80s Music Video Flashback

Tears For Fears - "Head Over Heels"

Tears for Fears (sometimes informally abbreviated to TFF) has sold more than 22 million albums worldwide (including over 8 million in the United States alone) and mainly consists of members Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Head Over Heels, from the album Songs From The Big Chair, topped out in the UK at #12, US at #3, Ireland at #5, and Canada at #8). The promotional clip for "Head over Heels", filmed in June 1985, was the fourth Tears for Fears clip directed by famed music video producer Nigel Dick. It is centered around Roland Orzabal's attempts to get the attention of a librarian (played by Canadian model Joan Densmore), while a variety of characters (many played by the rest of the band) take part in shenanigans in the library. The video was filmed at the Emmanuel College Library in Toronto, Canada. In 2008, Tears for Fears will perform in Germany in November and December, at the 'Night of the Proms'.
