Songs From The Big Chair

Posted in music by adeli on July 30, 2008

On this day in 1985, the No. 1 Billboard Pop Hit was “Shout’‘ by Tears for Fears.

The song was the second straight No. 1 from Songs from the Big Chair, the duo’s most successful album. The album ran only a little over 40 minutes, and garnered four hits.

Below, the tracks as they appeared in the original recording. Click on the song names to watch a video or performance of the song.

1. Shout
2. The Working Hour
3. Everybody Wants to Rule the World
4. Mothers Talk
5. I Believe
6. Broken
7. Head over Heels/Broken (Live)
8. Listen

The next tune was not on this album, but it’s one of my favorites from the duo’s later hits:
