Because mother fuckin’ Tears For Fears get their OWN blog post. Period.
As soon as I got up this morning and saw several articles about this song, there wasn’t a question of what I would do… a computer would be stolen temporarily and a blog post would be written for these dudes.
Well I’m not sure that I had to go to such drastic measures, but I did manage to borrow a laptop and bring you this AMAZING cover. To say I love Tears For Fears is probably an understatement. These guys defined 80’s music for me. They managed to create a somewhat fun musical vibe, with more intellectual lyrical content. Brilliant.
Here is what Tears For Fears had to say about doing this cover..
“Having appreciated artists like Kanye West, Katy Perry, Kimbra, Nas, Gary Jules/Michael Andrews, Adam Lambert & Dizzee Rascal covering & sampling our songs over the past years, we agreed that some reciprocal cross-generational love was in order. We decided to give Arcade Fire a twist of TFF. Enjoy.”
Check out this amazing song below.
