Sowing the Seeds of Love" is a song by the British group Tears for Fears. It was released as the first single from their 1989 album The Seeds of Love, and was a worldwide hit, reaching the top five in the UK, Canada (where it was Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the US where it peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 (kept out from the top spot by Janet Jackson's "Miss You Much"), while topping the Modern Rock Tracks chart.
Along with Songs from the Big Chair, The Seeds of Love was part of a one-two artistic punch in the late '80s that situated Tears for Fears as one of the decade's more ambitious pop groups.
After The Seeds of Love, Orzabal and Smith had an acrimonious falling out and parted company in 1991. The album was not a commercial success by Tears for Fears standards, though minor chart success came via the single release of the title track (top 40 in the UK) and (to a lesser extent) the single "God's Mistake". The release of the album had been delayed for nearly a year due to a last-minute label switch from Mercury to Epic (part of Sony Music), and the ensuing confusion (Mercury had already begun promotion) did not help the album's chances either.
