Friday random ten: That’s just crazy

So I was sitting with my laptop trying to be inspired for this week’s Friday list, and it occurred to me that the girls had been driving us a little crazy all weekend. And thus was I inspired.

1. Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Queen
2. Let’s Go Crazy – Storybox
3. Crazy – Patsy Cline
4. A Crazy Little Tune – Nevada Newman
5. Crazy For You – Madonna
6. Crazy Island – John Mellencamp
7. Crazy Game – Indigo Girls
8. She Drives Me Crazy – Fine Young Cannibals
9. Still Crazy After All These Years – Paul Simon
10. Crazy Man Michael – Ceili’s Muse

What’s driving you crazy these days?

Entire song list report: Started with “Love Shack”, by the B-52s. Ended with “Mamma Mia”, from the “Mamma Mia” soundtrack. It’s sung by Meryl Streep, but nowadays I hear it in Olivia or Audrey’s voice, because “Mamma Mia” – the movie, as well as the soundtrack – is their favoritest thing ever. Anyway, it’s song #3218, so that’s 105 tunes this week. The last L song was “Lying Still”, by Electric Youth. The first M song was “M-O-N-E-Y”, by Lyle Lovett, or if you prefer, “Ma and Pa”, by Fishbone.

Ripping vinyl report: Deep Purple’s “Machine Head”. I discovered both the band and the album back in college while listening to San Antonio’s one-time metal-oriented KXZL. That station morphed into classic-rock pioneer KZEP around the time of my senior year, and the songs off of this album were a fit for each incarnation. There’s probably a master’s thesis in there somewhere, but I’ll leave it to someone with more free time on his or her hands. I’ve also got a copy of “Perfect Strangers”, which got play on KXZL but not KZEP, since 80s music didn’t become classic until some time in the late 90s, but that will have to wait till next week.

    Crazy Love – N.I.T.R.O.

    If I posted any others, i’d just be accused of trying to obfuscate the fact that I have N.I.T.R.O. in my collection.
