Drive Me Crazy

Album: Up All Night (2012)
  • This anthemic cut is the opening track of American Country music singer-songwriter Kip Moore's debut album, Up All Night. He told Mike Ragogna of The Huffington Post about this song, which sets up the coming-of-age theme of the record. "'Drive Me Crazy' is about those teen years for me, and I'm sure so many others," he explained. "You're so confused who you are and you're trying to figure yourself out. I just lost my dad recently, and looking back - I was talking to my brother last night - in my teen years, I can remember so many times where we would argue and I would butt heads with him, but all he was trying to do was talk to me. I was so stubborn and stuck in my own ways that I couldn't see that at the time. I wish I could go back and mend that whole thing. That's what that song means to me when I wrote it. It might come across as something different to somebody else, but for me, it's about two teens who find refuge in each other. That was what it was with me and this girl. She had to grow up fast and pay the bills and take care of her family at an early age. I was just always angry about certain stuff, trying to figure my own self out. When we got together it was one big fire, we released all of our frustration and we talked about life. That's what we had for each other, we were each other's refuge and release point."
