It comes from the movie The Breakfast Club.

This is one of those songs that still stands the tests of time, and one of those songs I definitely recommend listening to.
Michael Kerner
This is good music that had truth, made sense and you could sing along with it and it made you smile.

I first heard this song over the closing credits for the 1985 movie "Real Genius." I was hooked on it immediately and became an instant fan of the British group Tears for Fears. Curt Smith, one of the founders of Tears for Fears, described the song: "The concept is quite serious – it's about everybody wanting power, about warfare and the misery it causes." That fit perfectly with the theme of Real Genius and was a great way to end the film.

For me, it was one of the most rousing, spirited songs from the 1980s, and it's still on my MP3 playlists.

When it has came down to duo's from the 80's, we think of only one or two that come to mind. Hall & Oates definitively, because of longevity and great songs. But that can be also said with the duo of Roland and Curt, better known as Tears For Fears. What they did back in the 80's with one huge album, Songs From The Big Chair is define 80's pop music, and the rhythm that still has stood the test of time. While the group broke up in the 90's, and Roland made music as Tears For Fears by himself, the loss definitely hit. But there are still very few songs that still define them and that generation like Everybody Wants To Rule The World. The song is definitely a pop delight that still ignites. I still love listening to it just as much today, as I did back when I was a child. This is one of those songs that still stands the tests of time, and one of those songs I definitely recommend listening to.

Song: B+

Tears For Fears is a iconic 80s band. Their hits still stand up today and continue to be remade. This is one of those songs that succeed in doing this. It is not as haunting as Mad World or Bombastic as Shout but it represents all that was good with Tears For Fears. The lyrics are easy to understand and it has a chorus that everyone will sing along too. Must have for a 80s hit collection.

I loved this song when it came out, and still, decades later, love hearing it. I find different meanings in the ambiguity of the lyrics. Must have.
