Mad World (World Remix) (3:41)

Cover of The Hurting

From The Hurting and 6 other releases

“Mad World (World Remix)” is the thirteenth track on the Tears for Fears’ remastered and expanded album “The Hurting” re-released in1999.

Unlike the original recording of “Mad World” of which has a somber tone, this version has a more syncopated beat with accents of brass. the “Remix” has all the earmarks of a dance version but doesn’t lose the meaning of the lyrics as many songs might through such a process.

The lyrics are cryptic as to hint at that the reality is juxtaposed with singers or subject’s dreams. There are worthy cover versions that honors the original with an air of equal solemnity.
