Tuesday Tunes-Songs to slow dance to

Well maybe you could have slow danced to these songs back in the 80's at clubs such as The Roxy but probably not now. I have to admit I am a little bummed that this month is coming to an end because I have really enjoyed taking a look back and doing Amanda's nostalgia theme. But alas all good things have to come to an end at some time right.

I have always been a big Duran Duran fan. There's just something about their music that speaks to me. I can't not listen to it. It doesn't matter what song may come on the radio, if it's a Duran Duran song I will not change the station. I know I mentioned my favorite song by them last week but I couldn't just leave it there because there is another song by them that comes in as another favorite.

Keeping with the slow'ish rhythm I couldn't pass up sharing Mad World by Gary Jules. Now I know it's not the original and I may be slammed for saying what I am about to say but....I like this version better. Don't get me wrong, the original by Tears for Fears is okay but I like the heart put into Gary Jules version. It's more melodic which in my opinion is what makes it a heck of a lot better.

I included a link to both versions of Mad World. Now tell me which is your favorite?
