Tears For Fears shook the music world quite a bit with their now legendary releases The’re hurting (1983) and successor Songs From The Big Chair (1985), and hits like Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Shout, and Mad World. The band embodies the distinctive sound of the eighties: a charming, down to the last detail-produced danceable synthesizerpop.
Skunk Anansie broke up in the nineties, with critically-acclaimed hits as Brazen (Weep), Hedonism (Just Because You Feel Good) and Weak. CHIC broke up in 1978 with world hits like Le Freak and Est-ce Que (C’est CHIC). Due to the great success of CHIC grew Rodgers out to be a much sought after producer and songwriter.
