Tears For Fears / Roland Orzabal  Shout / About the Name, Tears For Fears   Options Songs From The Big Chair / 1985 Interview  Mercury  1985  AKA Curt Smith & Roland Orzabal from Bath, England / Album title was inspired by the book & tv miniseries "Sybil," the chronicle of a woman with multiple personality disorder who sought refuge in her analyst's "big chair" / "Shout" was rooted in the idea that a person can protest the madness of the world by shouting and “letting it all out." Although both Orzabal & Smith were devoted adherents of American psychologist, Arthur Janov, and his Primal Scream therapy, the song, according to Orzabal, is “actually more concerned with political protest. It came out in 1985, when a lot of people were still worried about the aftermath of The Cold War, and it was basically an encouragement to protest.”    0:00:00 (Pop‑up)

@David in London: right now we are awaiting a 2-day snow/rain mess now centred, more or less, over New Jersey: www.intellicast.com...
That's Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in the upper right hand corner.

  7:08am David in London:

@Sem, sheesh, that looks challenging. We had a little of it here too, Scotland is under snow now, but probably not to your level. The sun is out in London though, so saluting that and soaking up all the rays I can. Have a good day man.
Avatar 7:10am Sem:

@DiL: today is calm and -3 w/ no wind. So, it is a good day, thanks! NO snow here, washed away in recent rain. The new normal.
