A perfect song for this Thursday afternoon. This week has been completely manic – a madhouse at work, something cool to do each and every night, and far too much to think about, not to mention weather that makes you want to frolic in the waves, drink caiparinhas, have a Summer romance and stay up really late.
Crazy on You by Heart is the execution of just such a simmering, frenzied build up. Besides the fact that the song just rocks, as does the band, it also forms the accompaniment to my favourite scene in Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides… the one in which good-girl Lux tumbles into the front seat of too-cool Tripp Fontaine’s Camaro and kisses the living daylights out of him, leaving him with wide eyes and a little teenage keepsake. It’s too hot. I need more of this in my life.
Dark hot nights. Make use of them.
