David Allen (Dave) Stewart is vooral bekend van de band Eurythmics uit de jaren tachtig.

Omdat er ook een keyboard-speler is die Dave Stewart heet noemt Stewart zich meestal David A. Stewart.



Dave vormde met zijn geliefde Annie Lennox de groep The Tourists. Toen de relatie eindigde gingen ze samen verder met Eurythmics. Het duo is meerdere keren uit elkaar gegaan en weer samen gekomen.

Eind jaren tachtig scoorde Dave Stewart samen met de Nederlandse saxofoniste Candy Dulfer een internationale hit met het nummer Lily was here. In Nederland was het een nummer 1-hit in de Top 40.

Samen met The Spiritual Cowboys had hij in 1990 een bescheiden Top 40 hit met Jack talking..

Songtekst

Jack talking, this is Jack talking

He said: "I'm coming to London
I'm sick and tired of the sun"
He said: "I'm coming to London
I'm gonna have some fun"

I says Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)

He said: "Phew I nearly got married
To a bride in black
You know she was always so angry
She's always ready to attack"

That was Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)

I'm gonna tell him what to do because he's such a fool
He's always looking for the easy way out
There's only love and hate, time and fate
The rest is, the rest is, the rest is

Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)

He said: "I'm finished with acting
Makes you feel like Jesus or John Wayne (Yeah!)
So I'm coming to London (Yeaheaheaheah!)
I'm gonna hang out in the rain" (Hang out in the rain)

Ah, it's Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
And I love him

He's divine

What's he gonna say?
Jack, swing it

I'm gonna tell him what to do because he's such a fool
He's always looking for the easy way out
There's only love and hate, time and fate
The rest is, the rest is, the rest is

Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)
Jack talking (Jack talking to you)

We better listen (Oooh, ooohooohooo)
To that man (Jack talking to you)
Because he knows things (Jack talking to you)
Well, we don't understand (Jack talking to you)
(Jack talking to you)

He's got the world listening (Oooh, ooohooohooo)
