I find that these times do feel crazy but, every decade seems to have crazy times when you think about it. We can have crazy times in our own little world or just crazy moments hence why I am showing our goof...Harley. He is just a crazy galoot like Yosemite Sam might say, but he brings so much joy except when he picks up garbage on the street and, before we can say “ Dang Nabbitt”, he is munching down it. I have tried to open up his jaws but that’s a laugh because his jaws close up like a vice. Anyway, back to crazy, here are 3 songs that came right into my head with the 3rd one being the best, in my opinion.
1. PSYCHO KILLER BY THE TALKING HEADS-1977
This is actually a song about a serial killer...I had no idea, so it actually feels sinister especially since it came out when the Son Of Sam killings were going on. Kind of freaky to be honest. I always did like this song...until finding out it’s from the viewpoint of a serial killer. I do like The Talking Heads whom I saw at my old high school! I couldn’t believe they came to this school and I enjoyed it.
2. SHE DRIVES ME CRAZY BY FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS-1988
I think my husband says this about me quite a bit...good. He drives me nuts, sometimes, so crazy is good...lol. I loved dancing to this song many times and it was played every time I went to a disco...yeah, we still called them discos in the late 80s.
3. BRAIN DAMAGE BY PINK FLOYD-1973
This is one of my all time favourite songs by this band that comes from their legendary, iconic album, “Dark Side of the Moon” with the prism on the front cover. It is sung by Roger Waters and it’s based on their former band member, Syd Barrett. I had no idea but I guess Syd, who was a co-founder of this band took way too many psychotic drugs like LSD and, along with his mental instability, brought on his downfall with this band where they dropped him. He would start playing a different song than the others, while on stage, and became very distant and moody. Even though he was out of the band, the band members always made sure he got his royalties. Syd was a gifted artist and spent the rest of his life painting and gardening before he died of pancreatic cancer in 2006. I didn’t know this and if any of you have more to add, I would love to know.
Which 3 crazy songs can you think of?
