Alanis Morissette recorded "Crazy" with producer Glen Ballard for her 2005 Greatest Hits album The Collection
. Released as a single, it went to #104 in America and #65 in the UK. That year, Morissette sang it in a Gap commercial
, and in 2006, her version was used in the movie The Devil Wears Prada
. In an interview with Songwriter Universe
, Morissette said: "It's a song that I was obsessed with as a teenager, and when I did the Gap campaign, the lovely folks there asked me to submit a list of my favorite songs. 'Crazy' was one of the first I chose because it brings back so many memories of my teenaged years. The main line, 'You're never going to survive unless you get a little crazy' is to me one of the simplest yet most profound statements. Seal and I exchanged sweet emails when I was about to cover his song."
Ballard added in a Songfacts interview: "'Crazy' is one of the great records of all time. I had to redo it with Alanis once and it was terrifying for me because I knew I couldn't beat that record."
