Tears For Fears

YUP! The 80's are back and a lot of bands from our our youth are making a comeback.

It seems to me that I have seen more 80's bands now that in my youth (but then I didnt have a job or money then)

My friend and I went through the whole Tears For Fears-youtube gallery of videos a last year back and realized that this band had good songs after all and agreed to see them live if we got a chance, They will play sometime this year here in So.Cal

Any TFF fans out there?


Here is current news about them

Damn fine band. Probably my favorite group that gets bunched in with the rest of the new wave genre. You can tell, going all the way back to The Hurting, that there was particularly great songwriting at play, and the songs have aged well because of that.

Some of my favorite tracks of theirs:

Pale Shelter
Head Over Heels
Advice For The Young At Heart
Break It Down Again

I agree that the songs have aged VERY WELL, even though their earlier stuff was quite depressing and being that I was young it affected me somehow, anyway
I like Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Pale Shelter, Seeds OF Love among others

Can't wait to finally see them live

Love them, have seen them 2 or 3 times, have met them once.

TFF

I pretty much love every song off the first three albums: The Hurting, Songs From THe Big Chair, The Seeds Of Love. Roland kind of lost me around Raoul And The Kings Of Spain, but I thought Everybody Loves A Happy Ending was a really fun, enjoyable album, even if not as great as their 80's output.

A few standout tracks in Fitz's opinion:

Year Of The Knife
Swords And Knives
Standing On The Corner Of The Free World
Badman's Song (AMAZING pop-jazz worthy of Steely Dan comparisons)
Listen
I Believe
The Working Hour
Ideas As Opiates
Watch Me Bleed
The Prisoner
The Way You Are
Memories Fade
Pharoahs

Roland still has a great voice

^wat.

I appreciate TFF. Cue Zoots!

Definitely one of the bands on my "need to look into futher" list though. I like quite a few of their songs, but I've never gotten past their greatest hits and Songs From The Big Chair.

I love this band.
Woman In Chains has to be listen to with headphones, great song.
Everybody Wants To Rule The World always puts me in a happy mood.
