Tears For Fears – “Head Over Heels” (Richard Skinner BBC Session) (Stereogum Premiere)

Next week, the British new romantic duo Tears For Fears will release a massive six-disc reissue of Songs From The Big Chair, their enormously successful 1985 album. The deluxe reissue will include a pile of unreleased music, including the track you can hear below. “Head Over Heels” is one of many of the original album’s big hits, and it’s a perfectly gleaming example of state-of-the-art ’80s synthpop. The group recorded the version below as part of a live-in-studio session for the British broadcaster Richard Skinner. Listen below.

That Songs From The Big Chair reissue is out 11/11 on UMe.
