Tears For Fears – Another Great Band Rooted in the Eighties
Tears for Fears arrived in the video era as bonified superstars, producing songs such as Everybody Wants to Rule the World, and Shout. To this day, both songs are played on the radio, at sporting events, nightclubs, and in cars and bedrooms across the world.
Roland Orzabal commands one of the greatest voices in new wave, adult alternative, or whatever genre you wish to place them.
Check out some of Tears for Fears’ best work below:
Tears for Fears – Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Everybody Wants to Rule the World comes with a cool video to match a great song. Most everybody identifies with the song’s theme. We all know our life won’t last forever, but we want to kick a little ass while we’re around. Love the guitar riffs and how the song sounds fresh and relevant decades later.
Tears for Fears – Shout
I love the rage, desperation, drive, honesty, and power of Shout. To driving musical instruments, Roland Orzabal wails, shouts, and sings from the depths of his lungs. Shout!
Tears for Fears – Woman in Chains (featuring Oleta Adams)
The bass in the intro is fabulous.
Roland Orzabal and Oleta Adams are both terrific singers, so their songs together are a great treat.
