What with everyone no doubt looking to download the new leaked Gnarls Barkley record The Odd Couple, I thought it might be fun to remember how crazy we all went with Gnarl’s finest hour. Here’s one of the sillier (and better) covers of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.”
MP3: Mates of State – Like U Crazy / Crazy (Gnarls Barkley; live)
I’ll admit that I’d never pair up the dark beauty of Gnarls’ “Crazy” with the soft pop of everyone’s favorite married duo, Mates of State, but it works. I’ve especially got to say that I love the low rumble of the keys for the building bass parts. Nothing’ll top their bass line, but it’s an enjoyable substitute.
