Tears For Fears’ 1984 Songs from the Big Chair album was one of the most successful albums from any band in the ’80s. It produced two number one songs on the Hot 100 charts with Shout and Everybody Wants To Rule the World. And, Head Over Heels, the last single released from the album was also a huge success peaking at number three on the Hot 100 charts in 1985.
Roland Orzabel, co-founder of the band said, “Head Over Heels is basically a romantic love song and one of the most simple tracks that Tears for Fears have ever recorded. It is a romance song that goes a bit perverse at the end.”
