Today we mark Tears For Fears co-founder Roland Orzabal’s 49th birthday with this choice 1983 clip of the band performing “Head Over Heels” sandwiched between two halves of “Broken” (the latter of which, at that point, had been released as “We Are Broken,” the B-side of “Pale Shelter”) — a configuration that would be reprised by Orzabal and Curt Smith two years later on the second side of their smash Songs From the Big Chair. This particular performance is from the VHS release “In My Mind’s Eye: Live at the Hammersmith Odeon,” filmed in London in December 1983.
