Song of the day: Tears For Fears- Sowing The Seeds Of Love


A worldwide hit in 1989, with a number 1 position in Canada, a number 2 position in the US and a top 5 position in the UK. According to Roland Orzabal, one of the people in the duo Tears For Fears, this was the most political song they ever recorded. It refers to Margaret Thatcher, who then just had another re-election.
