“mad world” vs. “u want me 2”

First listen to “Mad World” by Michael Andrews and Gary Jules, which just breaks my heart it’s so tragically pretty. (Also a Tears for Fears cover, for the Donnie Darko soundtrack)

And then, a new song by Sarah McLachlan, “U Want Me 2.” Which let me say, besides being a sub-par song for Sarah McLachlan, I just can’t STAND it when people can’t even be bothered to use a three letter word! Come on! I used to think she was a poet or something!!!

Tell me I’m not crazy. Did she totally steal that beginning piano riff??? I hope she got permissions for that, because it sounds identical to me. Anybody else?
