Gary Jules – Mad World

Gary_Jules_Mad_WorldThis is the first musical throwback Thursday of 2016.  This weeks song is Gary Jules version Mad World.  Which is most famous used in the Donnie Darko soundtrack.  Which was when covers by lots of other people.  Some of you might remember it from the Gears of War trailer.  While looking up the song.  Found it is is a Tears of Fears song from 1982 off their album called The Hurting.  Never heard this version of the song until looking up for this post.  It is very different from Gary Jules take on it.  Being form the 80’s is has the synth sound and is sung much faster.  You can hear what it sounds like > here.   Like most people I like Gary Jules version better.  Which you can see/hear > here or below.   If you can’t get enough of the song.  There is very different, creepy and cool at the same time.  It is done by Postmodern Jukebox, Puddles Pity Party and Haley Reinhart.  See that one > here.
