Tears for Fears "Ready to Start" (Arcade Fire cover)
Published Aug 19, 2013Legendary UK pop rock troupe Tears for Fears may have recently lined up some anniversary reissues, but that doesn't mean they're obsessed with their own past. Instead, they've recently shared a cover of the Arcade Fire's "Ready to Start."
The track utilizes the same chord progression and vocal melody as the original, but it's an entirely different song with warm synth tones and a busy, skittering beat in the double-time chorus. Whether or not they've improved on the original is for you to decide, but they've definitely made it their own.
