"Songs from the Big Chair" reissue.

If you're someone of a certain age... I don't know... like 45... this song should bring back some memories.


You probably remember "Shout," one of the many hits from Tears for Fears best selling 1985 album "Songs from the Big Chair." 

To celebrate its 30th anniversary coming up, the album was re-released earlier in this month as a 6-disc box set, complete with new, never-before-released material.

Tears for Fears founders Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith showed up at Southern California Public Radio's studios to chat about their career, creating "Songs from the Big Chair" and what's next for them.
