The Other Half of Tears for Fears at 50
As noted here on Tunesmate, one half of the duo Tears for Fears — Curt Smith — turned 50 back on June 24. A little less than two months later, it’s time for the other half to turn 50. Roland Orzabal, who is featured on lead vocals above on “Sowing the Seeds of Love,” which hit number 2 back in 1989, hits the half-century mark today. Orzabal, in fact, has greater claim to the name Tears for Fears than Smith. When the duo split for a little over a decade following the Seeds of Love album, Orzabal continued to release music under the band’s name.
