Crazy For You – Madonna

In this video

Crazy for You” is a song by American singer Madonna, written by John Bettis and Jon Lind, from the soundtrack album to the film Vision Quest (1985). It was released on March 2, 1985 by Geffen Records as the first single from the soundtrack. Producers Jon Peters and Peter Guber, along with music director Phil Ramone, decided to use Madonna after listening to her previous recordings, employing Bettis and Lind to write the song. After reading the script of the film, Bettis and Lind wrote the song about the situation in which the lead characters meet at a nightclub. Initial recording sessions did not impress Bettis and Lind, and they felt that “Crazy for You” would be dropped from the soundtrack. However, a new version was recorded to their liking. John “Jellybean” Benitez was the producer for the song, and it was a challenge for him, as previously he was associated with recording dance-pop songs only. Initially Warner Bros. Records did not want the song to be released as a single, since they believed that it would take away the attention from Madonna’s second studio album Like a Virgin (1984). In the end, Peters and Guber convinced Warner officials to greenlight its release. “Crazy for You” ushered a new musical direction for Madonna, as she had not previously released a ballad as a single. The track features instrumentation from snare drumsharpbass synthesizer and electric guitar. Lyrically, the song speaks of sexual desire between two lovers and consists of innuendos. (Cr. Wikipedia)
