Glistening Hallucination

Annie Lennox conjures images of being an Ice Queen dominatrix on the Eurythmics' cover of Winter Wonderland; her eyes glistening like frozen caldrins stirring Christmas chills. Annie's irony-infused delivery spurts electro-elegance (her slithering pronounciation of "season" is especially good) as the swirling introduction snowballs with synths and strings, as if observing an urgent transportation taking place, escaping iminent danger at the very last second.
