100 Cover Versions #15: Tears for Fears cover 'Ashes to Ashes' by David Bowie

Tears for Fears cover version of Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie featured on the NME charity album Ruby Trax and also on their 1996 album Saturnine Martial & Lunatic which was a collection of B-sides and rare tracks. 

Ashes to Ashes is a song that so completely suited Tears for Fears to cover. I've listened to lots of covers over the past few weeks and so many music artists often lose the very aspect of what makes the original great in the first place. Tears for Fears remain faithful to the song but make it their own sound too.
