"Crazy on You" is a seventies song by Heart. It, along with “Magic Man” were responsible for the band’s popularity. This song is cool because it accompanies Lux Lisbon and Trip Fontaine’s seismic first kiss in the film The Virgin Suicides. This song as well as “Magic Man” (which was played in the unbelievable hallway sequence where Trip sashays all sexy-like amongst swooning girls) made Heart almost a musical incarnation of the shimmering, unnattainable Lux, and the trés cool, casual, quintessential dreamboat that is Trip. These two songs were startlingly strong on the DVD, and it did a mindfucking job of replicating the warmth and tonality of old school vinyl records, in all their (intentionally) crackly, flawed glory. Sofia Coppola (the writer and director of the film) scores so many points and gold stickers from me for following in the same strain as Martin Scorcese and choosing the right, most perfect song, playing it in a defining scene, and letting the music do all the work. This song defines the generation, and you can feel so strongly the young air and the lusting after someone so entirely on a lazy seventies evening where something just happened you didn't expect. It is so perfect for pop cinema.

Crazy On You


We may still have time
We might still get by
Every time I think about it I want to cry
With the bombs and the devils
And the kids keep coming
Nowhere to breathe easy...no time to be young
But I tell myself that I'm doing alright
There's nothing left to do tonight but go crazy on you

My love is the evening breeze touching your skin
The gentle sweet singing of leaves in the wind
The whisper that calls, after you in the night
And kisses your ear in the early light
You don't need to wonder, you're doing fine
And my love, the pleasure's mine
Let me go crazy on you

Wild man's world is crying in pain
What're you going to do?
I was a willow last night in my dream
I bent down over a clear running stream
I sang you the song that I heard up above
And you keep me alive with your sweet, flowing love
