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.
