Let the ‘Crazy’ Cover Wars Begin!

Let the 'Crazy' Cover Wars Begin!

It was just booted from the top of the U.K. singles chart after nine consecutive weeks, but Gnarls Barkley’s infectious hit, “Crazy,” is gonna have an even longer life than expected. Not since Britney Spears jumped on the scene with “…Baby One More Time,” has a single gotten as much cover-love from other artists. Listening to KEXP, I happened upon a stirring and nice version performed by acoustic-folk crooner Ray LaMontagne. In addition to this seemingly-bootleg release, there’s now news that Paris Hilton may be rescheduling her solo album so that she can record her own version of the song. Anybody else?
