"I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad. The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had." My life right there. This Song is my whole life. I've moved around so much, went to so many new schools. Had a birthday in foster care, was adopted, dad died, mom died, living with adopted family in a while another state. :( I miss the ocean. I hate snow.

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.
