"Belinda" is a 1981 song by the British new wave duo Eurythmics. It was the band's second single, and the second and final single to be taken from their debut album In the Garden.

Background[edit]

The single, which was released only in the UK, was not a commercial success and failed to chart. No music video was made for the single.

The song was co-produced by Conny Plank and featured members of Can, and also Robert Görl of D.A.F..

The B-side, "Heartbeat, Heartbeat" was exclusive to this single, though it was later included on the remastered version of In The Garden in 2005.
