A suberb, 'soft' rock/pop/light new-wave group from the 80's. They are responsible for such hits like 'I Believe', 'Shout', and 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World', just to name a few. They're thoughtful, oftentimes introspective lyrics and (usually) talented singing and musical prowess helped set them at least a step above many of the bands in the 80's.
Easily one of the best 80's bands, whom just released a new album called Everybody Loves a Happy Ending.

an 80s band who,as previously stated, contributed a lot of hits back in the day.

most notably now, however, was their song "mad world", covered by gary jules for the film donnie darko.
