    Lennox was born on Christmas Day, her father worked at the shipyard, and her mother was a cook until she became a housewife. Lennox was an only child and the family lived in a small two-roomed apartment in a tenement with communal laundry facilities. Despite her family's financial status, Lennox had piano lessons at school from the age of seven years at the cost of £4.00 per term. She was interested in singing and, with plenty of time to herself, passed some of the time by singing along to the popular music of the time, including music by The Beatles. She was an unhappy teenager, partly because of a struggle over boundaries for her independence with her overprotective father.
    In the 1970s, Lennox won a place at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she studied the flute and classical music for three years. She lived on a student grant and worked at part-time jobs for extra money. Lennox was unhappy during her time at the Royal Academy partly because she was lonely and shy, and she missed many history-of-music lessons.

    In 1976, Lennox was flautist with a band called Dragon's Playground. Between 1977 and 1980, she was the lead singer of The Tourists , a moderately successful British pop band and her first collaboration with Dave Stewart. During the time they were in The Tourists, Stewart and Lennox were involved in a relationship, though this had ended by the time they formed Eurythmics. Lennox and Stewart's second collaboration, the 1980s synthpop duo Eurythmics, resulted in her most notable fame.
    Though Eurythmics never officially disbanded, Lennox made a fairly clear break from Stewart in 1990. Thereafter, she began a long and equally-successful solo career.Lennox has received eight BRIT Awards, the most of any female artist. Four of the awards were given during her time with Eurythmics, and another was given to the duo for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 1999.

    Lennox has garnered a significant following within the LGBT community. According to The Advocate, "her distinctive voice and provocative stage persona have made Lennox a longtime gay icon." With Eurythmics' music videos earning regular rotation on MTV in the 1980s, Lennox took part in the shaping of popular culture alongside other gay icons such as Boy George, Madonna, Morrissey, and Michael Stipe.

    In 2004, Lennox won the Academy Award for Best Song for "Into the West" from the film The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

    Her first marriage, from 1984 to 1985, was to a German Hare Krishna devotee Radha Raman. From 1988 to 2000, she was married to Israeli film and record producer Uri Fruchtmann. They have two daughters, Lola (born 1990), and Tali (born 1993), who models for fashion chain Karen Millen. A son, Daniel, was stillborn in December 1988. On 15 September 2012, Lennox married South African gynaecologist Dr Mitch Besser, in London, in a private ceremony. Guests included Colin Firth and Ruby Wax. Lennox met Besser, who has two teenage sons, in 2009 after becoming involved in his charity mothers2mothers which helps children and single mothers with AIDS.

    Well gladly consider your musical recommendations and other suggestions! To do this itisnt necessary to register! Its enough to add your name, the message (name of the song) and the verification code.

    How to recommend?

    Its easy to determine the chances that a certain composition will be added, simply by listening to the station for a few hours. Its even faster to get oriented by looking through the TOP100 tracks.

    Three main criteria:

    1) The song should be melodic! The simplest sign of the melodic quality of a composition: desire to sing along. Or, as a minimum, when the song stops the tune should be easily continued in the mind.

    2) Of course melodic songs exist in any genre, but the track must follow our stations format. The format is limited from different sides with a few main directions: soul, funk, rock, disco, blues, reggae and other relatively calm genres. The most important thing is to avoid extremes: metal, heavy rock, rap,"chanson", opera, and other styles will unfortunately stick out from the main direction even with a bright melody.

    3) Good quality! A lot of great music, recorded mainly before the 60s, doesnt have the quality of modern sound recording. This can be taken as motivation to find a good cover.

    All recommended compositions are stored in the music database of the radio and may be playedon-air at any moment, but sometimes this happens with a significant delay.
    After the decision is made, a composition is put on-air and appears in the TOP/30/100 section of recent additions. If a composition was added on the station but attributed to another recommender it means it was recommended by them before you.
