Shuffle Song Of The Day (4/20/18): “Crazy” Gnarls Barkley

“Crazy” is a song by Gnarls Barkley from their debut 2006 album St. Elsewhere. A common misconception about Gnarls Barkley is that it’s one guy and that’s his name, but they’re actually duo made up of CeeLo Green and Dangermouse. This was the band’s debut single, and it’s safe to say it did well. This song peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was an international hit as well. It got abused by radio stations when it came out, but most of us didn’t mind because it’s a fucking banger. Everything about this song is perfect: CeeLo Green’s smooth voice, the bass line, and the dope violin part during the chorus. I actually hadn’t heard this song in a while, so I’m really glad it popped up on shuffle today and threw me on a nostalgia trip. And for all you pot smokers out there, happy 4/20.

Favorite Lyric(s)

I remember when,
I remember, I remember when I lost my mind,
There was something so pleasant about that place,
Even your emotions have 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? Possibly

And now that you are having the time of your life,
Well think twice,
That’s my only advice

My heroes had the heart,
To lose their lives out on a limb,
And all I remember, is thinking,
I wanna be like them,
Mm hmm 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
