"HEAD OVER HEELS" were two different New Wave songs which were sang by two different bands namely TEARS FOR FEARS and THE GO-GOS that made it to the charts back in the 80s globally and here in MANILA. Both songs were introduced here in MANILA by WXB102 back in 1985 and became very popular for PINOY NEW WAVERS back then. "HEAD OVER HEELS" by THE GO-GOs was considered a party and slam dance favorite back on those days. I included both Music Videos of the two different classic New Wave Hits in this blogpost of mine since these two MTVs were also a hit on Music Video Programs here in MANILA back in the 80s. Of course, the lyrics of both songs are also here. ENJOY!!

"Head over Heels" is a TEARS FOR FEARS song which was taken from the band's 2nd album "Songs from the Big Chair". It was the 4th single from that album and was the band's 10th single released in the U.K. The song peaked at #12 in the U.K. Top 40 back in 1985. In the U.S., It peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Well, here in MANILA It was also a big hit back then. YUP!! Even the MTV brings back a lot of memories!! I remember my classmates and I back in high school used to sing this song while in the Library since if you recall the MTV was taken from a library. He He He!! Hmmmp? The Library? I wonder how many Kids of Today's Generation visits their school library nowadays? Come to think of it guys? With the advent of the Internet and other hi-tech information alternatives, unfortunately, a lot of people of the younger generations are not into visiting the libraries anymore. Remember your Friendly Neighborhood Librarian? How about your Library Card and the Card Catalog? Wheeew!! MEMORIES INDEED!! I still encourage my students to visit the library once in a while for research purposes and not for "chicka" purposes okay. Ha Ha Ha!! Well, the library was my comfort zone to study on my freetime back on those days especially preparing for an exam. The MTV of "HEAD OVER HEELS" by TEARS FOR FEARS will also be remembered for on-screen appearances of the other two unsung members of the band namely IAN STANLEY and MANNY ELIAS. A limited edition four-leaf clover shaped picture disc was issued for the U.K. single release. The song had been developed nearly two years prior as part of another TFF song entitled "Broken" since the two songs share the same piano/synth motif. "Head over Heels" then eventually came to be sandwiched in between two bookend parts of "Broken" in live performances. Great song and a memorable MTV!!

Lyrics | The Go-Go’s - Head Over Heels lyrics
"Head over Heels" is a song by the all-female New Wave/Pop Rock band THE GO-GOS back in 1984 which was written by Charlotte Caffey and Kathy Valentine. The song was released as the band's 1st single from their 3rd album entitled "Talk Show". It was the most successful of the album's three singles which peaked at #11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. This song was a soiree party favorite here in MANILA back in the 80s. Once this song hits the dance floor then It's adrenaline rush I may say!! Btw, a good friend of mine even have mistaken the CHORUS of the song as "Get Over Here, Where should I go, Can't stop myself, Outta control; Get Over Here, No time to think, Looks like, The whole world's out of sync". YUP!! Instead of "Head Over Heels" he used "Get Over Here". Hmmmp? I can't blame him because It sounds like it don't you think? He He He!! The song also appeared in the Jennifer Garner movie entitled "13 Going on 30" back in 2004. Cool movie!! The "Head Over Heels" MTV of The Go-Gos was the last video played on the MTV's bitter music channel rival "Cable Music Channel" before it went off air back in 1984. Btw, "Cable Music Channel" only lasted for 35 days. This song is also a favorite on Retro Radio Programs here in MANILA nowadays. Another great song and MTV to be remembered by my generation.
