Crazy (2:58)

Cover of RTL Winterdreams 2008

From RTL Winterdreams 2008 and 70 other releases

“Crazy” is the first single from Gnarls Barkley, a musical collaboration between Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo, and is taken from their 2006 debut album St. Elsewhere. It became a top ten hit throughout Europe, North America and Oceania, in the first half of 2006, reaching number one of the single charts in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Canada, New Zealand and other countries. According to the Crazy Songfacts, this was the best selling single of 2006 in the UK,

The song was leaked in late 2005, months before its regular release, and consequently received massive airplay on BBC Radio 1 in the United Kingdom, most notably by radio DJ Zane Lowe, who also used the song in TV ads for his show. When it was finally released in March 2006, it became the first single to top the UK charts on download sales alone. The song remained at number one in the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks (which no other song had achieved in over ten years, and was only surpassed by Rihanna’s “Umbrella” in July 2007) before the band and their record company decided to remove the single from UK stores so people would “remember the song fondly and not get sick of it.” In spite of this deletion, the song became the UK’s best selling single of 2006.

The song won a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance, and was also nominated as Record of the Year, which it lost to “Not Ready to Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks.

I remember when,
I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so special about that place
Even your emotions have an echo in so much space
