When Madonna first hit the music scene I was hitting the club scene. Like a Virgin was the song of the day, my girlfriend and I had a dance we use to do to that song. Boy did we get some looks whilst we were dancing. That was when life was good, fun and worth living.
This song reminds me of the clubbing days, with the smoky air she speaks of, haha This song Crazy for you has got to be one of her best. Though a typical 'love song' a girl wants a boy and can't have him. It's still a good song.
Madonna is an artist and has come a long way since those days. Madonna, unlike a lot of singers, who are now-a-days just singers with a band. She's an artist…. How can anyone not like her? - TEZ
Ack! Madonna smooching Spears
Upon its original release, the single was backed with Berlin's song, "No More Words", which had already been a top 30 hit in the United States (as an A-side) in 1984, as well as a minor hit in Europe. At the time, Berlin was signed to Geffen Records, who released both the single and the Vision Quest soundtrack. In February 1991, the song was re-released in the United Kingdom having been included on The Immaculate Collection. Like the rest of the recordings on that compilation, "Crazy For You" was slightly remixed and edited (in this case by Shep Pettibone and Michael Hutchinson). It was this new remix that was released in the UK. The cover of the re-released single was the same photo used on the cover of the U.S. release of "Rescue Me". The cover photograph is from the photoshoot of Madonna's controversial 1990music video for "Justify My Love", and was taken by Stephane Sednaoui.
Want me? Madonna also performed "Crazy For You" on her 2004Re-Invention Tour, a heart-felt rendition which she dedicated to all her fans who had stuck by her for the last twenty years. It was greeted with roaring approval, with the audience singing along word for word with Madonna. The song was ranked number 38 on VH1's "100 Greatest Love Songs", and during the special it was revealed that "Crazy for You" was recorded in one take. In 2003, Madonna fans were asked to vote for their Top 20 Madonna singles of all-time by Q-Magazine. "Crazy for You" was allocated the #11 spot. The music video, directed by Vision Quest director Harold Becker, shows clips of the movie which explains how the two lead characters fall in love. Meanwhile, Madonna sings about their love in a night club. The same video was used for the UK 1991 re-release. Madonna shot her performance on November 22, 1983 at the Big Foot Tavern in Spokane, Washington.
"Crazy for You" became Madonna's second number-one hit single on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA. The song also was a huge hit in many European countries and reached number one in Australia and Japan. Remarkably, on the Australian chart, "Crazy for You" displaced another Madonna release "Angel"/"Into the Groove" from the top spot, making Madonna one of only a handful of acts who have ever achieved the feat of replacing themselves at the No.1 spot on the Australian singles chart. When it was re-released in the UK in 1991, the song entered the chart at number two for two weeks, having previously also peaked at number two on its 1985 release. Combined sales topped 750,000 making it her best selling single in the UK to date. ~ [Source:Wikipedia]
Madonna's many career sidelights often obscure the fact that she remains one of the greatest pop acts of all time. Yes, she's made some awful movies, but so did Elvis and the Beatles. Simply put, Madonna makes exemplary pop records. They've embraced the trends of the day while showcasing a feisty personality that lesser pop idols and their keepers can't fake. Like David Bowie during his glory days, Madonna has moved from stylistic strength to strength: She's succeeded so fantastically partly thanks to her skill at picking crafty collaborators, but also because behind all the videos, costumes, quotes, and celebrity trappings, she is an exemplary songwriter with a gift for hooks and indelible lyrics, and a better studio singer than her live spectacles attest. Her many albums aren't always perfect, and the early ones include regrettable filler. But when it comes to singles, Madonna has few peers, a deserving candidate for the title of greatest singles artist since the 1960s heyday of the single. ~ [Source:Rolling Stone - From 2004's The New Rolling Stone Album Guide]
