You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart

"You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart" is a song recorded by British pop duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, and appears on the duo's album Savage. It was released as the fourth single from the album in the UK, and the second in the United States.

The track is driven by a drum machine and is a mostly synth-based pop song. Lyrically, Lennox sings of mustering the power to leave a destructive relationship with a lover who does not return the affection she deserves ("...a woman's just too tired to think / about the dirty ol' dishes / in the kitchen sink").

The song's music video was the conclusion of a video trilogy directed by Sophie Muller (the first two parts being for the songs "Beethoven (I Love to Listen to)" and "I Need a Man"). In it, Lennox's character leaves behind her former housewife and disco diva personas as she puts painful relationship woes behind her and finds new love.

"You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart" was the only single from Savage to reach the Top 20 in the UK, peaking at number sixteen; the duo's twelfth overall.
