Everybody wants to rule the world


In October 2014 , the movie “Dracula Untold ” starts in Germany , i´ve watched the official trailer and i was really impressed , also by the Trailer theme , a song from Lorde with the title “Everybody wants to rule the world”. As i am a child of the eighties i immediately had a deja vue, i´ve heard this words already and after a short research i found the original song and the lyrics – they have been from a well-known band from the eighties – Tears for Fears released this song in 1985 . TFF singer about this song : “The song has a very serious meaning. It is about people who are hungry for power, and about war and the misery as a effect of it “

The song has been elected in 1985 to the song of the year in The US .

TTF singer Roland Orazabal said also in annother interview that they´ve been inspired by the simple minds song “Waterfront” from 1983.

Here you can watch the trailer from “Dracula Untold” , a clip with the Lorde cover , the original song from Tears for Fears and at least “Waterfront ” from the Simple Minds and  at the end the lyrics of the song .

the Lorde cover has been used also in the OST of “the Hunger Games – Catching Fire “

here the cover from Lorde , a singer from New Zealand , the clip is a amateur video , but with a good dance choreography

the original clip from Tears for Fears

and “Waterfront ” from the Simple Minds (indeed it sounds a little bit similar to the later sound of TFF)

Welcome to your life
There’s no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It’s my own design
It’s my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There’s a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I’ll be right behind you

So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can’t stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts for ever
Everybody wants to rule the world
