Tears For Fears is back

Remember Tears For Fears? I do!

Bought all the first albums in the 80s (vinyl of course): The Hurting, Songs from the Big Chair, etc.

A Beatles feeling, but in an original way…

And they’re back ! Older and wiser… The Tipping Point was released in October 2021, with many singles released on their own since then.

Tears For Fears - The Tipping Point

Work on the album began in 2013, but the process proved difficult for band members Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. The band were asked by their (then) management company to collaborate with various younger artists in an attempt to create a more contemporary and commercial sounding album. However, these sessions (which the band themselves likened to « speed dating ») were not entirely successful, resulting in an album which, as Orzabal later put it, sounded « less like a Tears For Fears album ».

Rodger Hodgson – The Logical Song

« The Logical Song » is a song by English rock group Supertramp that was released as the lead single from their album Breakfast in America in March 1979. It was written primarily by the band’s Roger Hodgson, who based the lyrics on his experiences being sent away to boarding school for ten years. The song became Supertramp’s biggest hit.

So many memories… I was in Canada when I received this album as a gift from a label representative in 1980.
