''Ultimate Collection'' is the second greatest hits compilation album by the British pop duo Eurythmics, and was released in November 2005. This set preceded (by one week) the re-issuing of all eight Eurythmics back-catalogue albums originally released on the RCA/BMG label. These re-issues include remastered tracks and bonus material. The fact that the ''Ultimate Collection'' was closely connected to these re-issues is also the chief reason for the omission of "Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty-Four)". While that song gave Eurythmics a #4 hit in the UK in 1984 and was later featured on the previous Greatest Hits album released in 1991, it is actually taken from the 1984 Virgin Records soundtrack album 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother), Eurythmics' only album to date not to be released through RCA/BMG.
Unlike 1991's ''Greatest Hits'', ''Ultimate Collection'' contains two newly-recorded songs and all of the tracks have been remastered.</br>And also unlike the 1991 compilation, ''Ultimate Collection'' contains no tracks from the duo's 1989 album, ''We Too Are One''.
One of the new songs recorded for this collection, "I've Got a Life", was released as a single. It entered the UK singles chart at number 14 and spent three weeks at number one on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in the United States.
''Ultimate Collection'' peaked at no.5 on the UK album charts and was later certified Platinum by the BPI. It peaked at no.116 on the US Billboard 200. - Wikipedia
