When you first walk into Elizabeth's tower there's an eerie humming playing in the background. When I first heard it I thought to myself "this kinda sounds like Tears For Fears" and thought nothing more of it. Then had my mind blown when it turned out that it was Tears For Fears.
A few of those old timey reworkings were so well done I didn't even spot them. Shiny Happy People and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
The one thing I don't understand, and it seems minor but it doesn't make sense. Why there's 80's music everywhere. I get why Elizabeth was humming Tears For Fears before you meet her (cos she heard it through a tear). But why was Tainted Love being played in the Finkton bar? And another song that I can't recall (Hey Mickey?) in the tear in the musician's apartment next to the graveyard.
Perhaps it's because the Luteces knew it from their travels and brought it through with them to Columbia?
Anyone that could expand on it or explain, help a brutha out.
