Mad World.

now, I know it seems strange to start a topic over one single song...but this has got to be one of the greatest songs I have ever heard. It's off the soundtrack for the movie Donnie Darko, a righteous movie in it's own category.

a lot of people think that R.E.M. sings this song...I am not sure, as I haven't ever heard it, but that band did not write or compose it. It is sung by a terribly talented artist named Gary Jules.

I heard this song once, and could not get it out of my head ever. Randomly I'd start singing to myself, except I could only remember the chorus, which in a way made me wanna listen to it ever more.

Very recently, I got my friend to download it for me and send it to me.

I have not listened to anything since.

and I doubt this thread will get much attention, since I've found out how small the amount of people listen to good music.

this is a thread to discuss this song, and other works of Gary Jules. I do NOT want people to walk into this thread and say "he's ok but i like blink182 better they rule" blah blah blah. Seriously, do not even try to compare the sheer genius of Jules to anyone else.
