A different take on a 1980's smash hit.

When you’re married to the host of The 5 O’Clock Shadow, you get a Shadow in your honor on your birthday. Last year Carla chose Jason Faulkner covering E.L.O. (“Do Ya”) and this year, she opted for Claire & The Reasons doing the Tears For Fears song, “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”, because as she echoes Curt Smith (of Tears For Fears) “Although musically this is quite a jangly and catchy song, its lyrical theme is actually pretty dark. The concept is quite serious — it’s about everybody wanting power, about warfare and the misery it causes,”

The Tears For Fears version.

And the Claire & The Reasons cover.
