Wiki Biography: One half of 80s pop sensations, Tears for Fears, which he formed in 1981 with childhood friend Roland Orzabal whom he was previously in a ska-influenced band called "Graduate" with. After two unsuccessful singles, Tears For Fears score a huge hit with their third single "Mad World", which reached no. 3 in the UK charts. Until 1990, they enjoyed a string of international hit singles, including "Everybody Wants To Rule The World", which topped the US charts and reached no. 2 the UK charts in 1985. Tensions between him and Orzabal prompted Smith to leave the band in 1991 while Orzabal continued to work under the Tears for Fears name. Smith released his first solo album in 1993 called "Soul On Board", then began working under the name "Mayfield" with US musician Charlton Pettus. He and Orzabal reformed Tears For Fears in 2000 and released a new album, "Everybody Loves A Happy Ending" in 2004.
