Our Mad World piano sheet music is a "must have" pop classic! Written in 1982 by the British group Tears For Fears, it has been covered by numerous artists but, perhaps, the most well-known is by Gary Jules and featured as the original soundtrack for the film Donnie Darko (2001). Our adaptations are based on this slower, more intimate version. Choose the right level for your skills, with or without reading aids. If you are a beginner, then our Level 1 easy piano music for piano solo is the right one for you. For more experienced players and If you want to make your own cover of Mad World, try our Level 2 piano accompaniment version.
