Our World, Mad World

In times like these, with so many bad things going on - in Japan and in Libya, for example, to mention just the most recent ones - it´s hard to get away from melancholy and sadness and the title and the music of this song by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews reflect these feelings for me, maybe that´s why I can´t get it out of my head.

In the first video you can follow the lyrics; the second ones the official video of the song.

    Last Friday we listened to this song in class and since that day I have listened to it a few times and I like it.
    It's true that we can think that the world in which are we living now is becoming crazy, I can't believe all the things that are happening now and I hope that everything will change soon. I want to watch the news on TV and see that everything is becoming better day by day.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Laura. It makes me really happy to see that, apart from teaching you English, I can share many things with you and you like them. Not such a big generation gap after all.

    I agree that these days we're only receiving bad pieces of news: the "traditional" crisis, the tsunami, the problem in Libya, but thinking positively there may also be good news, in the last years we've made a lot of discoveries on medicine and technology, so, even if it's very difficult, we should think that there are also good things, humans don't do everything so badly.

  6. Bárbara, I´m glad we agree on this; if you like it so much, you should learn the lyrics by heart and sing it along, to improve your pronunciation. It works!

    I really think that this is a bad moment for the world and as the song says in this bolg, it is a 'mad world'. I hope this situation changes soon becuase it affects worldwide and this is not positive for anyone.

  8. Sara, I am afraid this is not the best song for you right now, you need something more optimistic. Have a look at the other songs in the blog, you are likely to find something that cheers you up
