Only Sane Man / Music

  • The Beatles: "The Fool on the Hill".
  • The protagonist from Harry Chapin's "The Rock".
  • The singer in Tears for Fears' "Mad World" sees himself as this. It's arguable whether he actually is.
  • The Spine of Steam Powered Giraffe is arguably this, being much more calm and rational than his siblings.
  • Contessa of Emilie Autumn's Bloody Crumpets likes to see herself as this. Then again, seeing as how the Crumpets are supposed to be a group of asylum inmates, "sane" is relative.
    Contessa: I would like to make it very clear that I am not, I repeat, I am not, not, NOT insane!
    Everyone Else: (hysterical laughter)
    Emilie: (to the audience) ...She eats people!
  • Daniel Amos: The album ˇAlarma! includes a short story in the liner notes where the narrator winds up in a decrepit city, where he's the only one to notice that the religious leaders are all spouting nonsense. The narrator outright calls himself “the only sane mind in this mad world.”
