The first two minutes are the closest thing to an out-of-body experience.

The Best of Tears For Fears! Pure Class!

I love blasting this out of my stereo when driving. When people hear it, at first they are like "...wtf?" then they start loving it! This song is pure awesomeness! Love it!

Wow thought I was the only one that liked this song ... I have to admit when I was 13 I had a fear about letting people know I liked this song because it was not manly enough. LOL I grew up and realized that you create your own fear. Minus natural causes.

Never knew they recorded this in just one straight live take - brilliant!

"Find out... find out... what this fear is about." Tears are streaming down behind my mirrored shades...

Essa música é perfeita. Mais perfeita ainda sendo reproduzida no vinil. <3

Que música maravilhosa!!!

If God exists he helped them to create this masterpiece.

There is just so much going on… rising and falling overlapping melodies, fills, riffs… it’s beautiful chaos.

This is sooo fucking good. Some actual talent and musicianship are things you don't find in pop music today, so I'm thankful for Tears for Fears.

@Robotskill To a certain degree, I'm thankfull that stuff like this isn't written anymore. It keeps it rare and special.
17 Feb 2012, 5:24am
Nobody writes like this anymore. You just have to marvel at it as you unwind it all in your mind. So much of what's written today is just a blast to the package. (sigh)

The drama, the passion, the transition at 1:45 - perfect. Not even the sax can ruin it ;)

Minha, só minha, e não empresto pra ninguém.

Massive. Monolithic. YUGE!

......loved this band, especially their first album, saw them at Leeds University on March 17th, 1983, the day after U2 played there. Ticket cost £3.00 (U2 was £3.50).......what a weekend!!!! Amazing what you remember......can't remember an hour ago now!!! lol

The production of this song is pure perfection. It simply kicks ass on a high quality stereo. Nowadays most songs sound like shit.
6 Sep 2011, 9:01am
chills down my spine each time.... soul of the 80s
2 Sep 2011, 6:03pm
Love that sax...especially at the intro, when you can HEAR the keys he's pressing down. That's authenticity.

The lenght of the original tracks, found on Songs from and some cd's, is 6.31. The 5.32 version fades out before William kicks in with the last solo.

This song changed my life and I´m eternaly gratefull for that. Can listen to this a 1000 times a day, will never bore me. Best song ever, nr 1.
2 May 2011, 8:01pm
I agree with nemu, this could probably be my favorite by them as well. Never get tired of hearing it. I used to love just driving down the road somewhere, even if I had no destination, just listening to this tune, it just flows so smoothly.... Never tire of it.
1 May 2011, 5:54am
Probably my favorite by them as a whole. Definitely my fave off of SftBC!
15 Apr 2011, 7:07pm
This song is a lesson for life! <3
11 Mar 2011, 3:54pm
I was OUT OF MY MIND to let this show pass by. Even after all these years it must have been fantastic.
4 Feb 2011, 10:37am
An awesome classic and one of my highlights from SftBC.
14 Jan 2011, 7:16am
THESE THINGS. THAT I'VE. BEEN TOLD. CAN REARRANGE, MY WORLD. MY DOUBT. IN TIME, BUT INSIDE OUT. THIS IS THE WORKING HOUR!

*dances like rick astley to the song intro*
9 Nov 2010, 8:46pm
percussion? check. sax? check. Let me say it again: Instrumental interludes from 80's bands R-O-C-K.
5 Nov 2010, 3:32pm
I'd forgotten all about this track. How dare I? Such fond memories, classic.
8 Oct 2010, 10:22pm
reminds of me when i was ten ....

Coming to Atlantic City, I may have to go and see them again. This is one of my absolute favorite songs of all time. I never get tired of it.
20 May 2010, 8:38am
Best song from an incredible album!!
13 May 2010, 6:23pm
Could possibly be one of my absolute favorite songs of all time. This song is just so beautiful, how can you NOT fall completely, and madly in love with it?
11 May 2010, 6:15pm
