"I Go Crazy" as written by and Rocco Michele/marsh Barker....
I go crazy

I go crazy when I'm without you

What have I done today
Just sat and watched the jets fly over
A car goes by
And the sun goes down
We talk about the town

This city's mad in the head
And sick in the soul
All the stars flew away a long time ago
Isn't that nice
Like Miami Vice

I go crazy when I'm without you
I go crazy when I'm without you

Well your life is like an infants dream
It's like everything's on TV
You see your face in the mirror
Could it be your place in the mirror
And so we turn on the TV one more time
And we see that everything is fine

But what have I done today
I go crazy
What have I done today
I go crazy when I'm without you

I go crazy
I go crazy
I I I go crazy when I'm without you
Go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you

What have I done today

What have I done today

Sue-Ellen looks so upset
This isn't the first time
And it won't be the last
Things going on behind her back
Oh they give you a heart attack

I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you
But what have I done today
I go crazy

I go crazy
I go crazy
I go crazy

But what have I done today
I go crazy
But what have I done today
I go crazy when I'm without you

I go crazy

I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you
But what have I done today
I go crazy

I go crazy
I go crazy
I go crazy

    My InterpretationFlesh For Lulu's probably most remembered song has a great atmosphere due to it's catchy chorus, driving but not over-powering beat, not too serious message - coyly playing with the listeners, indirectly sending the message rather than sending it straight out. And of course, being part of the movie "Some Kind of Wonderful" sound track, John Hughes (director) etches it forever in 1980s culture.

    I find 2 messages in the song, one overt and one subtle:
    The singer is lamenting his or her obvious torch for their unobtainable, unavailable or simply lost love. In the movie, it's Waz (Mary Stuart Masterson) the Tomboyish drummer younger girl who pines for Keith (Eric Stolz) the artist senior - who is totally oblivious to her affections. But the song was written before the movie, and speaks to the condition of the soul when you can be near the one you love, but just can't capture all of their exclusive affection. This supports the "I go crazy when I'm without you" chorus, and the "What have I done today?" further expression of the resignation and lament that nothing really matters (Jets fly over, a car goes by, etc.). Almost unrequited love.

    But 2 references show a subtler meaning: TV shows and how much they affect our lives The Miami Vice and Dallas references come right out of the 80s. Maybe he's looking fun at how invested we are in these fantasy worlds.
