File this one under Random But Entirely Cool: 80s new wave duo Tears for Fears, best known for hits like “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” are responsible for a surprisingly great cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ready to Start.” The glossy, elegant take on the track includes strings, buzzing synths, and a pretty killer drum beat, considering these guys’ haven’t produced a hit in thirty-some-odd  years. Think 80s radio pop meets the Postal Service.
