Shout - Tears for Fears

Shout

Songs from the Big Chair
80s new wave pop Tears for Fears rock


"Shout" is a song by the British band Tears for Fears. Written by Roland Orzabal and Ian Stanley and sung by Orzabal (with Curt Smith duetting on the chorus), it was the band's eighth single release (the second taken from their second LP Songs from the Big Chair) and sixth UK Top 40 hit, peaking at #4 in January 1985. In the USA, it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on August 3, 1985 and remained there for three weeks. "Shout" would become one of the most successful pop songs of 1985, eventually reaching the Top Ten in 25 countries.


Tears for Fears, named after a phrase found in Arthur Janov's book Prisoners of Pain, is a British pop/rock outfit formed in 1981 in Bath, England. Founder members Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith had been friends since their early teens and had already been in the shortlived ska band Graduate. Initially associated with the new wave and synthesiser bands of the early 1980s, Tears For Fears' earlier work, as evidenced on their 1983 debut album The Hurting , was explicitly based around the emotional angst of adolescence.

Shout - Tears for Fears

Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on - I'm talking to you
Come on

In violent times, you shouldn't have to sell your soul
In black and white, they really, really ought to know
Those one-track minds that took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye - you shouldn't have to jump for joy

You shouldn't have to jump for joy

Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on - I'm talking to you
Come on

They gave you life, and in return you gave them Hell
As cold as ice - I hope we live to tell the tale

I hope we live to tell the tale

Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on - I'm talking to you
Come on

And when you've taken down your guard
If I could change your mind I'd really like to break your heart

I'd really like to break your heart

Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on - I'm talking to you
Come on
