Gary Jules: Mad World

還記得電影 Donnie Darko(台譯:怵目驚魂28天)的片尾曲嗎?這首 Gary Jules 翻唱的 Mad World 受到相當大的好評,而這首歌的MV也是充滿了特色。

我還記得日本有個節目,在台灣叫超級變變變,這節目內容是利用人的肢體動作和使用適當的道具表演出各種形、事、物,充份發揮了人類的創意。而這首歌的MV也是利用同樣的手法,用許多人的跑位,肢體動作來拼湊出不同的圖形,從旁邊經過的路人可能會覺得只是一般的跳舞,但是一旦由上往下看時,便會看見這些圖形有人臉,有房子,有車子,十分有趣。

Mad World

All around me are familiar faces, worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad World
Mad World
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And they feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen
Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me whats my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad World
