Mad World

On a song kick for blog posts...

Mad World by Tears for Fears is another fricking amazing song. The lyrics are chilling and it was after Donnie Darko (a great movie, BTW) that I really listened to the words in this song. It's one of my all time favorites and it gave me a new found respect for a pop 80s band that I didn't really like or hate.

It's hard to believe that this "pop 80s" song, originally released by Tears for Fears in 1982 (thank you wikipedia):

is the same song as this, which, IMO - and no disrespect to Tears for Fears, because this song would not be one of the best ever without these lyrics - makes it so fucking lusciously hauntingly dark:

I am sure if I go through my iTunes library, I will find a happy song to blog about...
