Tears For Fears Snub Jules Duet

Newly-reformed 80's group TEARS FOR FEARS have pulled out of a duet with American singer GARY JULES at this month's (17FEB04) BRIT AWARDS.

The EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD group gave Jules permission to cover their 1983 track MAD WORLD, written by bandmember ROLAND ORZABAL, for the DONNIE DARKO soundtrack in 2001.

And enthusiasm for the new version reached an all-time high on Christmas Day (25DEC03) when Jules topped the British singles chart.

But after originally agreeing to sing with Jules, Orzabal and bandmate CURT SMITH soon changed their minds.

A Brits insider says, "It was all go until a couple of days ago.

"Tears For Fears and Gary had both confirmed, but Roland and Curt have pulled out suddenly. They've got a new album coming out shortly and don't want to be associated with a track they wrote over two decades ago."
