Jennifer told us why she nominated the video – “Annie Lenox – I would kill for that leather outfit!”

From Wikipedia:

Missionary Man” is a song by the British pop music duo Eurythmics. It was taken from their sixth album, Revenge, and continued the band’s rock/R&B musical style of the time and featured Jimmy Zavala on harmonica. In the band’s native UK, it was the fourth single to be taken from the album and peaked at number 31. It was more successful in the United States, where it was the first single to be taken from the album and peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 (becoming their last main US Top 20 hit to date). It also made the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart, and it received extensive airplay on American rock radio, reaching number 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks, Eurythmics’ only song to top this chart. The single was also a top ten hit in Australia.

“Missionary Man” earned Eurythmics a Grammy Award for “Best Rock Vocal Performance – Group”.

The music video for “Missionary Man” was another in a long line of innovative clips from Eurythmics. Directed by Willy Smax, it featured stop-animation techniques similar to those used in Peter Gabriel‘s acclaimed “Sledgehammer” promo video from earlier in 1986. The video received heavy play from MTVand was nominated for Best Video at the MTV Video Awards.

 

Why is this video so THRILLING? Annie Lennox, of course!
