“I remember when/ I remember, I remember when I lost my mind/ There was something so pleasant about that place/ Even your feelings have an echo/ In so much space/ And when you’re out there, without a care/ Yes, I was out of touch/ But it wasn’t because I didn’t know enough/ I just knew too much,” Joe Jonas growled before asking the thrown question for the chorus, “Does it make me crazy?”
“Crazy” was released in March 2006 and was the debut single from CeeLo Green and Danger mouse‘s partnership as Gnarls Barkley and preceded their sophomore studio album St. Elsewhere. The song was practically inescapable that year as it stormed up the charts, eventually peaking at No. 2 on Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for Record of the Year at the 2007 Grammys, winning for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.
DNCE’s acoustic rendition follows their similar covers Hilary Duffs”Come clean” Yes Yes‘s “Too Little Too Late” and Paramoreis “The Only Exception.” However, the Jonas-led trio have hardly held on to millennial nostalgia, with their other covers straight off the bat Harry Styles‘ current No. 1 hitAs it was“that Billy JoelThe 1977 classic “Vienna.”
