155. Tears For Fears - Break It Down Again

Found On: Elemental (1993)

Notice that cover? Curt Smith left Tears For Fears in the early '90s and Roland Orzabal carried on. I don't blame you if you don't notice (or miss) Smith's absence on this memorable, propulsive hit. Also notable: The lyrics are not nearly as pretentious as everyone had come to expect ("Moses on a motorbike" anyone?).

Wrong. I do miss Curt Smith's contribution here. Have you ever their early stuff? A lot of them feature Curt as the lead and they are fantastic. Mad World? Pale Shelter? Change? All great songs.

Anyway, I like this song, too. :P
