I figured we didn't have an official Tears for Fears thread, so why not make one. Of course everybody knows there huge hits such as the song below:



But Tears for Fears has a lot of other great songs. They were predominantly big in the 80's, but did release a few albums in the 90's.

I've really been enjoying their greatest hits album which has songs that not everyone may know such as a few below:

Head Over Heels:
[GROOVESHARK]15180115[/GROOVESHARK]

Woman In Chains:
[GROOVESHARK]14699668[/GROOVESHARK]

Suffer the Children:
[GROOVESHARK]10705409[/GROOVESHARK]

Anyways, what are your thoughts on the band?

Awesome! One of my mom's favorite bands (or duos) . I never really got too much into their stuff besides the "classics" though. :)

Ah well you should check them out more. They do have some good stuff that I didn't know about outside of the classics.

I like them well enough. I'm a big fan of The Human League and they have a similar sound IMO. :grinthumb

The song that I first remember hearing from TFF was Shout. I liked
it the first time I heard it and it is still one of my 2 or 3 favorites by them.
I was never a big fan of the band, but I did like a few of their tunes.

Another song I really got into from them came out back in the late 80's, the title track from their third album... The Seeds of Love




Ok, yeah yeah, it's not a true by-the-book 'title track' as the album is
called "The Seeds of Love" and the song is "Sowing the Seeds of Love",
but close enough.

Re: The "Official" Tears for Fears thread

another song that it seems to have fallen between the cracks is a song off of their first album, Mad World. The song was re-made by Gary Jules in 2000 (or 2001) for the movie Donnie Darko. That remake was a bit slower and more acoustic. Also a good version, but I'll always remember the TFF original


Mad World

I only have Songs From The Big Chair, but I still play that album once in a while.

This edition sounds excellent.:tup:
