst bei den eurythmics findet!
Ein Hurra auf die "Frauenbewegung"! *lool*
Obwohl hier besonders die "Emanzipation" und "Hoch auf Frauen" stark in den Vordergrund gebracht wird, ein klasse Song. :-))
sehr gut
2 Powerfrauen der 80er,Annie und Aretha
"Powervolles Duett"
Spitzenklasse, die beiden miteinander
Gute kraftvolle Nummer aus dem Jahr 1985. In 10 /85 USA #18 11/85 GB #9 D #22
Knappe 4*
Wenn sie mal nur ihr eigenes Ding gemacht hätten...
Für alle Schwestern!
Ja diese beiden Ladies stehen echt für das, was sie da von sich geben. Hammergeile, kraftvolle, unerreichbare Girlpower!
"Sisters are doin it for themselves.
Standin on their own two feet.
And ringin on their own bells.
Sisters are doin it for themselves.

Now this is a song to celebrate
The conscious liberation of the female state!
Mothers - daughters and their daughters too.
Woman to woman
Were singin with you.
The inferior sex got a new exterior
We got doctors, lawyers, politicians too.
Everybody - take a look around.
Can you see - can you see - can you see
Theres a woman right next to you."

Ein Hoch an die Emanzipation! Vor allem der, der Dancefloors... ;)
Nach der aeusserst fruchtbaren Zusammenarbeit der maennlichen Musiker, Songwriter und Gutmenschen Stevie Wonder & Paul McCartney mit ihrer 1982 eingesungenen Weltvision tun sich hier drei Jahre spaeter Aretha Franklin und Annie Lennox als schlagkraeftiges „Ebony and Ivory“ Frauen- und Gesangs-Power-Duo zusammen, kommen aus der Kuecher heraus, und machen ihre starke Ansage (Text-Kern w.o):

„Now this is a song to celebrate …
… The "inferior sex" got a new exterior.”

Mega Knaller, der die Veraenderungen im Rollenbild der Frau musikalisch effektvoll auf den Punkt bringt. Queen Aretha und Popikone Annie in gesanglicher Hochform.
Ein Zeitzeugnis aus der Pop-Soul Abteilung.

Sehenswert auch das Video, in dem die beiden Rampensaeue dem Publikum die neu angebrochenen Zeiten erklaeren; der handzame Dave Stewart macht ihnen uneitel den Gitarren-Hampelmann dazu.

Diese Zusammenarbeit ist einfach gut und macht Spass - nicht mehr und nicht weniger.
Ja, nicht übel, aber sie hatten bessere Songs. War wohl damals eine Art Highlight, weil 'The Great Aretha Franklin' noch mitdabei war.
Beide hatten wesentlich besseres. Aretha ist eine großartige Sängerin, das kommt hier gar nicht zum Ausdruck. Genausowenig wie die Qualitäten von Eurythmics.
Top aber nicht auf Dauerschleife
ohne aretha hätte ich auch über 5 punkte nachgedacht
Muy buena.
Die Eurythmics & Aretha, was für eine geile Paarung! Und die Nummer hat es dann auch voll in sich. Ein fetter Soul/Pop-Ohrwurm, der ordentlich Dampf macht und mittlerweile zu einer echten Gay-Hymne geworden ist. Da sieht man mal wieder das wir einen hervorragenden Musik-Geschmack haben;-)

Ganz gut +4
Hier sind wir mal wieder einer Meinung @Redhawk1.

Sixties-Soul trifft auf Eighties-Synthpop - das Ergebnis ist ein ziemlich heißer Partykracher. Gut so.
Sehr, sehr poppig für ihre Verhältnisse (kein Wunder bei
ihren Partnern hier), aber mir gefällt's richtig gut.....
Knappe 5 ....
Haut richtig rein!
Peaked at #15 in Australia, 1985.
Leidenschaftlich und fetzig. Großartige Zusammenarbeit.
gute Zusammenarbeit aus Mitte der 80er, flott abgehalten – 4+…
guter Song
Klasse Duett
eines der lieder, das man nicht gut finden kann, ohne gleich vom friseur angezwinkert zu werden, um mal ein klischee zu vermeiden....
ik houd niet zo van Aretha Franklin, maar in combinatie met de stem van Annie Lennox klinkt het wel erg goed. Een plaat waarin het thema duidelijke vrouwenemancipatie is. Een erg sterk nummer uit de hoogtijdagen van Eurythmics!!!
... sehr gute Stimmen ...4+ ...
Brilliantes Duett, da fehlt nicht viel bis zur 6. Zwei starke Frauen (auch und vor allem gesanglich) zeigen, wo's langgeht :D
Eine der besten Eurythmics-Singles.
It's alright.
very camp but i like the vocals in this
Not bad.
Matige plaat. Ik vind de stemmen niet bij elkaar passen.
gut, ein klassiker
läuft jeden Tag bei Alice Schwarzer zum Frühstück.
Je dacht toch niet dat Natalia hier zelf mee afgekomen is. Het origineel krijgt dik 5 sterretjes.
Decent enough
knapp überdurchschnittlich...
I think it is due to Aretha Franklin's contribution but I really like the vibe to this one.
das Stück wirkt zwar auf die Länge etwas repetitiv, aber es geht ziemlich gut ab und entwickelt einen flotten Drive, so dass es trotzdem nie langweilig wird - sehr gut!
... durchaus passabel ...
Could've been better, but I still see it as a decent track nonetheless.
Bra låt.
Das beste auf "Be Yourself Tonight". Aber auch kein Knaller. 4+
6 stars
Je n'aime pas trop.
Sehr gutes Duett
Meines Erachtens einer der Höhepunkte im Eurythmics-Schaffen, welcher mit dem soulgeprägten wie auch kraftvollen Beizug von Aretha Franklin auch heute noch zu überzeugen weiss. Sowohl die prägnante Arrangementgestaltung als auch die ebenso konzipierte Refrainfulminanz verdienen die Erwägung der Bestnote. So sei es!
sehr gut
5 stars

Sehr gutes Duett mit Aretha Franklin!
Irgendwie hat mich das Lied damals nie so richtig gepackt und auch jetzt, wo ich´s gerade wieder höre, finde ich den Song schon fast nervig! Fand ich damals auch die schwächste Eurythmics Single bis dato! Für mehr als ne 4 reicht´s mir leider nicht! IRL #5
Das Lied ist jetzt vom Arrangement her eigentlich gar nicht mal so gut, aber es reicht dann doch irgendwie noch, um diesen Ausnahmekünstlern genügend Raum zu geben, dass sie es zu einem Erlebnis machen. Fühle mich sehr gut unterhalten, Song... ja gut, ist okay.

Soeben noch 5.
Mit Verlaub: Aretha Franklin hat einen zu guten Ruf um diesem auch gerecht zu werden. Die gute Frau rotzt ihren Part runter, als müsse sie schnellstens aus dem Studio raus. Ich halte Aretha Franklin für eine der überbewertesten Sängerinnen. Und dieses Duett (oder Trio) hätten sich alle Beteiligten ersparen sollen.

Ein richtig cooler Track!
ik vind dit toch wel 1 van de betere songs van "Eurythmics", een 5
Heerlijke samenwerking
Het nummer ligt nog steeds goed in het gehoor
ordentliche Nummer
Gefällt mir nicht.
Bekannt, gefällt mir aber weniger.

Keine schlechte Musik gewiss, sondern hochwertig gemachter und definitiv anständiger Pop mit Anspruch und Niveau - das möchte ich nicht absprechen, aber die Eurythmics fuhren an meinem Gusto trotzdem immer irgendwie weiträumig vorbei. Ich vergebe drei Sterne als dienliche Wertung.
Som der delen zorgt hier niet voor een geweldig eindresultaat. Gewoon een leuk nummer
So camp but so so good.
Had no idea the other vocalist was Annie Lennox until recently!
