(Nope, just me!)
Why are so many songs written about being crazy? Crazy isn't a desirable state, is it? Or IS IT? I don't personally know any crazy people, but it's probably very peaceful. Crazy people don't get annoyed by driving over potholes or their neighbor leaving their garbage can on the curb for approximately three months. Or by relentless TV commercials for Australian Dream or some dweeb standing in front of the Statue of Liberty grilling them about, "Why do you have that car insurance?"
Hence, I think "crazy" might actually equal "serene". 
And with that thought forcing out any coherent concerns from my brain, I have decided to do a "crazy" countdown. (Oh, that's another annoying ad -- "The Final Countdown" performance while some poor working dude is just trying to nuke his burrito in the microwave -- I watch far too much cable news.)
So, wheeeee! I'm ready to be crazy!
10. I Go Crazy -- Paul Davis (The ultimate 70's song - no offense to the seventies. P.S. Love the hair.)
9. Crazy Love -- Poco (Know the song; didn't know this was the name of it.)
8. Still Crazy After All These Years -- Paul Simon (Filler, to be honest. Never really was enamored of this song.)
7. Crazy For You -- Madonna (I always enjoy returning to the 90's)
6. She Drives Me Crazy -- Fine Young Cannibals (Always go with the falsetto, I say)
5. I've Always Been Crazy -- Waylon Jennings (WAY better!)
4.  Crazy Little Thing Called Love -- Dwight Yoakam (Okay, yea, I know it's a Queen song - don't care.)
3.  Crazy Arms -- Ray Price (Yes! Music!)
2. Mama He's Crazy -- The Judds (The Judds basically rescued country music, in case you forgot.)
1.  Crazy -- Patsy Cline (C'mon - you know it's probably the best song of all time.I have nothing more to say.)

 Thank you for going crazy with me. After listening to Patsy Cline, I've decided that crazy isn't so bad.



Why, you ask, didn't I include Prince? Well, His Highness is rather "protective" (let's say) of his videos. I don't know why; I don't understand exactly why a performer wouldn't want to be seen, but that's his gig. I often don't even understand my own thought processes, and I would say I know me pretty well.

I did find one, though (a video; not a brain wave). Let's see how long this can remain here before I receive a cease and desist letter

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Is A Farce

I mean, face it, if Neil Diamond isn't in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, what in the world does it take? You can quibble all you want, but Neil Diamond wrote some KILLER songs, and a bunch of 'em. Does "Solitary Man", "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon", "I Am, I Said", "Thank The Lord For The Nighttime", "Holly Holy", et al, come to mind? How about, "I'm A Believer"? "Sweet Caroline"? "Kentucky Woman"? I could go on and on, and on.

Take a gander at this:

So, I hear Madonna and John "Cougar" Mellencamp are getting in. What the ....??

So, I don't put much stock in the R&R Hall Of Fame. Hey, I can't be responsible for anyone's lack of taste or judgment.

But at least, The Dave Clark Five is FINALLY getting in.

Geez, what the hell? Is it because the voters were all born in the 1970's or what? Guys...and I'm talking to you that are in your late twenties/early thirties.........don't be taken in by the so-called "music" that they're playing on the Gen-X radio stations. THAT'S NOT MUSIC. They want you to think that it's music, but in actuality, it's just a bunch of people feeling sorry for themselves. It's pathetic.

Really, it's okay to actually ENJOY music. Seriously.

Music is supposed to be FUN. It's not supposed to be something that depresses you.

Why the heck do you think music was created in the first place? To make us feel bad? Why in the world would that be? That's just stupid.

So, as cool as you think you must be, watch this video. And then all you Madonnas and LL Cool J's, or whatever the hell you are, can sit back and WISH that you were as cool as someone like this:

P.S. Yes. I remember when this song first came out. I was going to the YWCA at the time with my best friend, Cathy, for the dances they held there. I was about 10 or 11 years old. My friend, Cathy, remarked, "Are they saying, 'I went to a dance just the other night; everybody there was "there'"? I thought that probably wasn't the case, but, to this day, I hear it that way: "Well, I went to a dance just the other night; everybody there was "there",
