This song is so depressing
Tears for fears ruined the mood of this song... Luckily Adam Lambert brought it back. This is an awesome song it's one of the second saddest songs I know next to Johnny Cash's Hurt.
sad song, I'm alone, its the end of valentines Illuminati confirmed!
This song reminds me of when I was really little cuz my dad would play it all the time.
I'm back on Pandora for the first time since October
I first heard this song on Donnie Darko. great song and movie.

I always thought the Tears for Fears version was more upbeat and this version makes me cry every time I hear it. Love TFF but I like this one better.
There are up beat songs and there are depressing as crap songs not calling this song crap
Good song does it play on the movie up
Good song is this on the movie up

His voice blends in perfectly with the piano. I love Gary Jules' voice. <3

Hello, darkness my old friend.
This song is so beautiful, love it. Makes you reflect and think about life.
Sad lyrics should not be on this list. It only sounds that way because Gary changes the ambience from synthpop to acoustic piano.

Love the song
So very true tori.
Beautiful and solemn. I could go without listening to it for years, and the melody would still be so familiar. It sticks with you.
if your going to cover a song , you should at least try to make it good.
This guy raps kinda like m&m it's so fast and meaningless HAHA XD
This song is so sad and beautiful to me cause I feel that way with my feelings now a days
My baby wants this played at his funeral. Never thought a tears for fears song could ever be so sad. But i do live it anyway.
Beautiful song, great melody, but damn there are so many covers of this on Pandora. I don't even know which one is the original lol
the dreams of me dying are the best i ever had really man??? come on...
This song is from gears of war
Oof. Gorgeous song.
Is there a popular version of this song covered by someone else? I Know I've heard this before but I don't recognize the voice. Anyway...hau n t i n g l y beautiful!

I remember the first time I heard this song was in Donnie Darko. Love that movie, and the song itself is amazing!
this song is so sad and depressing but so awesome :D
MAD WORLD-" The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I ever had" This song brings great memories,of having the blessing of attending a couple of TEARS FOR FEARS concerts back in the day & enjoying this particular tune! : )
GOW Dom why did you have to go (gears of war)
How I feel when I only have 1 day to finish a project
It's very haunting. . . . . . .
This song hits me with all the stuff going on in the Baltic...
Very well written.
TFF is way better.

When I was younger I liked this song, but I wasn't old enough to understand it. Now that I look back at it, it makes me like it even more, even though the lyrics are pretty depressing.
