Welcome to the second edition of Music Monday! Remember we take suggestions so make sure to shoot @thetannertimes a DM on Instagram or contact a part of our team if you have a song you would like to see! This weeks song of the week is Mad World by Hardwell. Here at the times we had a bit of a disagreement… I, Sarah, personally think the song is not half bad. But Audrey, on the other hand, thinks it is not a very good song.
Why does Audrey dislike it?
I honestly just dislike the beat of the song. I feel that with a title of “mad world” it should be more of an upbeat and louder song. I also never really listen to any of his songs and maybe his type of songs isn't something I particularly like.
Why does Sarah like it?
I like the beginning of the song and how it is a guitar intro. I like the melody in the verses and how it goes down. “I'm just a lost soul whose made of paper,” I like this line. The chorus is really catchy also. When I listen to it, it gives me 2013 vibes, especially with the sort of dubstep chorus it has and how it builds up to music. I feel like I would hear this as a club remix somewhere. Honestly, I might just have to add this song to my personal playlist! I’m listening to the radio edit version, by the way.
“Mad World” by Hardwell was actually released in 2011, which explains the dubstep beat which was a popular theme on the radio at the time. Do you like this song? Tell us what you think! Listen to it here on YouTube and Spotify.
