The Movie This is From: 1984
The Better Known Song From This Soundtrack: Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty Four) (Eurythmics)
Virgin Films hired the Eurythmics to write the soundtrack for their adaptation of the Orwell novel. But the film’s director Michael Radford was unhappy with having the band “foisted” on him so he commissioned an orchestral score. Two version of the film were released – one with the orchestral music and one using the Eurythmics tunes.
Fun fact: The song performed best in Ireland where it reached #17.
