Gnarls Barkley had a huge — and only — hit in 2006 with Crazy, which spent a crazy nine weeks at the top of the UK hit parade while becoming the all- time biggest selling download of all time. Although it is far from being a terrible record, unlike all nine-weeks-at-number-one records, think Bryan Adams, Mull of Kintyre or Bohemian bloody Rhapsody, it’s sheer popularity made me suspicious of any claim of greatness.
Then I heard this version, posted on a long-forgotten blog and what a record it is, perfectly demonstrating the elusive cover art.
All I know about Alice Russell can be found on Wikipedia, all you need to hear is this record.
