Sweet Revenge
In 1978 Lear continued her line of disco hits with Sweet Revenge, an album that opens with a concept medley about a Faustian fairy tale of a girl who sells her soul to the devil for fame and fortune and in her eventual revenge over the devil's offer finds true love.
The first single from Sweet Revenge, the dark and seductive opening track "Follow Me", powered by Lear's characteristic deep and recitative voice and the theme of the devil, was an instant smash hit. It reached the Top 3 in the West German singles chart as well as No. 3 in the Netherlands, No. 7 in Switzerland, No. 6 in Austria, No. 6 in France and Top 20 in most parts of Europe. The single is estimated to have sold some two million copies worldwide and has been Lear's signature tune ever since. The 12" mix of the track, mixed by Canadian DJ Wally MacDonald and originally only released in North America, also incorporates the finale of the concept medley, "Follow Me (Reprise)".

The Sweet Revenge album was certified gold in West Germany, France, Italy and Belgium and went on to sell in excess of four million copies and make the charts in forty-one countries including Chile, South Africa, India and Thailand. In Thailand it was a number-one album for sixteen weeks, spawning further European hit singles "Gold" and "Run Baby Run" from the concept medley, as well as "Enigma (Give a Bit of Mmh to Me)". These tracks were co-written by Lear, but her larger-than-life image made her one of the few artists of the Eurodisco era whose star power and charisma outshone the music itself. The Amanda Lear persona left an impact on European pop culture that has lasted for five decades.
The Sweet Revenge album cover shows Lear as a leather-clad S&M dominatrix cracking her whip, while the sepia-toned back cover pic shows her reclining on an old beer barrel with sequined curtains behind her à la Dietrich in The Blue Angel. The inner sleeve again pictured her topless. {Wikipedia}
