View Full Version : Gone Away piano same as Mad World piano

Call me crazy, but I swear the piano part that Dexter played for Gone Away is the same as the piano part from Gary Jules' cover of Mad World. I knew I heard that piano from some place before, and the song just didn't sound like it was in the right key.

Listen for yourself and tell me if I'm crazy or not.

Mad World

Gone Away

not really,
Gone Away does sound slightly like the vocal tune when played on the piano,
but i dont really much similarity in piano playing.

wtf? Playing quarter note chords on a piano means it's the same? It's seriously not very similar at all...

listen to the chords at the beginning it's exactly the same (so the chords)

They are the same chords, but they're pretty basic chords for a pop song. Not sure what the big whoop is here.

Oasis' "D'ya Know What I Mean" AND "Wonderwall," the chorus to Pearl Jam's "Alive," a couple Jethro Tull songs, and DC Talk's "Jesus Freak" all use the same chords.

Two songs using the same chords!? OMG ALERT THE PRESS!

Jk, it's a lot more common than people make it out to be

Man, this is pissing me off. I saw them on ther last day of the tour 7/18 in South Florida, and they didn't play this song or bring out a piano or anything lol, and everyone has been saying how great that part of the show was.

Gone away was my 2nd fav Offspring song and they didn't play it for us :mad:

It was still a kick ass concert though, by far the best concert I've ever been to and I've seen some good ones.
