These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Tears For Fears
Covered Up: "Mad World" was originally performed by them, but most (read: underage) people only know Gary Jules' version from Donnie Darko.
However, both band members have said that they love this version of "Mad World". They originally tried to write the song as a ballad on acoustic guitar, but it didn't work, so wrote it to a drum beat and did a synth pop version instead. They have even covered Gary Jules' version live.
Memetic Mutation: Shout, shout, let it all out! These are the things I can do without, come on! It's also not uncommon for other people to insert a different word where "things" is. Just take a look at the band's main trope page. Somebody used it as a heading to describe all of the following tropes by replacing that word with "tropes".
Suspiciously Similar Song: "Sowing The Seeds of Love" was a very obvious musical homage to "I Am The Walrus", and it also had various other Beatle-esque touches. "Schrödinger's Cat" is, by Orzabal's own admission, another example of this for the same song.
Tear Jerker: Many, especially "Famous Last Words", which is about a nuclear holocaust.
