Biography

Who'd have believed it? With its deliberate storybook-inspired title, Everybody Loves A Happy Ending signals a welcome return for Tears For Fears - one of the biggest and best-loved bands of the post-MTV age-and one of the most unexpected reunions in pop music history.

"This is the album that should have followed Seeds Of Love in many ways," says singer-songwriter Roland ... Read more in Amazon's Tears For Fears Store

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! International edition of the 1992 compilation from the British duo. Originally lumped in with the many other Synth Pop duos of the early '80s, TFF were always far more intelligent and thought-provoking than their contemporaries. By the time of their second album, Songs From The Big Chair, in 1984, the world caught up with them and they became international superstars. 12 tracks including 'Change', 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World', 'Head Over Heels', 'Mad World', 'Mothers Talk', 'Pale Shelter', 'Shout', 'Sowing The Seeds Of Love' and more. Universal.

Possibly the kitschiest band of the '80s (as Joy Division was for the '70s), Tears for Fears turned out a small treasury of well-crafted songs during their heyday and helped to define a genre that everybody recognizes, but nobody can name. "John Hughes movie pop" comes close, but somebody should find something more apt. Tears Fall Down collects all their best and adds a scattering of good album cuts. The original albums will still hold some delights after this, but they won't be required listening. If you want more Tears for Fears, check out their strong, though underappreciated, later work like 1996's Saturnine Martial & Lunatic. --Gavin McNett

Great selection of songs.

It's very difficult to be original in the music world or anywhere, but Tears for Fears has indeed put out an original piece of work here.

I can probably count the worthy "new" songs on greatest hits packages on one hand, and this inclusion is easily the best I've heard.

When most people think of "Tears for Fears" what likely comes to mind is the song "Shout", or maybe "Everybody Wants to Rule the World", two huge 80's pop hits. While I loved both of those songs, the band was far more diverse than that. This CD is a collection of the bands greatest hits, and every track is worth the price. There is a wide range of music and messages. Their early work, which includes "Pale Shelter", and "Mad World", both contain powerful lyrics at the heart of the duo's attempts at coming to terms with their childhood issues. The songs both still sound fresh today, nearly 20 years after being recorded. "Change", another song from that first album is typical 80s Rock and Roll, new wave style. I especially like their later work including the soulful "Woman in Chains" with Oleta Adams sharing the lead singing, and the Beatles inspired "Sowing the Seeds of Love". Another gem is the deep "I Believe", a beautiful song. Both Roland Orzabel and Curt Smith are talented musicians and have excellent voices, and the band has some other great hidden talent in Nicky Holland, and Oleta Adams, both of whom put out great solo discs. Overall, this CD is a collection of one of the high profile 80's bands best work. Great music, with lyrics about a mile deeper than most of the new wave 80s fluff.

I bought this CD three years age, long after this group's heyday and I became a fan of them instantly. This is the best hits compilation I,ve ever bought. Many people think of Shout or Everybody Wants To Rule The World when they think of TFF. While I love these songs their music spans beyond just these two songs. You'll be surprised at the changes in their sound from their Hurting Days. Pale Shelter, and Mad World are your typical but above average early 80s new wave songs. Change is a standout song from this period. Such a well produced pop song. The fuzz buzz running from 2:38 to 2:57 is amazing. The new single on here is a hard rock edged Laid So Low. This song is a rerecorded version of Tears Roll Down from the brilliant yet underrated Saturnine Martial Lunatic CD. The next surpise is the Beatles sounding Sowing The Seeds Of Love. Rolands songwriting` producing, and Curts voice and musicianship all come together to create a brilliant 6 and a half minute song. This is their most colorful song they,ve ever done with lots of horns and trumpets. The other surprise is the soulful Woman In Chains and Advice For The Young At Heart. Woman In Chains is a beautiful song with Oleta Adams singing backup and emotional well written lyrics. Her voice is breathtaking. The Final Cut on this compilation, Advice For The Young is a great closer to this album. It's very soulful with the Jazzy pianos mixed with guitars and organs it's my favorite on this album. I highly recommend that you get this CD. It will be in your CD player alot. Even if you have the parent albums this CD is still worth getting just for the new single Laid So Low(Tears Roll Down). It's worth the money.

If you're looking for a random assortment of songs from one of the best of the 1980s popular groups, this is a five-star album. Compared to much of the hackneyed lyrics and synthesized murk of that era, Tears for Fears offers memorable vocals and first-rate music -- they still sound great, and the recordings were pure digital.
But each of their albums seems to work more effectively in its original sequence, and there was not enough chaff on 'Songs from the Big Chair' to make the usual 'greatest hits' filter necessary or even desirable. 'The Hurting' also stands on its own, and the tracks from the 'Seeds of Love' album really do not complement any of earlier songs. If you enjoy Tears for Fears, buy 'Songs from the Big Chair'. It is probably a modern classic. I cannot say anything terribly negative about the 'Tears Roll Down' CD because I own it and listen to it on occasion. Still, TFF is one of the rare modern musicial teams to produce albums that are especially cohesive, making this greatest hits collection sound like a sort of random arrangement.

You know the problem with most "greatest hits" albums; some suits at the record company sans clues choose just the "hits" and leave many fan favorites, or some songs that should be automatically included are mysteriously absent. That said, this greatest hits is one of the best I have encountered. Tears for Fears was always so much more than just their singles, and non-hits like "I Believe" and "Advice for the Young at Heart" (a #1 song in a perfect world) make this collection indispensable. The real icing on the cake, however, is the new song included here, "Laid So Low." Whenever a band puts a "new" song on a greatest hits CD, it's usually something they scraped off of the bottom of their trash can at home and threw it on tape. I can probably count the worthy "new" songs on greatest hits packages on one hand, and this inclusion is easily the best I've heard. "Laid So Low," with its dynamite lyrics and propulsive beat is one of the top three songs EVER from TFF, and makes this collection a must-have for anyone who likes literate pop.
