Song Of The Day

Song Of The Day: Tears For Fears, “I Love You But I’m Lost”

While they’ve had their fair share of Greatest Hits records and reissues, Rule The World, the latest Tears For Fears collection almost feels like a reintroduction to a long-dormant group. In a way, that’s exactly what it is; after a decade away, they’ve spent the year out on the road on a highly successful world tour. While the album is made up of wonderful songs that will be instantly recognizable for people who know the band, it is the inclusion of two new songs that really makes this collection an appealing buy. The best of the lot, lead single “I Love You But I’m Lost,” is an up-tempo pop number, one that falls nicely in the Maroon 5 or Coldplay or Adam Lambert style of music–grandiose, yet with a catchy melody, a pumping beat and a great lyric. Although the song doesn’t sound too much like the hits on the rest of Rule The World, it’s still quite enjoyable in its way. Tears For Fears were always a pop band at heart, and this new number is simply the sound of a masterful duo updating its style for a contemporary setting, and that, my friend, is quite rewarding.

Rule The World: The Greatest Hits is available now from Universal Music Enterprises
