There hasn’t been a band that melded psychology, philosophy, and a love of the Beatles as successfully as Tears for Fears. Primarily known for their hit single, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” Tears for Fears has survived break-ups and bad business deals, creating a body of work that runs the gamut from synth-pop to full blown progressive rock. In this instalment of Songs in the Key of X, Jeffery X Martin takes us through his five favorite Tears for Fears songs in his teeny-tiny, not-on-the-radio radio show. Links to the full songs can be found below. It’s some of the most fun one can have talking about severe depression!
