As I sat through the 9 minute adverts on channel 5 last night which interrupted Batman Returns, I became slightly more angered than normal.

This was because the "Tears for fears Greatest Hits" was being advertised. This is not the reason alone. I actually adored the advert when 'shout' came on. But then it came.

"Also including the hit MAD WORLD". The song, video and all, and also a red sticker on the cd case.
Infuriating.

Congratulations must go to the people that made the decision to release this cd, at this particular time, what a brilliant time to exploit the market. These producers are merely swinging on the coat tails of Gary Jule's cover which was Crimbo number 1, which I detest to the greatest extent. Howvere, you must admire the cunning and the blatency of the bosses who issued this release, a revival of an 80's song which has probably already featured on 4 tears for Fears compilations.

I hope other people saw this advert, and thought "Put Batman back on now you *******s, I wanna see Catwoman in here costume"

I had tears for fears well before i even saw donnie darko, they are an old band is all.
And lets be honest, if someone covered a song you made, and was more sucessful with it, wouldnt you want a piece of the pie (excluding royalties)
