Curse You Gears of War!!!

Friday, November 24, 2006 8:17 AM

By now, everyone and their dog has the song from the recent Gears of War ad in their head:

Now the song is called Mad World, by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews (video is below) 

The song gained noteriety as part of the Donnie Darko soundtrack. So now everyone is in love with the song and, of course, wants a copy.

iTunes: DOESN'T HAVE IT! However, its funny that the #2 song on iTunes Canada right now is a version of Mad World done entirely with string instruments off of a collection of tv and movie music done to classical music...lots of people were fooled into thinking that was the song they were looking for. Although Gary is listed as an artist on iTunes, his song isn't. Neither is the Donnie Darko soundtrack.

Local Music Stores: DON'T HAVE IT! Whatever! How can I find a full soundtrack to Dawson's Creek and not find the Donnie Darko soundtrack ANYWHERE?!

Luckily, I think I can order it online...which is what I thought that iTunes was supposed to be for...but whatever...I guess its a Mad World after all.

You could always download the original version and slow it down...

Tears for Fears originally, I believe... 11/24/2006 9:12 AM | Carl
