Remember this Tears for Fears hit from 1985?


It came on the radio today as the fifteen-year-old was Driving Miss Melisa home (still working on those learner’s permit hours!), and when he heard it, he let out some kind of primitive grunt noise: “UH!”

“What?” I said.

“This song. What a sucky remake!”

I shook my head as I explained to him that the one he and his father immensely enjoy is, in fact, the sucky remake*:

*Okay, I’ll admit that I do like the version by Disturbed also, but I just wasn’t going to let him have that one.
