For Sunday: “Mad World,” by Tears For Fears


This is a necessary song.  I never heard it before a few years ago, and I am desperately sorry I hadn’t heard it earlier; it’s been around since the 1980s.  It rose to prominence after being featured in the movie “Donnie Darko,” apparently.  Well, hell, who cares.  It’s a great song.  And this is a great (and creepy) little video. 



The dancing!  The skinny man clutching the window pane!  The birthday party!



Kids: it’s a mad world.
