[Strangers] - Shout (Video)

Tears For Fears album Songs From The Big Chair isn’t one of those recordings that you see regularly cropping up on those Greatest Albums Of All Time lists. In fact ‘regularly’ is probably an over sell. It doesn’t really crop up on any of them, (although it did sneak into one of those 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die books).  Reaching no.1 in the US charts and no.2 in the UK it was a multi-platinum selling record, so somebody somewhere must have liked it. We did. We even had the limited edition extra tracks version on cassette. We could probably sell that on ebay for the price of a packet of crisps now given the devaluing of pop music since the invention of the internet.

Breaking More Waves regulars [Strangers] must also like it because they’ve recently put this cover version of Shout - one of the records highlights - up on line. Apparently they recorded it on a whim at a recording session recently. If you like it you can get the mp3 for free by emailing the band at bornstrangers@gmail.com.
