Tears for Fears//Mad World

I love Tears for Fears. I had this Tears for Fears tape in my car. I think it was The Best of Tears for Fears. It was my absolute favorite thing to blast at full volume while driving around—especially Head Over Heals, because it always reminded me so much of that scene in Donnie Darko where those first big dramatic soundscapes overtake you.

Speaking of Donnie Darko, this song is featured prominently, although it’s a way slowed-down cover version done Gary Jules. That version has its merits, but the original is truly amazing.

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere

Sounds like Wednesday to me.
