Mad World by Tears For Fears

This week’s Song of the Week was recommended by MIA Staff Karin Jervert: “A classic in my mind. This song reminds me of someone that I loved and lost a long time ago in the 1990s. He was a young kid, who lost the struggle to navigate a “Mad World” and I think about him a lot as I heal from my own struggles.”
