Kid Cudi & Song Used in Ben Breedlove Videos

Updated on March 13, 2012

Critically Ill Teen With Heart Condition Produces Touching YouTube Videos

Wondering about the Song In Ben Breedlove's Videos? The Erik Satiesque piano instrumental cover of Tears for Fears Mad World is a rendition made famous by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews. Only trouble is that the only instrumental version I could find that sounds similar to the one Ben used in his video is a version by Marius Furche.

Ben's video is that much more haunting and prophetic in how he chose to shoot his video without talking as if foreshadowing his impending demise and how he would be unable to speak from heaven yet his message lives on as if he were a kind of digital angel.

Another inspirational viral video pioneer who suffered a terminal illness who comes to mind is Randy Pausch and his Last Lecture. In some ways, Pausch transcended and his death eclipsed his accomplishments in life much the way Ben's greatest Christmas gift to us was his foresight in communicating the importance of living, loving, sharing what you know with others and that life after death does not need to be feared but one filled with peace and contentment.

Please feel free to leave you condolences and messages to Ben and his family in the guestbook below.

      Hi, I found the same piano music on iTunes under "tribute to Susan Boyle", you can buy the piano instrumental of mad world from there. Beautiful video, beautiful song, beautiful boy. Miss you.
