Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams‘ creepily intros the first episode of Dead Ringers perfectly

The new Rachel Weisz thriller Dead Ringers premiered on Amazon Prime Video this week and, along with its tons of crazy, it surprisingly also features some damned good music on its soundtrack.

The first episode of the psychological drama kicks off with Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)‘, which plays throughout the entire episodes’s opening credits — Dead Ringers, Episode 1 — while foreshadowing the creepiness of what is going to come.
