Did You Know? Mad World was originally released 20 years before Gary Jules recorded it, by Tears For Fears the electronic group who wrote the song. 


The one before the last line of the song was originally 'Halargian world' which was a joke reference to a planet the producer had made up. This line was understandably miss heard by Gary Jules who sang it instead as 'enlarge your world'
