Genius: there's no other word for it - Part XXXIV

This was covered recently by Gary Jules (a very good cover, too), for the movie Donnie Darko. If there can be a beautiful song, about sadness and loneliness (real loneliness), then this is it.

Dear Matt:

You always come up with the best music and video's. Now I have to question why I download all that bootleg music and stuff? {laughing}

With an completely innocent glance and look; Your Bloggery Friend,
Stan

stephany: It's a powerful piece of music, isn't it?

stan: LOL! You're asking me? Maybe it's just the thrill of getting away with something illicit?

Prefer the Tears For Fears version, they did a great track called 'Woman In Chains' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hDoPCiC3RQ

With a title like that one would think it was an AC/DC song :)
