If you only know Tears for Fears for ‘Shout,’ ‘Head over Heels,’ or that song that used to be on Dennis Miller’s show on HBO, do yourself a favor and go back and listen to The Hurting, and then follow it up with Songs from the Big Chair (you’ll hear the songs you know there). I was in the ‘only know the hits’ category until this week’s roots. I’m glad I’ve progressed to the next level of Tears for Fearsdom. You can hear their influence on a lot of current music. Heck, even Imagine Dragons did a cover of our song of the day.
Be sure to check out our BONUS CONTENT starting at 7:08 for some behind the scenes of us talking more about Tears for Fears and the ‘work’ we’ll have to do to prep for next week’s episode.

Our Roots song of the Day:
Pay close attention to Curt Smith’s fantastically braided mullet stands, and Roland Orzabal’s ultimate white man dance.
