Tears for Fears singer performs ‘Mad World’ with his daughter, and it’s hauntingly gorgeous

One thing is sure: we are living in a very, very mad world right now. Listening to the lyrics of the song “Mad World,” it has perhaps never felt more fitting.

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces

Bright and early for their 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

Tears for Fears front man Curt Smith and his daughter, Diva, performed the the song on YouTube, and it’s gorgeous.

The original Tears for Fears version from 1982 had a quicker tempo and techno beat.
