    For a stretch of 1985 and 1986, “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” gave Tears For Fears a chance to do just that. The third single from their 1985 Songs From The Big Chair album — more well-remembered than the direction-changing “Mothers Talk,” and an even bigger smash than the inescapable “Shout” — “Rule The World” hit the top 20 of just about every country that bothered to track that sort of thing — Stereogum

    Photography by Laurie Lewis. The band name is rendered in three stacked and justified lines of Columna, a set of open Roman caps drawn by Max Caflisch and issued by Bauer in 1952. This lockup is also used for other releases from this period, including “Shout” (1984), “I Believe (A Soulful Re-Recording)”, and Songs From The Big Chair (1985). It’s paired with Gill Sans for the song title.
