"Crazy For You" as written by Jon Lind and John Bettis....
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 meet, 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

    General CommentThis is the best Madonna song I have ever heard. Too bad it isn't more popular. I love how her voice is husky with yearning, and the sighing. semi-orgasmic background vocals contribute to a longing tone. It's very empowering in the sense that a woman is boldly declaring her love and sexual desire. Go Madge! Although it does sound a lot like a song that would've played at a high school dance in the '80's, that's part of its charm. It perfectly expresses that initial feeling of strong emotional and sexual attraction.

    Song MeaningWords can't describe how I feel about Madonna-or for that matter, this beautiful, sad and romantic ballad for the Wallises/Peronistas/Cicconistas out there! Crazy for You, the Detroit Song is called and it's a beautiful ballad-the first living proof that Madonna could actually-sing-not even that-cry her heart out! Because what Madonna is crying out here is about romantic desire and transcendence. Miss Ciccone is answering Polly Jean Harvey's question "This is Desire! We can be lifted up and taken higher! And Inside, I'm All Still Wet! Dancing, Crying and Singing With Tears in My Eyes and a Longing and Yearning in My Heart, How Can I Explain How I Feel? I Am Beside Myself-I only Believe in Love. I Dedicate This Song to All of My Fans for Standing by Me Through the Years!" With that Promise and Premise, Lady Madonna begins crying with joy and sadness, happiness and sorrow as she Cries "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! And with that, there's a crack of raw emotion in Madge's beautiful Evita/W.E voice, the first of many Masterpieces for a Lady Named Madonna-She became the Queen of America Because This Brilliant Heartland Evita Rocker from Detroit Rock City-the Rust Belt where Corvettes are where it's at and Mustangs roam free-discovered that she would change the world and make and impact on society, culture and rock & roll-by having and possessing a beautiful voice behind the Truth or Dare/Kabbalah/MDNA Facade/Personae. That humanity will be Madonna's legacy. All of us-devoted fans and Rock Critics (i.e. Rolling Stone, Spin, USA Today)-are Crazy for Her. Madonna Will Always Climb the Tree of Life! Crazy for You-a lovely, mature and beautiful Rock Ballad. Rock On Madge!
