Everybody Wants To Rule The World was a chart-topping single off the 1985 Tears For Fears album Songs From The Big Chair.

Cover Wars

According to Roland Orzabal, Everybody Wants To Rule The World was written and recorded in two weeks and was the last cut to make the album. Good thing they got it in there.

The Contestants:

Last Week’s Sauce: August 16th – 22nd

Last Week’s Sauce is a recurring column featuring recordings of shows that took place the previous week. Thanks to CTDave for the photo.


Artist & Title: The Bad Plus – Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
Date & Venue: 2009-08-21 Highline Ballroom New York, NY
Taper & Show Download: Scott Bernstein

This is the first of two recordings from last week captured during Highline Ballroom’s “piano series”. This is a great take on the, oh yeah, Neil Sedaka song. Extra props to taper Scott Bernstein (note: different than our editor Scott Bernstein, they get that lot) for taking the time to even-out the levels of the applause – a problem you get on many jazz recordings when songs end. The Bad Plus next play at the Rimouski International Festi Jazz. In a bit of Last Week’s Sauce coincidence (see below), their next gig after that will be with the Marco Benevento Trio in Boulder, CO.
