Song of the Day: 'Shout' by Tears for Fears

Order HERE.

Thought it was fitting that "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" came on the radio -- back when songs you actually wanted to hear were played on the radio -- as my pals Yuki, Deanna and I pulled out of the parking lot at Dobson High after rehearsal for graduation in early June 1985. Now a new book explains what the band was all about:
You already know that Tears for Fears' hugely catchy, emotionally resonant hits made it one of the most interesting bands of the ‘80s and ‘90s. But you may not know that their work is based on the theories of a charismatic L.A. psychologist. In "Shout to Change," Dan Friedman explains the fascinating underpinnings of Tears for Fears songs. You'll look at Tears for Fears with new eyes — and listen with new ears.
