Back in the eighties when I had just started writing songs Tears for Fears released this song, I have to say that it is not my favourite Tears for Fears song. My favourite is Everyone Wants To Rule The World, but this comes damn close. Since it came out it has become probably one of their most covered songs, and the cover version by Gary Jules is one of my favourites. It lays bare the lyrics and in someway brings the words home.
It has been a long time since those wonderful days and it is a long time since I have seen Curt Smith on anything but I just saw him on YouTube singing with his daughter and loved it so much I though that I should share it.
There is a good interview here on YouTube that you also may like to watch they also talk about the Gary Jules version
