The last time my mind combined the words “Tears for Fears” and “cover” in the same sentence, it was to gush about the “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” cover that The Bad Plus put on their Prog release. Today, there’s definitely something new to gush about in a similar sentence format: Tears for Fears just released an amazing cover of “Ready to Start,” one of my favorite Arcade Fire songs from The Suburbs. The band tweeted out a link to their Soundcloud page with the song; check it out here:
