Hello Music lovers,
I looked up some info on Tears for Fears the other day. A well known 80s British New Wave band, I really didn’t even know what songs were theirs on the radio. Now I know stuff like Shout and Everybody Wants to Rule the World is them!
The latter is stuck in my mind from an old-timey version that played on a phonograph in a video game - Bioshock Infinite. I searched a bunch of related covers, and found one from a familiar artist named Andy McKee.
An acoustic guitarist, he’s known for his percussive and intricate arrangements. I have the Everybody Wants to Rule the world cover for you here, but there are a ton of great originals out there too!

This Tears for Fears cover is beautifully arranged on acoustic guitar.
Last Week’s Video:
Fade to Black - Metallica
Number 12 on VH1s Top Anthems, this live performance of Fade to Black is pretty awesome.
