"Revival" is a song recorded by British pop music duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, along with keyboardist Pat Seymour and vocalist Charlie Wilson (of The Gap Band) who also sang backing vocals for the track. Produced by Dave Stewart and Jimmy Iovine, it was the first single to be released from Eurythmics' 1989 album We Too Are One.

Lennox and Stewart returned to a rock/R&B sound for the album, and "Revival" is an uptempo tune which lyrically is a call for renewal and encouragement. The single reached number 26 in the UK, and was the duo's sixteenth (and final) Top 20 single in Australia. "Revival" was not released as a single in the United States.
