  • Swaying room as the music starts
    Strangers making the most of the dark
    Two by two their bodies become one

    I see you through the smokey air
    Can't you feel the weight of my stare
    You're so close but still a world away
    What I'm dying to say, is that

    I'm crazy for you
    Touch me once and you'll know it's true
    I never wanted anyone like this
    It's all brand new
    You'll feel it in my kiss
    I'm crazy for you, crazy for you

    Trying hard to control my heart
    I walk over to where you are
    Eye to eye we need no words at all

    Slowly now we begin to move
    Every breath I'm deeper into you
    Soon we two are standing still in time
    If you read my mind, you'll see

    I'm crazy for you
    Touch me once and you'll know it's true
    I never wanted anyone like this
    It's all brand new
    You'll feel it in my kiss
    You'll feel it in my kiss
    Because I'm crazy for you
    Touch me once and you'll know it's true
    I never wanted anyone like this
    It's all brand new
    You'll feel it in my kiss
    I'm crazy for you
    Crazy for you
    Crazy for you
    Crazy for you

    It's all brand new, I'm crazy for you
    And you know it's true
    I'm crazy, crazy for you
    It's all brand new, I'm crazy for you
    And you know it's true
    Yeah, I'm crazy for you
    Crazy for you, baby Writer/s: John Bettis, Jon Lind

  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdOF course Yes! Madonna sang and cried Crazy for You in one take. That's how good and brilliant Madonna is! Her friend and collaborator Patrick Leonard has said this about her-"The song is written and her vocals are done." That is exactly how Maddy gets things done in her life. And Crazy four You is actually a Country Song and a brilliant ballad at that. Dave Marsh has called Madge "one of the absolute musical treasures of all time." I have to agree wi the fellow Detroiter. When I saw the Reinvention Tour some years back, I was absolutely enthralled by Madonna's performance. As she belted out Crazy for You, Lady Madonna began to cry.
    Brilliant job, my Lady
  • Khaleel from Madurai, IndiaCrazy for you, is the classic of all time, wow, This lady make you fall in love with her. from an INDIAN MADONNA FAN.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnSee Madonna can sing!
  • Shawn from Green Bay, WiWow, Madonna is actually hot in this video, and she sings the heck out of this song! I grew up with Madonna and this song and never realized before listening to this live version how good of a singer she really is. This live version is better than the album version.
  • Alexandre from Santos, BrazilI was 12 years old when "Crazy For You" was released in Brazil. I was a great fan of Madonna in my early teens but "Crazy For You" had never been one of favourite songs by Madonna. Now, I'm 35 years old, and 23 years later, I've fallen in love with a workmate of mine and whenever I listen to the chorus of such song, I burst into tears...It touches my heart when I start listening to the firt verses...Great song by Madonna!!! Now, one of my all-time favourite songs! Alexandre Albertoni, Bairro da Aparecida, Santos, Brazil. June 3, 2008.
  • Elen from Newcastle, United Statesthis is a classic madonna song. she is a brilliant artist.
