Gary Jules

Heard it today, after much enthusiastic raving from various others and frankly...I do not understand how it can be deemed better than the original.

Just wanted to share that.

i will say as much as i love it as a stand-alone song it works so much better in the context of donnie darko. i think it simply captured a time and place, as well as a variety of emotions which many people can relate and connect to at the moment. i'm still unsure myself about his latest album..i think many people had misconceptions about what to expect.

I've never actually heard of this Gary Jules before this. I haven't seen Donnie Darko either so perhaps I am not qualified to voice my opinion lol. The original, while not being excessively different, has everything this cover does not.
I think, anyway.

I have yet to hear the original Tears For Fears version so I am unqualified to state which is superior.

your opinion is always valued angie.

ps. Head over Heels is also used in Donnie Darko and likewise was another wise choice for the film.

I haven't seen that movie either
I doubt it would make the song less boring though


his album got a great review over here though

His albums really good, I dont think Mad World is as good as the tears for fears but I do really love it in a different way. I really like Donnie Darko and it fits so well at the end of the film.

it's better than the Tears for Fears original

more moving and, lets say, "haunting"

I'd say it's haunting...

I haven't seen Donnie Darko yet (next week, most likely after I pay off $30 in overdue movie store fines) Nor have I heard the Tears for Fears version so I can't say which is better.

I do know that I :hearted: this Gary Jules version after the reccomendation of the song by )( and Ms Fleur.
