Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith founded Tears for Fears in the early 80s. After doing time in a synthpop influenced group called Gradute they struck out on their own. Success followed soon after with their debut offering "The Hurting" in 1983. That album reached #1 in the UK and yielded several UK top ten hits.

In 1985 they released Songs from the Big Chair which became a huge hit. It spent 5 weeks at #1 in the US and videos for "Shout", "Everbody Wants to Rule the World" and the song featured here, "Head over Heels", spent many months in heavy rotation on MTV. The melodic richness of this song grabbed me from the get-go and it remains one of my all time 80s favorites.
