The discography of Eurythmics, a British rock/pop duo, consists of eight studio albums, one live album, two compilation albums, one soundtrack album, one extended play, and thirty-three singles. Their first studio album, In the Garden, was released in 1981 but they did not gain any commercial success until their second album, Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), released in 1983. The album reached number three in the UK[1] and was certified platinum. The album's title track was released as a single, and reached number two in the UK[1] and number one in the United States and Canada.[2] Later in 1983, the duo released their third album, Touch. It topped the UK album chart, and produced three top 10 singles; "Who's That Girl?", "Right by Your Side", and "Here Comes the Rain Again".[1]

In 1984, Eurythmics released the soundtrack album 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother) which included the Top 5 hit "Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty-Four)".[1] Their next studio album, 1985's Be Yourself Tonight, peaked at number three in the UK and went double platinum in both the UK and Canada.[3][4] The single "There Must Be an Angel (Playing with My Heart)" topped the UK chart.[1] The duo continued their chart success with the album Revenge in 1986, which also peaked at number three in the UK and went double platinum in the UK and Canada.[1][3][4]

Eurythmics released their next studio album, Savage, in 1987, which peaked at number seven in the UK, reaching platinum status. In 1989, they released the album We Too Are One, which reached number one in the UK and reached double platinum status.[1] In 1990, the duo informally disbanded and their Greatest Hits album was released in 1991. It topped the UK album chart for 10 weeks,[1] achieving six times platinum in the UK[3] and triple platinum in both the US and Canada.[4][5]

Eurythmics reunited in 1999 and released their eighth and final studio album, Peace, which peaked at number four on the UK chart.[1] A second greatest hits album, Ultimate Collection, was released in 2005, reaching the UK Top 5 and has been certified triple platinum. Overall, the duo have sold over 75 million records worldwide.[6]
