TFF version is better. This version changes the meaning entirely.

Donnie Darko introduced me to Mad World. An excellent movie and a fantastic song. Everytime I hear it I can't help but think of the movie. I can't picture near end of the Donnie Darko with any other song. The song meshes so well with the scenes depicted during the run time.

Its a beautiful song that should speak to your soul and heart, not cause tears because of sadness but tears from hearing a song composed so beautiful it actually hits you that deeply.

This song is so depressing

Tears for fears ruined the mood of this song... Luckily Adam Lambert brought it back. This is an awesome song it's one of the second saddest songs I know next to Johnny Cash's Hurt.

I always thought the Tears for Fears version was more upbeat and this version makes me cry every time I hear it. Love TFF but I like this one better.

Hello, darkness my old friend.
This song is so beautiful, love it. Makes you reflect and think about life.

Sad lyrics should not be on this list. It only sounds that way because Gary changes the ambience from synthpop to acoustic piano.

Beautiful and solemn. I could go without listening to it for years, and the melody would still be so familiar. It sticks with you.

if your going to cover a song , you should at least try to make it good.
