Subject: Gnarls Barkley - Crazy

Written By: whistledog on 05/14/06 at 9:53 pm

Any opinions on Crazy by Gnarls Barkley?

It hit #1 in the UK in April of 2006 and was the first single to ever top the UK Singles Chart based on downloads alone

I just saw the video for it today, and it's somewhat catchy.  It's already becoming a big hit here in Canada where it's currently at #53 in the charts (which is great, since last week it was at #97)

Never heard of them before in my life, and I doubt anyone else from America has either

I thought this was a typo on "Charles" Barkley.

I just listened to it and I think it's Horrible.  Hopefully they keep it over in the UK and away from here

It's different. It's alright I guess.

I actually like it. It's like trip-hop. It's something different and it sounds good.

I think this song is like no. 23 on the itunes top downloads list, so people are buying it here though it hasn't got any airplay yet really.

I still like them and my son will sit there and watch the video and sing along with it. Hysterical.

I prefer the other singles from Gnarls Barkley because I heard them less.

LOL seeing this thread again, I'd almost forgotten about 5.19.86.  That dude was psycho lol


'Crazy' took ALONG time to fall out of the Canadian chart.  If I remember, it was in the chart for close to a year

I took notice.  It was the bassline, then the rest followed.  Wow!  What a great song! 

It may have emerged from '90s and '00s DJ culture, but it's every bit as soulful as the soul classics of the '60s and '70s.

When I was out on Wednesday, Crazy was played of the speakers of the restaurant I was in. I wanted to get up and leave.
