    Tears for Fears - 'Head Over Heels'

    http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=18164

    "Head Over Heels" was the tenth UK single release from Tears for Fears, and it scored them their eighth UK Top 40 hit. It is one of five hit singles from their third album Songs from the Big Chair.

    The album Songs from the Big Chair takes its name from the 1976 American TV drama series Sybil, in which the title character, suffering from psychiatric problems stemming from child abuse, seeks refuge in her therapist's "big chair." For those of you who missed it, Sybil was based on the controversial book about a woman who was supposed to have had 16 different personalities. The TV series was pretty much the campiest, most-over-the-top portrayal of mother-daughter dysfunction since Mommie Dearest. Orzabal and Smith stated that they based this title choice solely on the concept that the songs on the album were so varied, that they all had different personalities all their own.

    The song "Broken" precedes this song on the album, and is played both before and after this song in concerts, as it was originally composed as a segue into "Broken."

    There are two versions of this song out there. The shorter version ends on a cold stop. The longer version is known as the "preacher version," because it opens with Roland Orzabal reciting the lyrics from their song "I Believe" as if delivering a sermon.

    Ripe for parody, in 2008 a "literal" version appeared on YouTube which contains dubbed lyrics that poke fun at the video's visuals. See that here.

    The song featured in the 2001 movie Donnie Darko during a scene where a camera flies around the school. Director Richard Kelly said on the DVD commentary that the scene in which the tune was used was written and choreographed specifically with the song in mind.

    If you ever get depressed - crank this song up to ten, listen closely to the words and you will feel better in no time. Saw this band at a Bill Graham all-night New Year's Eve show at Winterland in SF around 1970. Sons of Champlin - 'Freedom'

    He has a little bit of a Carlos Santana vibe going on there. Very cool!

    I just saw him here in LA he is as good as it gets to me, so tasty and he sounded and played great. I sure hope he has figured it out and is sober now. The road is a hard place to be drinking and using.
