I've said it a thousand times, but "Crazy in Love" is one of my favorite songs ever. It seems fresh every single time I hear it. Every now and then, on a random listen, I'm blown away all over again by the horns, Beyonce's vocals and just the pure joy of the whole song.
Anyhow, thanks to Pretty Much Amazing, I found a cover of the song by VV Brown that actually captures the "crazy" in the song. Her cover is frenetic, all over the place and pretty much amazing. (Ha!)
Sorry for the long absence. I'm working on working out a end-of-the-decade type countdown for my favorite albums/songs of the noughties. So...stay tuned.
While you're waiting, take some time to listen to the two Beyonce/Lady GaGa collaborations going around right now.
This is "Video Phone," a track (and latest single) from Beyonce's album that she's sort of re-releasing with a Lady GaGa verse.
The song is one of my favorites from her last album. And the video is hot as hell.
And this is "Telephone," a track (and rumored next single) from Lady GaGa's latest...uh...album The Fame Monster.
Lady GaGa has been somewhat hit or miss for me. Her debut album was alright in my eyes, but I wasn't spazzing out over it. However, I've gotten a hold of her newest work (the eight-song album/reissue) and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. "Bad Romance" is an over-the-top, massively catchy, hot mess of a song. It's epic. And though my favorite part of this "Telephone" song is the Beyonce verse (it's almost like a rap cameo), it's definitely a great pop song. And the other six tracks are equally bizarre and rather terrific.
