This is my version of "Mad world" originally done by tears for fears and later re-created by Gary Jules. I loved this song like many ever since it was featured in the awesome cult film "Donnie Darko" I made my own version with my own twist to it. Let me know what you think. All instruments are done by me, the piano is very simple so why would anyone use the loop from the original instead of performing it themselves when covering this song.

Pretty great

Self-harmonization is wonderful, but as others have said, you could do well to get rid of the vocal effects placed on what sounds like great singing as is.

Don't stop singing, I like it a lot.


it was one of the best version's i've ever heard.

better than all others

this is the best version of this song ever!
i like the way you did the middle of the song, it sounds great!


It was okay. The guy singing this sounded kinda gay since the double voice over made him sound gay. That's just my opinion though. Other then the voice, the song structure was pretty good. The beats and other sounds gave this audio more flavor, which was cool to hear. This was okay. I sorta liked it. Okay Work Rapture! :D

thanks for the response. Although I don't know whether to be pleased that you said the structure was good or mad because you said my voice sounded gay. But thanks anyway. Though I might get some bad comments, I will never change what I have finished.
