Welcome to October!
Since this is the first post of our annual Horrorthon, it only seems appropriate that today’s music video of the day should be for one of the most haunting songs ever written. Originally recorded by Tears For Fears and then covered by Gary Jules for Donnie Darko, Mad World is a beautiful song and, if you ask me, an appropriate song for October. After all, it’s a mad world out there.
I do have to admit that I usually absolutely hate anything a cappella. Seriously, I usually find a cappella music to be one of the most painfully boring types of music around, second perhaps only to gospel and folk music. However, I do like Pentatonix because they’re not as a self-important as most a cappella groups (as far as I know, they’ve never done a 10-minute version of I’ll Fly Away) and they’re from my home state of Texas. (Y’know, home of the chainsaw massacre….)
