Not many better songs for driving in your car than Everbody Wants to Rule the World. Hope their new work is as inspired as their 80's stuff.

I had a period a few months back where all I wanted to do was listen to "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"...that really is a great, great song. I have a memory of being 2 or 3 years old and being at my grandma's house one day, and she had the radio on, and that song was playing. That's the earliest memory I have of hearing that song.

I was also rocking out to "Shout" the other night. That's still possibly one of the coolest songs I've ever heard. And "Head Over Heels", "Sowing The Seeds Of Love"...all good.

I've heard a few songs from their most recent album, too...very interesting stuff-not too bad. Love "Call Me Mellow".

tears for fears. don't like their new one though, it's a bit too in the vein of seeds of love for me. loved their first two albums though.

Break It Down Again is ace - 'Moses on a motorbike' - fantastic.

I used to live in Bath, where TFF are from. Spent 3 years there. I remember that whenever I got really atressed out during my A-levels, I'd go and sit by my window, looking out over the city, listening to TFF. Bliss. Scary fact is that this was 10 years ago!

I lived in a hostel in Bath for a while. One of the staff members there, Ian, went to school with Roland Orzabal at Culverhay. Ian was a member of their original band, Graduate... he chucked it in to go and train to be a social worker!!! His mistake! He was always banging on about it.

Yes, by Gary Jules.
It was number 1 here. I prefer the original!
