Dance Remixes – Triple Your Mad World!

If you think you’ve heard Mad World before, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet! Thank you Glambs for waiting so patiently for the latest in the incredible remixes of Adam’s songs. adamunofficial.com is excited to reward you with a triple present!

  Here are not one, not two, but three versions to add to your viewing and listening pleasure. The first two are more great dance remixes, and the third is an incredible view into how beautifully Adam’s voice will translate as accompaniment on movie soundtracks. It is the emotional piece from Donnie Darko when Mad World is so effectively used to tell the story. Just listen to the connection Adam’s voice makes.

Thank you denim27 for the brilliance on the first two dance remixes.

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

  1. First post again!
    Adam is awesome
    The remixes are awesome
    I just cant seem to stress this enough

    ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • These remixes are totally awesome. Thanks to all the people and Adam who put in all their hard work to give us joy. Also the Pictures are Fantastic!

  2. Hmmmm…..very interesting, i must say…….subduded, the 3rd one…hmmmmm……… Guess I still like the 3rd one best, the 2nd one next, and the 1st one last. Very Nicely done! The 3rd one just moved my mood to a mediatation-style mode. I have more of a feeling for ‘what kind’ of music Adam was talking about re all the ‘techno’ stuff, now. He’s certainly unique in his thinking! Don’t think I’ve ever heard anything quite like the 2nd version! It was cool, it was masterful, I’ll have to hear it a few more times. Just very interesting and cool!! What an imagination Adam has!He is going to turn music on it’s head, I’m sure of that! His talents have not even begun really to show, I guess! This dumbfounds me again!!! Man, he is unlimited as to what he’s capable of for sure!!!YOU-GO=ADAM-AND-ROCK-THIS-WORLD-!!!!! -love-peace-love-2 U Mr Sweetthing, Mr Wonderful, Mr. Shakeuptheuniverse, Mr Hottness-incrediblenee-uniqueness-manlybeast-Mr. Supremeness-Gorgeousmanchild……no words……AWESOME!

  3. I love this man no matter what he sings or how he sings it – there are not enough adjectives on the planet to describe the talent of this gorgeous man. The ICON of this age for sure, and I am still waiting patiently to find out if there are any plans to visit us here in South Africa?

    I prefer the 3rd one for sure. Although I have listened to Mad World hundreds of times, I saw it with fresh eyes and ears when accompanied by the scenes from Donnie Darko. You really get the power of Adam’s voice and the tortured meaning behind the words. The re-mixes are clever and I love the fact that Adam’s music is bringing out other people’s talents and creativity, but IMO these beats and pounding take away from Adam’s singing and, at the end of the day, that’s what I want to hear – Adam’s fabulous, glorious, over the top, make me shiver, other-worldly VOICE.

  5. Hey! I like all of them, but I believe the 1st remix is my favorite! I guess because I am 39 and I LOVED Remixes back in the late 80’s and all thru the 90’s! As soon as I heard Adam’s voice, I dropped everything and sat down with my 13 year old daughter to watch American Idol, needless to say I was hooked, and him singing one of my favorite song (I was a HUGE tears for fears FAN) did not help things! (-: I love all 3 remixes, they are all different and that is wonderful! Adam still ROCKS with us here in GEORGIA! Always & Forever! Keep doing what your doing and follow your DREAMS •?*¨*?•.?!!

    The third one is the best vehicle for Adam’s voice. Very haunting and other-wordly. Beautiful voice, very expressive.

  9. Oh men, hmm i think Im torn between the third and the second one….The second is so vibrant but the third is so, i dont want to say depressing, but sad in a reflexive way I guess. Im still waiting for adam’s cover to come to honduras!!! long wait I guess :s

  10. Sun-n-Stars says:

    Unbelievable! I cannot get enough of listening to him. I just hope that he will schedule performances on the East Coast when he is on his own. I cannot wait to see him and speak for others in our office. Well, we finished listening to all 3 and in our office it is unanimous that we all like the Donnie Darko version hands down and the first version next. We are going to have to get used to the 2nd version as it did not really appeal to anyone on the first try. He is so talented. I wish him so much success and happiness. I know he feels blessed now but I hope that the blessings will continue for him. I do hope that he stays grounded and will stay compassionate towards others. Hopefully he will not get so self absorbed as so many other high profile celebrities do. Keep it “surreal” as he says. Enjoy and appreciate each and every moment of his success. His possibilities are endless. We just love him.

  11. WOW, I don’t think that I can judge Adam on anything because I think he is perfect. I think that Adam is so talented that he is not going to do anything that he is not happy with, he is not going to put things out there that will bite him in years to come.

  12. KailuaGirl1966 says:

    I just received an aluminum license plate that I special ordered with Adam’s photo and “Adam Lambert” written on it! Also, I have a metal frame for the state license plate on the back of my car which says: Adam Lambert The New King of Music. Great way to get people curious about our Adam!

  13. I like the first two, but I think I like #1 best!!

  14. Wow…..loved this song since it came out in 82, but Adam’s versions are phenomenal….that voice soars to the heavens, and cuts into my soul in a way that I can’t even begin to describe…..mesmerizing, maybe?….riveting?….hypnotic?….I could listen to each of them over and over, and never get tired of them…..each song has it’s own appeal, and I like them all…….Adam has breathed so much life into a song that is over 25 years old……he is absolutely brilliant, and I just have to meet him before I die!!!!….

    Loved the 1st one
    Thanx

  16. Eileen Hubbard says:

    I love the third one best then I guess the first one and the second one the least. Adam’s voice and the way he connects with the song in the 3rd version is totally awesome! I love everything Adam does and will be purchasing all his CD’s.

  17. adamfan70 says:

    Hi, like the first one best. If someone can tell me how to download it to my mp3 , i would love to walk to it!

    • I would like to know how to download also!! If anyone cares to post instructions I would appreciate it!! Thank you in advance.!

      • Use Firefox and while in firefox download SoThink Video downloader for Firefox. Add it when it asks you to. You may also need to download Perian as well but it will tell you. Then when the YouTube vid (or any other) is playing in Firefox a little button will go green at the left end of the web address bar. Click on it… choose a folder where you want to send the clip to and it will down load as a flv.

        Nearly there….

        Also download MPEG Streamclip and drop the clip (flv) onto it to open it or open mpeg streamclip and choose song to open. When it opens you should be able to go to the file menu and export the clip to audio. If you cant select Mp3 at that point you can at least take the song into iTunes and convert it there for your mp3 player.

        A bit of a mission but so far I have been able to get any Adam clip and convert it to audio or movie for dvd. Such an awesome group of programs together. I hope this explains it well enough for you. If not say so and I will try to give more details. Once you have used it a couple of times you’ll never look back.

        Cheers
        Lisa

        P.S. I liked the moody sound of the 3rd version best. But like Randy said Adam could sing the phonebook and it would be great.
        I listen to him all day. Quiet Expectations is also wonderful.

        • If I’m not mistaken, these instructions only work for the MAC. You can’t open .flv files with MPEG Streamclip in the windows version. Perian doesn’t make a windows version.

  18. I hope you don’t mind if I gave you my total honesty. When Adam sang this song at AI, he did based it on Gary Jules’ haunting version for the movie “Donnie Darko”, not the original. Adam did a great job making it his own and it suits the movie very well. Great job and thank you for letting us see it.

    For the dance re-mix, I feel this is the wrong song to re-mix it. This is a haunting emotionally gut wrenching song and Adam deliberately sang it that way. Actually original song from Tears for Fears would convert much better. However, #2 version is nice re-mix of the song I would listen to, just not danceable. In #1 version, the rhythm beat doesn’t benefit with both slow voice and piano sound intact.

    If you want to hear Adam’s dance song, you should check out, if you already haven’t, Tina Turner’s “What’s love got to do with it” by Brazen on You Tube. Adam doesn’t have credit on this song, so you won’t find it under his name. He sounds different to some people, but it’s all Adam. I love this song and I bought it on iTune and dance to it.

    • I agree, Cee. I appreciate the work that went into mixing it, but I feel this is the wrong song to re-mix as well. Adam sang it slow becuase that is the way he wanted it. Re-mix Play That Funky Music, or something that is a faster song that he sings. Isn’t this a bit of a strange song to dance fast to anyway?? Oh, and thinaks for the song on YouTube with Adam’s voice-I’ll look it up!

    I like the 3rd vid first,duh! And then the 1st vid followed the 2nd vid! 🙂

  20. While I liked all of them, I definitely prefer the third version. I think the way Adam sang Mad World, really enhanced the scenes from Donnie Darko. In terms of the remix versions, I prefer the first one. I found that Adam’s voice was still prominent despite the electronic beat, whereas I felt that it was overshadowed by the electronic beat in the second version.

  21. I don’t think this song is a very good song to remix as a dance mix. I, honestly, didn’t think they were that great. I love everything Adam sings, but maybe you should have chosen a better song. Preferably “Play That Funky Music” or “Black Or White”

    • Hi -cmhagey (author) posting here: We’ve already published the dance remix of Black or White right after Michael Jackson died, as a tribute to him.. Look up top under Search the Website for Black or White Remix. And I hope you realize that these songs are remixed by fans and posted. I’ve just gathered them to present them. Not everyone will like them the same, but I like listening to anything that has Adam’s voice!

  22. Erm…because I absolutely ADORE the normal version of Mad World I do prefer that to these Remixes. I just love this song to be a ballad.

  23. I like the 1st one, good beat.

  24. I love the Dusty Remix! Thank You.

    Sounds good no matter what!

    KailuaGirl1966 – You got a custom license plate?? That is so Awesome!! I’ve never been so “into” someone before, but I love doing stuff to show my love, support and respect for this man. I was thinking about putting his favorite quote on the back windshield of my truck. Such a great message. Where did you go to get it done? Was it expense? I saw this girl on youtube who got Adam’s name tatooed (sp?) on her back and that was BEFORE he’d even won. lol Such dedication. I love it!!

  27. pokergurl says:

    Definetly #2! I’ve had this one in my favorites for months, I just love it and I love the graphics, the changing colors are very cool. Whoever did this one is very creative. The first one just sounded blah and the third one didn’t sound much different from the original. I can picture #2 played very loud in a club, nobody will care that it’s a “dark” song, it’s just cool.

  28. Eleanor says:

    I like the last one,then the second one. The first one was a little too fast and electronic for me. I am an old school rocker,and I adore Adam ! I hope all of his new music isnt electronic.

  29. JustSane says:

    Ick. IMO aside from the fact that a dance remix of Mad World seems inappropriate, any adulteration of Adam’s voice is just so wrong. I’m skerd…

  30. Linda Desplanque says:

    Adam could sing the Beverly Hillbilly’s theme and it would sound great. He’s just that great! I still like the slow Donnie Darko remix best but the other 2 are great too. Like I said, it doesn’t matter what he sings it’s gonna sound awesome!! And he is lookng GRRRRREAT!!!!! I’m so jealous of those of you who get to see him live. He’ll probably NEVER come to the dead midwest so I’ll have to fantasize through your eyes!!

  31. Jane Parker says:

    The 1st one is my fav!

    I imagine a song like this of Adam’s being played in every department store, every dance place, etc all over the world, anywhere that people go to SMILE, get away, get happy, and DANCE !!

    After all that is what Adam has said that he wants his music to do for EVERYONE the world over!!
    WE KNOW it does, but soon everyone will know!!!!
