And next week’s New Music Monday will be the official video for the single, so I hope you’ll come back to check that out! Now back to this week’s music and time for something a little different. This is my version of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”:

Crazy in Love

I look and stare so deep in your eyes
I touch on you more and more every time
When you leave I’m beggin you not to go
Call your name two, three times in a row
Such a funny thing for me to try to explain
How I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame
Yeah, cause I know I don’t understand
Just how your love can do what no on else can

Got me lookin so crazy right now
Your love’s got me lookin so crazy right now
Got me lookin so crazy right now your touch’s
Got me lookin so crazy right now
Got me hoping you page me right now your kiss’s
Got me hoping you save me right now
Lookin so crazy your love’s got me lookin
Got me lookin so crazy your love

When I talk to my friends so quietly
“Who he think he is?” Look at what you’ve done to me
Tennis shoes don’t even need to buy a new dress
You ain’t there, ain’t nobody else to impress
It’s the way that you know what I thought I knew
It’s the beat that my heart skips when I’m with you
Yeah, but I still don’t understand
Just how your love can do what no one else can

Repeat Chorus

Got me lookin so crazy your love
Got me looking so crazy, my baby
I’m not myself lately
I’m foolish, I don’t do this
I’ve been played myself
Baby I don’t care
Cuz your love got the best of me
And baby you’re making a fool of me
You got me sprung and I don’t care who sees
Cuz baby you got me so crazy

Repeat Chorus

Music & lyrics by Rich Harrison, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z

    Great version. Reminds me of Gran Canaria holiday in 2003 (memory of that holiday is a little spotty though :))

    So, in a fortnight of your Music Mondays I just went from Nick Cave to Beyoncé… is that range or what? ^^

    I have to particularly praise this one, I know good R&B translates into a variety of other genres (gotta give producers something :p) but it still requires faerie loads of talent and capacity to do that translation and make it your own, your Crazy in Love does that, the ‘uh-oh’s especially, I had forgotten about them and when they came in I thought “How fitting are they!” had I thought of them beforehand I would have sworn it was impossible to pull them off out of Beyoncé’s range without sounding foolish – you decidedly nailed that part 🙂 There’s something really nice in your covering work.

  6. […] a certain kind of voice that can take on the likes of Waltzing Matilda, Martha, The Ship Song, Crazy In Love, Titanium and my personal favourite Lover, You Should’ve Come Over but Derek manages to make […]
