What movie is "Mad World" from?

"Mad World" performed by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews

Not Donnie Darko. I heard it somewhere else. Anyone know what other movies its in?

Thanks!

It's an old Tears for Fears song. I'm pretty sure the Gary Jules version was made just for Donnie Darko.

Hrm, maybe I heard the other version. Do they sound similar?

I could have SWORN I heard it in some other movie... Oh well, just another sign I'm slowly going insane.

The Gary Jules version is more sparse, almost a capella. The Tears for Fears version sounds like it's from the 80s, which it is.

The excellent Gary Jules version was made specifically for Donnie Darko. The Tears version has been in countless movies.

The Gary Jules version was also used on an episode of Smallville a while back...maybe that's where you heard it.

Donnie Darko, but I believe there is a movie coming out that has that song in the trailer, not sure though.
