Michael Andrews feat. Gary Jules – Mad World

This cover is recorded for the film Donnie Darko (2001), and is also included in Gary Jules‘s album “Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets”. Almost twenty years before that, the original song by the British band Tears for Fears reached its international success. However, this success was not so impressive compared to what the cover did – #1 in the UK charts for December 2003.
