Songs from the Big Chair is the second album by the British rock band Tears for Fears. It was released in 1985 on Phonogram Records, and remains their highest selling album to date. The album peaked at #2 in the UK (where it remained in the Top 10 for over six months and in the Top 40 for over a year) and reached #1 (for five weeks) in the US.

Throughout the ’80s and early ’90s, Tears For Fears filled the airwaves with great self-conscious pop hits. They also earned a reputation for being one of the best acts of their time and in the US, their impact was undeniable. Their album, Songs From The Big Chair, sold over 5 million copies and is a true classic. Its hits included “Shout,” “Everybody Wants To Rule The Worlds” and “Head Over Heels."

Tears for Fears’ phenomenal second album marked a transition in the band’s sound and catapulted them into international prominence. Now the band's biggest-selling album, Songs From the Big Chair, is released in its most spectacular format, on 180g vinyl LP.

"The album also heralded a dramatic maturation in the band's music, away from the synth-pop brand with which it was (unjustly) seared following the debut, and towards a complex, enveloping pop sophistication. The songwriting of Orzabal, Smith, and keyboardist Ian Stanley took a huge leap forward, drawing on reserves of palpable emotion and lovely, protracted melodies that draw just as much on soul and R&B music as they do on immediate pop hooks...It is not only a commercial triumph, it is an artistic tour de force...Songs from the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade." -Stanton Swihart,
