Fri. 04.10.20 – There are a few perfect songs. Songs that work regardless of music genre that it is played in or who sings it in what language, because the melody and lyrics will transcend time and culture to pinpoint a part of the human condition. Most perfect songs work best when sung by two or more people with sparse musical accompaniment.
Amazing Grace is one of these songs. And Tears for Fears’ “Mad World” is another.
Curt Smith, of Tears for Fears, is performing Mad World with his daughter, Diva, in the above clip.
It is perfect for Good Friday. The world is mad. It hurts.
