One of my favorite songs ever, “Everybody Wants To Rule the World” by Tears For Fears, covered by Brothertiger. Check it out below.
The Brooklyn-based synthpopper is recording a full-album cover of Tears For Fears’ 1985 classic Songs From The Big Chair for Reimagine Music, a label that recruits contemporary indie-rockers to cover the classics. The full Brothertiger Plays Songs From The Big Chair arrives next month, and today, Brothertiger is sharing his rendition of the world-conquering “Everybody Wants To Rule The World.” It’s faithful without being slavish, a reimagining in the truest sense of the word.
