It Came From The 80's - 1985: Tears For Fears "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"

In 1985, Tears For Fears had the most successful album of their career with "Songs From The Big Chair", their second long player. 

"Everybody Wants To Rule The World" was the first U.S. single from this British Band and it went all the way to #1 in June of 1985 on the Billboard Hot 100.  The follow-up single, "Shout", did just as well two months later, also hitting #1.  A third single, "Head Over Heels", also hit the Top 5 later that year.
