“Shout” Tears for Fears Review

Tense mall music at its finest

Today’s review is “Shout”, the 1984 (85 in the US) single from Tears for Fears.

This song is so good.

Both lyrically and musically, the song is minimalist, yet still feels massive.

The lyrics follow the same cryptic melancholy of most of Tears for Fears’ hits from their Song from the Big Chair album. You actually want to shout along to the song, which is odd since the chorus isn’t actually shouted.

Musically, the song is a synthy wonder. It feels massive, and has a church-industry feel to it. There’s even organ!

At this point you already know what I’m giving this song.

Grade: A+
