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.

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.

A hip band from the 80s. Featuring Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal. Responsible for hits such as the notorious "Mad World" which was unfortunately covered by Gary Jules. Also responsible for "Shout" and many other songs you'd only recognize if they were played right in front of you.
Yo, dude, did you know that the original "Mad World" was by Tears For Fears??? Roland Orzabal's dance moves in that music video haunts me.
