“Missionary Man” is a song by the British pop music duo Eurythmics. It was taken from their sixth album, Revenge, and continued the band’s rock/R&B musical style of the time and featured Jimmy Zavala on harmonica.
In the band’s native UK, it was the fourth single to be taken from the album and peaked at number 31. It was more successful in the United States, where it was the first single to be taken from the album and peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 (becoming their last main US Top 20 hit to date). It also made the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart, and it received extensive airplay on American rock radio, reaching number 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks, Eurythmics’ only song to top this chart. The single was also a top ten hit in Australia, where it was released as the second single from the album.
“Missionary Man” earned Eurythmics a 1986 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal
