Annie Lennox & Al Green – Put A Little Love In Your Heart

In 1988, Annie Lennox and Al Green recorded a version that was released as the ending theme song to the 1988 film Scrooged. The song reached number 9 in the US on the Hot 100 in January 1989 and climbed all the way to number 2 on the US Adult Contemporary chart, as well as becoming a top 40 hit in several countries worldwide. Although credited to Lennox, the song was produced by her Eurythmics partner David A. Stewart.

The video was directed by Sophie Muller.

“Put a Little Love in Your Heart” is a song originally performed in 1969 by Jackie DeShannon, who composed it with her brother Randy Myers and Jimmy Holiday. In the U.S., it was DeShannon’s highest-charting hit, reaching number 4 on the Hot 100 in August 1969 and number 2 on the Adult Contemporary charts.[1] In late 1969, the song reached number one on South Africa’s hit parade.
