Song of the Day - Crazy

Patsy Cline - Crazy
Album: Patsy Cline Showcase (1961)

I'm not gonna lie... I have this weird 'thing' for country music. Maybe it's because I enjoy an excellent depressing song (in a non-emo way) and music doesn't come more depressing than country music... the music of pain. Example; 'Crazy.' Originally written by Willie Nelson, it's been covered many a time over the years by a diverse range of artists including The Kills, The Waifs and Julio Iglesias (what's up with that?). Rolling Stone lists Cline's version at #85 on the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time chart. Not too shabby for an old country song, hey? Above is Patsy Cline's version and below is The Kills' cover. Enjoy!
