Even if you’re a cynic and you hate the eighties, this is one of those songs that will just make you go awww.
That was one of the bright young things on FBI last week. It was “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears, which is a song that makes me go ewww, but he was playing a cover version by some kids from America who had breakfast once with Sufjam Stevens or something, so it was all breathy girl vocals and lush strings and actually sounded a lot like Shelleyan Orphan, if you remember them and I think you do. It’s a terrible song but I just love what he said about the eighties and cynicism. I think I could look at it for days.
