Change - Tears for Fears

Released in February 1983, 'Change' was a number 3 hit for Tears for Fears in the UK. The song also gave the band their first charting single in America when it cracked the Billboard Top 75 in August 1983. Roland Orzabal commented about the song: 'It's not really about much. It's just one of those cheap pop lyrics.'

The real rarity on this single is the B-side. 'The conflict' was never released on cd as far as I know. It describes a conflict between two individuals. Sung by Curt Smith, this is one of the few songs in the Tears for Fears catalogue on which he shares a writing credit.

My collection: 7" single no. 910
Found: Parkpop, Den Haag, June 25, 1989
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Change' / 'The conflict'
