Crazy For You



Lyrics

Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one

I see you through the smokey air
Can't you feel the weight of my stare
You're so close but still a world away
What I'm dying to say, is that

I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you

Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all

Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I'm deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you'll see

I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
You'll feel it in my kiss

Because I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you
Crazy for you
Crazy for you

It's all brand new
I'm crazy for you
And you know it's true
I'm crazy, crazy for you

It's all brand new
I'm crazy for you
And you know it's true
Yeah I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you baby
I'm crazy for you
I'm crazy for you baby

Album



Single

Crazy For You, the single In 1985 Madonna made a cameo appearance in the movie Vision Quest: she's seen as a singer in a club. She performs the song Crazy For You. This lovely ballad became Madonna's second #1 hit in the US (after Like A Virgin), which was certified Gold. It also reached #1 in Australia and Japan, and #2 in the UK (the #1 was for Sister Sledge's 'Frankie'). While the single scored high, the movie didn't. That's why the movie was released in Europe with the title "Crazy For You". Because of the huge success of the single a second Madonna song from the movie was released: Gambler. In 1991, the track was re-released in the UK to promote Madonna's first greatest hits album, The Immaculate Collection and had to settle for a #2 peak again for 2 weeks ('Do The Bartman' & The Clash's 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go' stole the top spot).


Video

Crazy For You, the video The video, directed by Harold Becker, shows parts of the movie Vision Quest. We see how wrestler Louden Swain (Matthew Modine) falls crazy in love with Carla (Linda Fiorentino). Meanwhile Madonna sings about their love in a night club.




Tour

Crazy For You @ Virgin Tour Crazy For You was performed for the first time live on the Virgin Tour. It was the only slow-tempo performance of the show with Madonna mostly sitting on the stairs, naturally making it the best vocal performance of the concert.


Crazy For You @ Re-Invention Tour It took nearly 19 years before it was put back on another setlist. During the Re-Invention Tour, Madonna dedicated this song to all her fans who had stuck by her for 20 years. Standing on a higher side stage, she stood close to the crowd and sung this beautiful ballad to her fans. At every "crazy for YOU", she pointed at the crowd, while the fans - many of them full of emotions - did the same and pointed at her. It was a very sweet way to thank us for all those years...

Crazy For You was the surprise song in the Latin / Gypsy Segment of the Rebel Heart Tour in The Philippines (2nd show), Singapore and Brisbane (1st show).
