Sweet Dreams Are Too Legit To Quit

Here's a mashup of two classic songs, Mc Hammer's "Too Legit to Quit" versus Holly Henry's acapella cover of Eurythmic's "Sweet Dreams".

Stanley Kirk Burrell (born March 30, 1962), better known by his stage name MC Hammer (or simply Hammer), is an American rapper, songwriter, dancer and

record producer.

He is also an entrepreneur and celebrity spokesperson, remembered for his rapid rise to fame. Hammer is known for hit songs such as "U Can't Touch This" and "2 Legit 2 Quit", flashy dance movements, extravagant choreography and eponymous Hammer pants.

Too Legit to Quit is the fourth studio album by Hammer, released on October 29, 1991 by Capitol Records and EMI Records. The album, also produced by Felton Pilate, has been certified silver in the UK by the BPI and triple platinum in the US by the RIAA. The album managed to sell more than 5 million copies.

Holly Henry, is an American singer-songwriter from Minnesota. She took her stage name when competing in 2013 on the fifth season of The Voice (United States edition).

She subsequently built an international fan base through her YouTube channel and original music releases.

"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" is a song by British new wave music duo Eurythmics. It is the title track of their album of the same name (1983) and was released as the fourth and final single from the album in early 1983. The song became their breakthrough hit, establishing the duo worldwide.

Its music video helped to propel the song to number two on the UK Singles Chart and number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was the first single released by Eurythmics in the US. Recorded by the Eurythmics in a small project studio, the song's success heralded a trend of musicians abandoning larger recording studios for home recording methods.
