Song of the Week: “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears

Title: Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Artist: Tears for Fears

Release: June 1985

Peak Chart Position: #1

Did You Know: Tears for Fears has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. That’s enough albums to reach from Earth to the planet formally known as Pluto! Twice! Although the song’s title might suggest otherwise, a recent Gallup Poll showed that only two percent of Americans actually wanted to rule the world. That’s less than the percent of Americans who still support Herman Cain for President. Politics! Pizza! Planets that aren’t planets! 80’s music!
