Tears For Fears do up Arcade Fire

So there I am perusing the interwebs, as I do, and I fell right into the arms of the Tears For Fears official website. Guess what I found right there on the front page?

Tears For Fears covering Arcade Fire’s “Ready To Start” (from their 2010 album The Suburbs).

The first listen I was okay with and then came the second, third and now it won’t leave my brain cavity!

It sort of makes sense really. I have always regarded Tears For Fear’s Song from The Big Chair (’85) & The Seeds of Love (’89) two of the best poprock albums to come out of the 80’s. 

It’s refreshing to hear their take on a modern rock hit. Good on ya Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith…this track will be with me all day or even longer!

You should take a listen…..
