Wedding Music vol 07 : Reception

Another day and another glimpse into my insanely controlled wedding music playlist.  I don’t mean to brag, but I did just receive compliments on my wedding playlist this past weekend.  It’s always good to know that random people appreciate good music as well.  All of these songs were played as background music during the cocktails and dinner.

mp3 : Louis Armstrong – Sittin In The Sun
mp3 : Gary Jules – Mad World (Tears for Fears Cover)
mp3 : Johnny Cash – Hurt
mp3 : Sigur Ros – Inni mer syngur vitleysingur

Yes, I do still listen to this mix.  And yes, you can see all of the wedding music I’ve posted so far by clicking right here.

Gary Jules

Once in awhile there comes a song that I can listen to on one song repeat for an hour straight.  These songs are few and far between.  One song I found years ago is Gary Jules’ cover of the Tears for Fears song Mad World.  The cover was first recorded on Mr. Jules’ 2001 album Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets (amazon) (itunes) and has since been used in everything from the soundtrack to Donnie Darko (amazon) (itunes) to Grey’s Anatomy to a Gears of War advert {alongside copious amounts of trailers, previews, and other sundry commercials, sitcoms, and dramas}.  No matter where you first heard this track there is always an emotion that returns each time you hear it again.

mp3 : Gary Jules – Mad World (Tears for Fears Cover)

This sets the bar pretty high for cover songs the world over.  I still love it five years and a thousand playbacks since I heard it the first time.  If you like the song I highly recommend watching the music video.  It’s quite brilliant.
