I have read in dozens and dozens of places that Gary Jules is a one hit wonder. That hit obviously being the cover, Mad World. The song has appeared in different places, but people, for the most part, discovered it while watching the movie Donnie Darko. I am here to set the record straight, once and for all. Gary Jules is NOT a one hit wonder. Anyone who claims that Mad World is his only good song clearly hasn’t heard any of his other music. His album, Trading Snakeoil For Wolftickets, has not yet been released in the United States for some reason, which may be what is causing the confusion.(UPDATE:available through CD Baby) Gary Jules is a very talented musician and songwriter, and just because Mad World is the only song that has hit mainstream, that doesn’t mean his other songs are bad. It just means that he hasn’t gotten the respect that he deserves, just like many other independent artists. The difference between him and them is that this once “no name” had this one song that became big, while many other good independent artists never have had that opportunity. So here are a few of my favorite Gary Jules songs. Take a listen and decide for yourself, is Gary Jules really a one hit wonder?

UPDATE: Meant to add that Gary Jules just released a new album that is available in the US. Visit his myspace to hear some of his newer tunes, and to get directed to where you can buy the album.
