Scary Pockets presents a sublime new take on the Tears for Fears hit Everybody Wants to Rule the World. With Cory Henry kicking ass on keys and lead vocals, we can’t help but think this is how Stevie Wonder would have recorded this song.

If there was ever a song that suited itself perfectly to the marimba, we’re going to say it’s this one. Sit back and enjoy this delightful cover version of the Tears for Fears track Everybody Wants to Rule the World, performed by Michael Charles Smith and Giorgia Capobianco.

Musician Kent Nishimura turns in a beautifully nuanced and expressive performance of Tears for Fears’ 1985 classic Everybody Wants to Rule the World, played deftly on his acoustic guitar. His Careless Whisper and Rock with You covers are excellent too.

The Tears for Fears track Mad World has had two very strong showings over the years. Now we have a third variant, with the Melodicka Bros turning in a very solid hard rock arrangement of the song, expressing the song’s lyrics with a bit more anger than sorrow.

Marnie and Patrick Laird of Brooklyn Duo turn in a wonderfully emotive and pared-down acoustic arrangement of the 1983 Tears for Fears classic, based off of the Gary Jules and Michael Andrews version which gave the track a second life back in 2001. Also, that carbon fiber cello is sweet.

Mad World: Happy Version

Musician YAOG takes a break from making happy songs sad, and does his best to transform the Tears for Fears classic Mad World into an upbeat number. Seriously, this could have been the theme song for an ’80s sitcom about an unlikely pair of roommates.

Folk/rock musician Ted Yoder recently turned in an amazing live performance of the Tears for Fears 1985 classic Everybody Wants to Rule the World, played on a hammered dulcimer. His Journey, Kansas and ABBA covers are equally wonderful.
