youtube is driving me crazay
Let's see if I can piece this together.
- Over at ALOTT5MA, a post with links to lots of lists.
- One link goes to a Slate.com article exploring why everyone is covering the Gnarls Barkley song, "Crazy."
- I click the YouTube link and watch the video. Hey, that's pretty good! Somehow I've heard this before, at least the opening hook.
- Now when I hear someone say "crazy" I don't think of Gnarls Barkley or Patsy Cline. Nope, I'm thinking Jesse Johnson.
- Here's the Jesse Johnson wiki. I had no idea he was on all those soundtracks.
- For some odd reason Shockadelica is his only album that I own. I say odd, because it's one of my favorite albums from the 80s.
- Shockadelica is filled with great music, though it's most known for having one of the few Sly Stone performances in the last 20 years.
- Ignore the 80s fashions and the drum kit and just listen. This is still a phenomenal song.
