While Tears for Fears 1985 single Everybody Wants to Rule the World was a last-minute addition to their iconic sophomore album, Songs from the Big Chair, all thanks to two chords co-founder Roland Orzabal randomly played on his acoustic guitar for producer Chris Hughes. Songs From the Big Chair is a big and colorful album matched by big production and big hooks steeped in a sentiment of insecurity and fear. Their second album, Songs from the Big Chair, became a runaway success upon its US release in 1985, topping the album charts and matching the UK success of The Hurting with three top five hits of its own, with two of those even reaching 1. And while this isn’t necessarily a false classification, it sells short the musical and emotional wallop that Songs for the Big Chair provides some of the most inspirational and emotionally powerful, not to mention immaculately produced, music of the 80s.
Today’s album, Songs From The Big Chair, is not one of the best-selling albums ever made, but it certainly was successful when it came out.
