BIG AL's JOVIAL JUKEBOX #30: "Crazy Over You" by FOSTER AND LLOYD, 1987



Albie's Note:   Time again for some good ol' American Rockabilly, God love it!!   This was one of my fave pick-up truck cruisin' songs when it came out and I believe I still have the beat-up old cassette somewhere.   Country music in the 1980s was wonderful:  the radio was just full of surprises!   How else can you explain a song like this hitting the top of the Country Charts in ol' ' 87?

Anyway, put your cat clothes on for this classic:

CRAZY OVER YOU
Written by RADNEY FOSTER AND BILL LLOYD

Can't you tell, by the spell that I'm under
This fella's wonderin' if you'll let me get next to you
Is there a chance of gettin' through?
Well you never seem to notice me, no matter what I do
And everybody in town knows I'm crazy over you

It's fo' sho', there's no cure for your kisses?
Doctor says this is the last thing I'll ever do
My heart'll break right in two
Well you never seem to notice me, no matter what I do
And everybody in town knows I'm crazy over you

Everybody knows that I've been after you girl
Come on, sweet baby, let's give it a whirl
Give it up, darlin', I'll make you all mine
And we can be together lovin' all the time

Can't you tell, by the spell that I'm under
This fella's wonderin' if you'll let me get next to you
Is there a chance of gettin' through?
Well you never seem to notice me, no matter what I do
And everybody in town knows I'm crazy over you

You turn your pretty head away, I'm acting like a fool
And everybody in town knows I'm crazy over you!!



BONUS:   Here's a vid of the fellas rockin' it today.... Way cool, junior :)
