Crazy World

  • Lyrics
  • This is the title track of the third full-length studio album recorded by the American Pop-Rock band Boys Like Girls. The band recorded a duet, "Two is Better Than One" with Country-Pop princess Taylor Swift on their previous album, and Crazy World finds them paying homage to the Nashville sound in a more in-depth way. "I'm a huge country music fan," frontman and chief songwriter Martin Johnson told MTV News. "I don't really listen to pop radio. I listen to a country station in L.A. So, like, I mean we're a pop band, and I can't really pretend I'm from Georgia and have a southern accent and wear a 10-gallon [hat] and expect to be a country guy.
    "But it's a huge, huge influence for the band," he continued. "Musically, I think, some of the best songs are on country radio and not pop radio. I think the songwriting is really strong and the stories are told in such a unique way. It's a huge influence and always has been for Boys Like Girls."
