Tears for Fears, named after a phrase found in Arthur Janov's book Prisoners of Pain, is a British pop/rock outfit formed in 1981 in Bath, England. Founder members Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith had been friends since their early teens and had already been in the shortlived ska band Graduate. Initially associated with the new wave and synthesiser bands of the early 1980s, Tears For Fears' earlier work, as evidenced on their 1983 debut album The Hurting , was explicitly based around the emotional angst of adolescence. The album reached number one in the UK and contained three UK Top 5 singles.

Thoughts on Songs with Tears for Fears
1 year ago
So...I know little or next to nothing about song writing...I was in hs in the 80's so I didn't even have most of the words correct to my then fav songs.....but I'll give this a shot. (...because I have seen TFF 3 times live and had every LP...so that makes me the expert into their songs...um not)....but I think or feel the song is about marriage....a long marriage that has hit that spot...the spot where the couple have been together for many years and things are sort of dull at the moment. Lyrics say to me, marriage is dull...but I love you and don't want the marriage to end....but what the hell do we do now? There...my tiny thoughts.
