Crazy Love

Album: Moondance (1970)
  • Morrison had recently married his girlfriend Janet Planet when he wrote this rather poetic song, which is about a love that makes the bad times good and the good times better. It's a soothing love that makes you complete, and the song caught on as a way for lovers to express just these emotions. It's a very popular wedding song, just don't tell the happy couple that Morrison and Janet divorced in 1973.
  • Artists to cover this song include Brian McKnight, Ray Charles, Aaron Neville, Helen Reddy, Rod Stewart, Paul Carrack and John Anderson. Canadian vocalist Michael Bublé covered this for the title track of his 2009 album.
