1Gary Jules - Mad World
Did you know?
Originally written and performed by Tears for Fears, this song was described by bassist Curt Smith as the following.
It's very much a voyeur's song. It's looking out at a mad world from the eyes of a teenager.
Gary Jules' version is a stripped down cover that appeared on the soundtrack for the film Donnie Darko. Melancholia at its best.
Moment you'll tear up:
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
