"crazy" = song of the year

| 4 Comments | 1 TrackBack


"Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley is the best song of the year so far. Gnarls Barkley is Cee-Lo Green and Danger Mouse. Individually, I'd been listening to them a lot recently. Cee-Lo used to be in the Goodie Mob, and he has a solo album I like called Cee-Lo Green Is The Soul Machine. Some songs even feature a vocoder-free Timbaland!

Danger Mouse did The Grey Album, where he mashed up Jay-Z and the beatles. He also recently released an album called The Mouse and the Mask, a collaboration with rapper MF Doom and Adult Swim. Cee-Lo also appears on that album.

Check out a slow version of "Crazy" with the band dressed up as a flight crew:

The song is quite popular in England, but I've only recently noticed it completely crossing over to America. Here's what made me believe this song is achieving full saturation.

I was at 7-11 earlier this evening. The Latino clerk was listening to "Crazy". As I handed him my money, I acknowledged the music. "Good song."

"I know!" he exclaimed. Then the stoned Asian guy behind me concurred. "Great song." The panhandler at the door was quietly humming the chorus when I walked past. This song is unstoppable. Get on board now.

ha ha ha! top of the pops! i used to watch that ALL the time in london. you should ask kristen and gene to get you the CD there it probably has extra tracks for the british edition.

hmmm, or not. the UK amazon version and the US don't appear any different. well, lame.

I'm just getting into this album, but "crazy" is certainly a standout track.

Also, _st. elsewhere_ is certainly the only hiphop album *i* have which features a track about being a Transformer. Maybe Tim Duncan is secretly (and humorously) involved?

Everything that Dangermouse touches is gold these days. He produced the second Gorillaz album, the Dangermouse album, and now Gnarls Barkley. It's weird to think that he was completely unknown until the Gray Album and that album alone is why he's working with all these big name artists today.

You can see a live performance of Crazy on Conan O'Brien here:

The performance is amusing if only because the entire band is wearing shower caps and bathrobes.
