B-side "'''Pharaohs'''" is an instrumental that served as the B-side to the "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" single. The only voice heard is a recording of BBC Radio announcer Brian Perkins reading the Shipping Forecast for the sea lanes around the United Kingdom (see below). The title of the song is a play on the name of the Faroe Islands ("Faroes"), one of the places referenced in the forecast. This is one of the few songs in the Tears for Fears catalogue on which founding member Curt Smith shares a writing credit. The song has since been included in the B-sides and rarities collection ''Saturnine Martial & Lunatic'' as well as the remastered and deluxe edition reissues of ''Songs from the Big Chair''.

Faroe Islands

The '''Faroe Islands''' ( north-north-west of mainland Scotland. The total area is approximately 1,400 km 2 (540 sq mi) with a 2010 population of almost 50,000 people.

The Faroe Islands have been a self-governing country within the Danish Realm since 1948. Over the years, the Faroese have taken control of most domestic matters. Areas that remain the responsibility of Denmark include military defence (Danish Defence), police (Police of Denmark), justice (Justice Minister of Denmark), currency and foreign affairs (Minister of Foreign Affairs (Denmark)). https: www.retsinformation.dk Forms R0710.aspx?id 20991 Retsinformation.dk, Lov om de færøske myndigheders overtagelse af sager og sagsområder (Also called: Overtagelsesloven ''written in Danish'') The Faroe Islands also have representatives in the Nordic Council as members of the Danish delegation.

The islands were associated with and taxed by Norway, then the Union of Kalmar, and then Denmark–Norway until 1814, when Norway was united with Sweden. Scandinavia was in political turmoil following the Sixth Coalition (War of the Sixth Coalition) of the Napoleonic Wars, when the Treaty of Kiel granted Denmark control over the Faroes, Iceland and Greenland in 1814. The Danish trade monopoly ended in 1856.
