Features "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" and "Shout!"
Tears for Fears' biggest-selling album Songs From The Big Chair was their second record, and the 10 million-selling disc marked a transition in the band's sound, catapulting them into international prominence.
As a group, Tears for Fears led the "Second British Invasion" of pop music in the mid-1980s in both the U.S. and Europe with songs from the album that dominated the radio airwaves. In the U.S., "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" led the Songs from the Big Chair single releases, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1985. "Shout" was the band's second single and stayed at No. 1 for three weeks. The album inevitably went straight to No. 1, selling 5 million copies in the U.S. alone.
