The Day In History : Tears For Fears released The Hurting

On this day in history (March 7, 1983), Tears For Fears released their debut album The Hurting featuring the singles Mad World, Change and Pale Shelter. However, there is so much more to this album than just the singles. Songs like Suffer The Children, Memories Fade and Ideas As Opiates are all single quality songs and combined, they make The Hurting perhaps my favorite album of all time.
