Today's "Best Song Ever"

Gnarles Barkley "Crazy"

I wish I could say I was already deeply into the Gnarles Barkley song before (adult alternative/80's radio station) WPLJ started playing it. Before 4 year old Aniya was way into the song. Before they performed it on The MTV Movie Awards. Or on Conan. Or on Top of the Pops. Or on The Tonight Show. I wish I could say I realised how amazing this song before it spent 9 weeks at number 1 on the British singles chart (making Cee-Lo and Dangermouse hault printing the disc because the song was "too popular"). I'm a late bloomer. This song is relentless though. Don't try and fight it. Just give in. You'll be glad you did. These guys gotta run out of funny wardrobe ideas soon, right?
