Classic Track(s) of Day – Tears for Fears

1982  Mercury  2328

1982 Mercury 2328

If there were a genre’ for 80’s synth-pop standards this band would be Sinatra.  Synth programming was taken to the next level by Tears for Fears.  It’s curious when music journalists often forget about Tears  when citing infamous duos of rock – Nevermind White Stripes,  Yaz,  Pet Shop Boys, The Carpenters and Buckingham/Nicks – Roland Orzabal and Kurt Smith were a global  hit machine.  Inspired  by goth’s rich underground,  (Shout to Nako and Emily!) ‘Change‘ should  be placed in the next Sprint commercial – and the 1982’s ‘Pale Shelter‘  is  pure Goth-Pop heaven.  Little did the yuppies know how depressed these dudes were.  Their hits funded the no-wave explosion.  (Along w/ Journey and Rush!)
