Mad World – Social Distancing Edition

Mad World performed by Curtis Smith of Tears for Fears and his daughter

If the pandemic has been good for anything, it has led to the production of a lot of great content from musicians since touring isn’t really an option. Look no further than NPR for their Tiny Desk (home) Concerts, or Billboard’s list of Livestream & Virtual Concerts. And if anything describes our current existence, ‘Mad World’ is it.

Performed here by Curt Smith of Tears for Fears, with help from his daughter, this unplugged version is just gorgeous. Curt’s daughter, Diva – a singer/songwriter in her own right – lends her beautiful alto to this timeless (and timely) classic.
