* NightmareFuel: "The Prisoner" is an oddly eerie and unsettling song, at least, by Tears for Fears' standards.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "Sowing the Seeds of Love" was a very obvious musical homage to "I Am the Walrus", and it also had various other [[Music/TheBeatles Beatle-esque]] touches. "Schrödinger's Cat" is, by Orzabal's own admission, another example of this for the same song.

* TearJerker: Many, especially "Famous Last Words", which is about a nuclear holocaust.
** "Woman in Chains". When Roland sings the lyric "And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe", you'll be reduced to tears.
** "Advice for the Young at Heart" invokes this trope in a somewhat more heart warming manner - it's a song sung by one newlywed to the other, with a timeless, almost ethereal Latin arrangement. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FISDbRUPUI The music video]], showing a Latin American wedding, matches the lyrical and musical material nicely.
** "''And when you've taken down your guard, if I could change your mind, I'd really love to break your heaaart. I'd really love to break your heaaart!''", from "Shout".
** "Start of the Breakdown".
** "Brian Wilson Said" can be this, particularly the SubduedSection towards the end of the song. The RealitySubtext of Wilson's struggle with mental disorders only makes the song even more saddening. The succeeding song, "Goodnight Song", can also be quite a tear-jerker.
** "Los reyes católicos (reprise)" has quite a heartbreaking arrangement. The penultimate song on ''Raoul'', "Me and My Big Ideas", is also a quite downbeat song about the dissolution of a relationship.
** "Memories Fade" is often overlooked, but it is rather depressing.
** "The Working Hour".

* CoveredUp: "Mad World" was originally performed by them, but most (read: underage) people only know Gary Jules' version from Film/DonnieDarko.
