Crazy ~ Gnarls Barkley

Genre: R&B, Soul
Writer: Cee-Lo
Producer: Danger Mouse
Album: St. Elsewhere (Gnarls Barkley)
Label: Downtown Records, Warner Music
Year: 2006

Gnarls Barkley is a duo consisting of producer/instrumentalist Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) and vocalist Cee-Lo Green (Thomas Callaway). "Crazy" was Gnarls Barkley's first hit from their debut album St. Elsewhere. The song reached top ten status in several countries including the UK and US. "Crazy" won a Grammy in 2007 for Best Urban/Alternative Performance and was also nominated as Record of the Year, but lost to the Dixie Chicks. I think this song has a great beat and alot of soul, but maybe I'm crazy.

Crazy - Gnarls Barkley lyrics

I remember when.. I remember,
I remember when I lost my mind.
There was something so pleasant about that place.
Even your emotions had an echo
In so much space.

And when you're out there without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough.
I just knew too much.

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Possibly. (radio version)
Probably. (album version)

And I hope that you are having the time of your life,
But think twice.
That's my only advice.

Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you,
Who do you think you are?
Ha ha ha bless your soul.
You really think you're in control.

Well, I think you're crazy.
I think you're crazy.
I think you're crazy
Just like me.

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb.
And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them.
Ever since I was little,
Ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it's no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done.

Maybe I'm crazy.
Maybe you're crazy.
Maybe we're crazy.
