Crazy For You Tonight

Album: Wild World (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • Kip Moore wrote this soulful song of longing with Blair Daly and Westin Davis. It finds the loved-up singer calling on his romantic interest to put away all her concerns about what her friends might think so they can have a night of passion together.

    I don't care what your friends are saying
    To tell the truth girl they might be right
    There's games out there the boys are playing
    But this boy's just crazy for you tonight


    Moore told Esquire the tune took him back to the '80s music he loved, adding that the lyrics' focus on authenticity represent something he tries to embrace in his own life. "I never want to shy away and make myself out to be someone that I'm not. I try to keep that honest human element," he said.
