One of the biggest bands in the 80s!
Tears for Fears are an English pop band that sold more than twenty-two million albums.
With hits like Mad World, Seeds Of Love and Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Tears For Fears were one of the biggest bands around in the 80s.
The last time Tears For Fears released an album (Everybody Loves A Happy Ending) it reached #8 in the UK charts. This was in 2004, the year after Gary Jules had a Xmas #1 with his cover version of Mad World.
Mad World – Chords & Guitar Lessons
Mad World is a piano ballad in Dorian that in this arrangement has been adopted to just one acoustic guitar.
All chords are from the key of D major, however, D is not the home chord, Em is. This is why it’s “in Dorian” where we call chord II home.
Mad World – Lyrics
All around me are familiar faces,
worn out places, worn out faces.
Bright and early for their daily races,
going nowhere, going nowhere.
Go to Mad World – Lyrics.
