Sunday music: Mad World

Gary Jules' Mad World is the best depressed song ever. I would say it's depressing but you can't even go there, you're so taken with the singer's own depression. No, it's depressed, not depressing. It's from the movie, Donnie Darko, a favorite of mine. I love this simple, elegant song.

Still, it is an exercise in depression. The latest comment under the video at YouTube said:

"this song makes me want to kill myself, in a good way."

Thanks, Annie. But seriously, I'm running out of music that I like enough to post here. I'm a pretty picky guy. But I'll try to keep your Sundays interesting.

Hmph. I just listened to it. I had no idea they wrote it, or rather that Roland Orzabal of Tears for Fears wrote it. I just supposed it was Gary Jules. Thanks for the info. These intertubes are wonderful for finding out things, aren't they?
