Crazy
I'm crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy
Crazy for feeling so blue

I knew
You'd love me as long as you wanted
And then some day
You'd leave me for somebody new

Worry
Why do I let myself worry?
Wondering
What in the world did I do?

Oh, crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying
And crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you

Crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying
And crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you

NICE segue.
LOVE THIS on a cold, snowy night! I'm not sure anybody does it better, but I delight in Norah, Neko, Caro, Melody, and Madeleine, too.

The real deal.....Willie's song and Patsy's interpretation.
You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
you know Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen,
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all...
And next should be "Crazy" by Seal. My favorite Seal song!

One of the best singers of the last century. 
Okay, so this makes up for the Shawn Colvin "Crazy."
Pasty mine. Precious.

Will the next song be Crazy Train by Ozzy? Standing by. 

 
Patsy's much better than Shawn.
Yay for Patsy... don't hear nearly enough of her on here!
Perfection.

"She wore Blue Crazy Velvet. . . " enter Frank, and his Pabst Blue Ribbon....
Patsy covers Willy.
Love it.  please follow it with Crazy Train by Ozzy next time! =)
Long ago, I knew a man who worked with me on the freight docs, Milne Truck Lines, who OFTEN sang this song aloud while working.  It will always remind me of him. {#Cheers}
Love this timeless Willie Nelson penned track from the immortal Patsy Cline.

I used to sing this to my ex-wife all the time.  She didn't appreciate it. 
Crazy to crazy.  Nice transition Bill!  Time to send support.
Hard to believe she died at just 30.  She seems so timeless..
{#Propeller}
Patsy will live for as long as people can hear magic.........and thank you Willie for giving her this......

Yes, that is a cool sound.  Floyd Cramer was one of the innovators of that style; it's possible he's playing on this track.
Patsy Cline always makes me want to go to a diner and order the blue plate special with a cup of joe.  It just seems like the thing to do.
Shawn Colvin - Crazy
Patsy Cline - Crazy

Bill, you're a genius. 
what a voice... {#Smile}
Why I love RP

Wikipedia says Ms. Cline hit #2 with this tune in 1962.  This, and Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin, make me wonder if casual love affairs were as commonplace 'back in the day' as they were in the '60s, or as everyday as they seem to be now.

Anybody else wonder about that stuff?

(The song's a 9, minimum, but nobody wonders about that.)

 
THAT #2 WAS A CROSS OVER FROM THE COUNTRY CHARTS, ONE OF THE FIRST EVER TUNES TO HIT ROCK, COUNTRY AND POP ALL AT THE SAME TIME, SHE WAS A GODDES OF SONG. BEATEN, ABUSED AND THE BEST BLUES VOICE TO NEVER BE CALLED A BLUES SINGER. WHEN SHE HEALED ENOUGH TO DO THIS RECORDING AFTER A " CAR WRECK " YOU CAN HEAR THE TEARS.......{#Notworthy}           ( and sex  {outside "marrage" } is what folks have been doing from day three )
if it were possible this should be a 100....Willies best , sung by Americas best......{#Sunny}
for all of the heartbroken.......... and want to be heartbroken.........


10 in any language or era

Yes, this song will be marvelous forever...  hope you are having a good time right this minute...  time flies when we're having fun...

 

I generally dislike country music -

But this is a 10 for sure.
A perfect piece of pop art.
Suddenly I'm 10, it's Christmas day and the smell of my mum's dessicated turkey fills the house.
Total ear candy!

Beautiful..

I just watched Coal Miner's Daughter last night... What a fantastic movie...
favorite of Ross Perot.... nuf sed?
You're crazy for playing this song!  Like a fox . . . . AH HAH HAH HAH!     {#Cheers}

This has GOT to be one of the top 50 popular songs of all time!

Even the Willie Nelson version deserves some air time once in a while! 
aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! nothing better than a bit of the best.
Still as good as the first time I heard it in '61.  A rare 10 from me.
Thanks, Bill.  I asked for it a couple of days back and here it is.  Good on ya.  Patsy's still unmatched.
Crazy good!

Divine. Crazy divine.
I love you, Patsy!
Love that tinkly cocktail lounge piano.
Beautiful... 
Back to back Crazy, Keep the streak going!

Classic and wonderful.....




Everybody in my hotel room loves this song...

 
I just doesnt get any better than this.  I have to stop in my tracks and just listen.
Thank you Bill....  You are a love for playing this number...  ;-)
Fucking Ross Perot nearly ruined this song for me. (Asshole.) Hats off to Patsy and song writer, Willie Nelson.
Bill, what kind of crazy theme kick are you on?
After much thought and analysis... YES!

33 and I think that this is outstanding.  Patsy is an amazing performer.

Timeless. {#Clap}
This is AWESOME!!!!!!  Thanks for the change up Bill!{#Clap}  (And I'm Under 40)

Ohhhhh.  Ok, I can do a 10 and not for a minute feel like a gushy fan.  Just the facts.  Patsy and Willie forever. {#Hug}

And performing all of that analysis places you in at least the 45+ range.

Funny, not true (maybe a tinge of truth) - but pretty funny!

I read somewhere that Patsy hated this song when she first heard it and did not want to record it, and this was years before Willie's solo performing career took off. He had a tough time selling it because it was not the formula CW sound, i mean check out the chord progression sometime!  It was a manager or producer that actually warmed her up to the tune...the rest, as they say, is musical history.


Wow, can you say  "mel·an·chol·y"     Noun: A deep, pensive, and long-lasting sadness

A lot of album covers looked like that in those days.  "Commercial artists", as they were then called, weren't paid very much back then either.
 
We still don't.

1967. Yeah dig those crazy fonts! Here's their cover for the same disc, circa 1990: Equally dated but at least they had some idea of who the singer was.
 

 
Edit: On the green cover I see Souvenir (on "Sweet Dreams"), which was (re)released in 1967 so the label certainly did have access to top-shelf design. It's just an unfortunate example of what happens when a designer gets a crapload of new fonts to play with!

I'll add my 10 to this party, 110% proof, by the way.  Patsy, the Goddess.

Patsy Cline was, during her music career, in the rock 'n roll genre. It was only later that she was adopted (co-opted?) as a darling of C&W.

Willie sure can write a song!!

This whole album (the actual record) is one of the best sonically engineered LPs ever. Audiophiles love it for its great sound. It's on my Audiophile playlist (along with Los Lobos "Kiko..." and "Good Morning, Aztlan", Sade "The Best of", the Sheffield Labs "Track & Drum Album", Erich Leinsdorf and the LA Philharmonic's "Wagner" and "Prokofiev" album, Dire Straits "Brothers In Arms" and a few others). That, and I really like this song for its memories.
 

    well, interesting point of view...

That's my kind of crazy....at least today.
Thanks again...
Still "Crazy" after all these years.

Have to give it a 10, this song and both her and k.d. lang's versions of "Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray" are about as good as country gets
{#Notworthy}  It doesn't get much better than this!

Pretty much defines "classic" in every sense.
