I'm trying to find out what the song at the end of the movie "Donnie Darko" is. It sounds alot like R.E.M. but im not sure. its mostly just piano throughout. One of the lyrics are something like, "I realize my worst dreams were my best dreams" or something similar to that. if you could help it'd be great
Only two songs I can remember from that film are 'Killing moon' by Echo & The Bunnymen and the 'Mad World' cover by Gary Jules. Don't think it's either of those though that you're after.
It's 'Mad World' by Gary Jules/Tears For Fears. The lyric you were thinking of is 'The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had'.
the song is mad world performed by gary jules n micheal andrews, writen by roland orzabal
