#59. "Shout" - Tears For Fears (1985)

The first of four to appear on this list from Tears For Fears, you could always count on them to release strong singles. 

Following the success of a trio of synth-pop songs from their debut album The Hurting, the release of "Shout" showed the band could rock it as well. 

"Shout" embraces the big production of the 80s with a six minute build that progressively adds more instruments, more singers, and more passion. 

The iconic guitar riff and the big fat, final chorus could have lasted another minute or two with no complaints here. 

I remember everyone at least liked this song, or was it that no one hated it.

  1. I liked it at the time but gradually liked it less and less, I can still listen to it however.
