Mad World

I was just cleaning up (no, don’t worry, not Taxi Driver style :-)) my apartment. As always on these rare occasions, I enjoyed my iTunes song rotation. When I arrived at “Mad World” by Tears for Fears, I wondered why I associated so much emotion with it. Yes, the world is sometimes mad, but that couldn’t be the source of these emotions. I checked iTunes and saw that I had it as part of the “Ashes to Ashes” TV show soundtrack. But there had to be something deeper behind this, this couldn’t it be either. Finally I checked Wikipedia and discovered why this song sounded so familiar to me: a cover version of it was part of the sound track of the movie “Donnie Darko”, a pretty deep and inspirational movie. Funny how associative memory works.
