"I was introduced by a friend named Paul. I thought that he was a foreign exchange student, you know one of those foreigners who is here for a little while and then they go back, and he thought I was an Indian apparently. It might have had something to do with the fact that I had a turban wrapped around my head."

--Curt on how he and Roland met at age 13.

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Sun King"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Solitude was your only choice
Bitterness your only voice
I saw your face
The time is talking now
Boy you looked so bad!
Why They're Insulting:
This was a solo song by Curt Smith, who was a member of the new-wave band Tears For Fears. He left the band in the early 1990's, leaving Roland Orzabal pretty much running the band himself. And this is Curt's response (released in 1999) to Roland's slam against him. It really isn't surprising that he felt this way considering how abused he must have felt.

Crime Records:

"Juvenile Delinquency"
The other half of the 80s synth-pop group Tears For Fears was leaning dangerously towards juvenile delinquency when he was a teenager.

He had been in fist fights, was stealing, and was getting into general mischief which he equates to "teenage stuff."

It's kind of hard to believe that this is the same guy some 40 years later who's now in back with his old friend making music together.
