Retro Video Unit (5/1/15)

Friday, Saturday... it all runs together sometimes.

I heard songs by Tears for Fears a couple of times this week, first in a store and then on a TV show, so I figured it was a sign that I should post a video by the band. They were sort of a more eggheadish counterpart to bands like Depeche Mode, with lyrics directly inspired by the work of psychologist Arthur Janov.

The two core members of the band split up after their third album, but reunited in 2000 and continue to tour and record. But I decided to go back to their first album, The Hurting, for this song, "Change." I don't claim to understand what's going on in this video, I just like the song, and the band's music in general.
