After three years as lead singer of The Tourists, Lennox achieved her most notable fame as the alto, soul-tinged lead singer of the 1980s rock duo Eurythmics with British musician Dave Stewart. Early in the Eurythmics' career, she was known for her androgyny, wearing suits and once impersonating Elvis. Journalists often referred to her as "the white Grace Jones".
Her 1992 album Diva won critical praise and sold well, but her profile decreased for a period due to her desire to raise her two children outside of the media's glare, although she continued to be a major figure in popular music. Medusa - an album of covers in which Lennox tackled songs by everyone from Bob Marley to The Clash - was released three years after Diva, and also sold well. In 1997 she re-recorded the Eurythmics track "Angel" for the Diana, Princess of Wales tribute album. In 1998 - following the death of a mutual friend (former The Tourists leader singer/songwriter Peet Coombes) - she re-established contact with Dave Stewart and by 1999, Eurythmics had reformed for the album Peace. In 2003 she released her third solo album, Bare.
In 2003, Lennox was chosen to record "Into the West" for the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. This song won an Academy Award for Best Song in 2003.
In October 2007, Annie released her fourth solo album, Songs Of Mass Destruction.

- LyricsYou were the sweetest thing that I ever knew
But I don't care for sugar, honey if I can't have you
Since you've abandoned me
My whole life has crashed
Won't you pick the pieces up
- LyricsHow many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
Hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun
- LyricsI look up to the little bird
That glides across the sky
He sings the clearest melody
It makes me want to cry
It makes me want to sit right down
- LyricsWe skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kind of sea-sick
And the crowd called out for more
And the room was humming harder
- LyricsLay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
