Cover vs. Original

Mad World


All I know of Michael Andrews is this hauntingly minimal cover of a great Tears for Fears song that appeared in one of my favorite films, Donnie Darko. I still love the original, but the cover is dark and creepy like the movie so I prefer it these days.

I much prefer the original. It sounds, to put it simply more...mad.

The new version, while pretty, just doesn't seem to have the fullness of the Tears For Fears one.

The Mad World at the end of Donnie Darko is sung by Gary Jules, not Michael Andrews.
