I read every comment and man welcome to my mad world
Omg! i love thus song already...bu t the way she sings this!! <3
OHMYGOD!!! *dies from awesomness*
Sad, but warm and kind of happy... Emotional roller coaster, great song, simple words that convey so much
Beautiful
Why is this song so relatable for me?
Glee
This song gives me the chill
Wow this is the first time I hear it and I kind of like
I like this sonny.
Garry jules was better. My life in one song.
Why am I crying?! :'(
The song is a little depressing, but I think Adam's voice was better. I like to listen to this because I can sorta relate.
I love her hair /*o*\
The Gary Jules version is better... This doesn't remind me of Dom at all... SKREW YOU ALEX PARKS!!!
She has an incredible voice. Not to mention she is sexy!

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when your done press f6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it really works.

Because I'm hopelessly in love and in pain: say your crushes name then repost this on four different songs and tomorrow your crush will kiss you. Think it will work? Not holding my breath
One of the most awesome and true songs ever!
Has always been one of my favorite songs! So perfect.
Love this song so much
Beautiful song :) very different... w e have a mad world
I think of gears of war when I hear this
This version is good too but less... Hypnotic?
The different key is bothering me...
I like this version too! Just when I thought I'd heard all of them....girl ain't bad.
A real song.
I agree freddog!
I love this song... the lyrics alone are enough to move a person- no matter the singer
I felt the same. Raising my hand in classes only to be overlooked. So many times.So many popular kids. The answers there. Yet always outshined
Gary Jules is way better. This song is meant to be simple, not with a stupid back beat.
Alexisz119 that's so true
madd madd world * °•.
Gary Jules one was good but repetitive. This one is about the same caliber but not the same tune over and over in the exact same way.
take off that stupid bunny mask
i like adam lambert and gary jules version
susannaghb
Adam's voice is better for this song I think.
Love this song but I like it best in Adam lamberts voice
Tears for Fears! Duh!
It is a mad world for sure....
Love this song!
I like all the versions, especially the original.
This song is like me so much ;c
I love this song even if its sad.
I like the original one sung by a guy better though
This song is kind of depressing
mlstax
Grabs one's attention and will not let go.
gingerca6t

I think all versions are beautiful! Buuut... This is my least favorite. Adam definitely did it best <3
