M is for...Marry the Night and Mad World






Moving along nicely in the A-Z Blogging Challenge.  I think we're halfway through!  Today is all about the letter M.




M is for "Marry the Night" and "Mad World"

"Marry the Night" - Lady Gaga
 

No list is complete without Lady G.  She's a genius.  Genius!  Though not my all-time favorite Gaga song, this song is brilliant and the video is a storytelling slice of awesome.  Critics and fans alike praised the song.  Though it's not one of her "dance songs," it is a stand-alone track that deserves every praise it's been given.

 *Lyrics:  "I'm gonna marry the night / I won't give up on my life / I'm a warrior queen / Live passionately tonight"

"Mad World" - Gary Jules
 

A beautiful, heartbreaking song.  Jules' "Mad World" is actually a remake of the Tears for Fears track from twenty years previous.  He took the fairly pop tune, slowed it down, and made it even more awesome.  This is my go-to version; although Adam Lambert did a beautiful rendition on AI.

*Fun Fact:  Jules remade the song for the movie Donnie Darko.  Great movie!  And it has since been used in TV shows across the board.

What are some of your favorite M songs?
