This is an amazing song! The build up towards the end is something that no other band can replicate!
The lyrics are so meaningful, too... I am so surprised that this is only no.5...
Great punk anthem. In-your-face. "I'm talking to you, come on. "
Not as good as everybody wants to rule the world
Certainly one of the best, and most iconic, songs of the 1980's.
Always gets me singing along, and the other half now I have her into it!

Tears For Fears goes Sgt. Pepper
Takes me back to the 'good old days' of Thatcherite Britain & the sad demise of The JamV 2 Comments
This song is a masterpiece. It's just so well-crafted, how everything builds to the end, and the lyrics are truly poignant. Musical genius.
Shares a message and just brings you into the zone of sadness, the zone you didn't know existed.
Gorgeous song with great lyrics. "So free her! So free her! "
Incredible emotional songV 2 Comments
That guitar - xylophone combo is badass. Their best melody, pwoerful hook and therefor my favourite TfF song.

Great sax. Great vocals. Great emotion.V 4 Comments

Song represents the times about nuclear war. Chilling and romantic at the same time.V 1 Comment
Yeah - possibly one of the greatest songs ever written..
Every second of this one is pure bliss. Possibly one of the greatest songs ever written.
Another song with a great ending.
A song featured on 2 Rockstar Games and also one of my personal favorites. Why isn't this higher up on the list?
This is literally one of the best songs I've ever heard! Truly unique and very 80's. It's great! IT WAS ON Grand Theft Auto: VICE CITY TOO
Very underrated genius
I can't understand why this song isn't higher on their best of list?
It's a classic!
Love the way Roland and Oleta's vocals wrap around each other in this one!
Nice shift from typical TFF style. I love the "mirrorman" concept.
Out of all of their songs, this one has the sickest beat.
Put your head right next to my heart the beat so sexy just like the other commentV 3 Comments
Guitar leads and amazing melody make this one my number one.
By all means my favorite. The live feel it's given on the album and the live versions are amazing. You just don't want it to end.
I have no idea what this song is about, but it is so expressive and so passionate.
How is this #23 this song is perfect roland nailed probably in my top 10 - OasisFeelsLove
Haunting, ear worm that you that you don't mind getting stuck in your head.
Nice piece of song. Much more an Orzabal's solo effort but still worth.
Amazing vocal on this one by Orzabal though it sounds like Curt Smith.
I love this song! Should be in the top ten
I have the LP. Just played this for first time in years. This track could stand up today, it is beautiful in its majestyV 1 Comment
