This past Thursday, June 17, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, co-founders of the iconic and influential English pop/rock duo Eurythmics, were officially inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in a delayed ceremony originally planned for 2020.

St. Vincent had the honor of paying tribute to Eurythmics prior to the induction with a performance of the duo’s classic track, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).”

Dave Stewart followed the induction ceremony by issuing a statement on behalf of himself and Lennox:

“Annie and I were honored and very happy to be inducted by the wonderfully talented St. Vincent into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Our journey together has been like none other, yet we both know the joy and heartache each artist goes through to get to this point. We feel humbly rewarded that so many people love and appreciate our songs, making us part of a giant tapestry of poets and songwriters that hopefully bring some light into people’s lives.”

Lennox and Stewart were among the new list of inductees into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Via Variety and its exhaustive recap of the ceremony, this year’s inductees included:
