Tears For Fears – Head Over Heels (album: songs from the big chair 1985)

This next song is by Tears for Fears. My Brother’s favourite band. Growing up I remember for years and years my brother use to listen to their music. He is probably their biggest fan! their songs were always playing in the background. It’s almost like they were part of our house.

A few years after in the late 90’s my brother went on a trip to London. As he was waiting for his train to arrive he saw Roland Orzabal passing by with his Wife and kids. Of course my brother decided not to approach him because he wanted him to have his privacy and since he admired him so much he didn’t want to upset him.  This is just an unbelievable coincidence! I know he will remember this experience for the rest of his life. Now what are my chances to bump into Chris Cornell while I’m grocery shopping at Coles?!?

I can’t really go on without mentioning anything about the horrendous earthquake and Tsunami that struck Japan. My thoughts are with the Japanese that were affected by this disaster. The world is going completely mad and I’m really starting to believe that the Maya prophecy about the end of the world in 2012 is coming true. Let’s hope they were wrong, otherwise we don’t have much time on earth and that’s a very scary thought! Check out this beautiful song by Tears for Fears...

Lyrics: Head over Heels Lyrics

What’s this song about?
It is basically a love song and one of the simplest tracks that Tears for Fears have ever recorded. It is a love song that goes a bit perverse at the end.
—Roland Orzabal.
