I Go Crazy (3:42)

Cover of Radio Ga Ga

From Radio Ga Ga and 4 other releases

“I Go Crazy” , written by guitarist Brian May, did not make it into 1984’s album “The Works”. It was instead issued as the B side to “Radio Ga Ga.” The track was written some-time in 1981 during sessions for “Hot Space”, which Queen would release as an album the following year. Though the song would not be released on the album, May incorporated elements of the song during his nightly guitar solos while on tour in Mexico the same year.

The song would later be included as a bonus track on the 1991 re-release of “The Works”.

Brian May - 1984, Faces Magazine:

“In fairness, I must say that all the others go through these strong feelings, as well. As it is a democracy, they don’t get their own way, either. With this last album, now, I wrote a single, you might call it one of my heavy indulgences. It was very rough and raw, but I really liked the sound. The other three hated it so much they were ashamed to play it. So, it wound up as the B-side on Radio Ga Ga, which is good as it gives the fans a song they didn’t receive on the album, more for their money. But you see, it was kept off the album by the majority.”
