SOME INTERESTING FACTS

The song reached No. 5 on the British singles chart in January 1989 and is Fine Young Cannibals’ highest charting single in their native UK. The single had greater success in the US, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on 15 April 1989.

She Drives Me Crazy also reached No.1 in other countries, including Australia, Austria, Canada, New Zealand and Spain, plus peaking at No. 3 across parts of Europe, including Belgium, Germany, Iceland, Ireland and Switzerland.

Their first attempt at recording the song (initially called ‘She’s My Baby), with lead singer Roland Gift’s normal singing voice, wasn’t liked by anyone in the studio. However, after some tweaking of the lyrics, to create ‘She Drives Me Crazy’, combined with Gift switching to falsetto vocals, everyone agreed that the revamped song was worthy of being on the album and as a single.

She Drives Me Crazy has been included in several movie soundtracks, including The Other Sister (1999), Hitch (2005), Towelhead (2007) and The Back-up Plan (2010).

Weird Al Yankovic honored the song by turning it into "She Drives Like Crazy." Arsenio Hall also recorded a parody of the song, called "Ho is Crazy" in 1989.

 

SONG LYRICS

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
I can't stop the way I feel
Things you do don't seem real
Tell me what you've got in mind
Cause we're running out of time
Won't you ever set me free?
This waiting 'round's killing me

[Chorus]
She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
And I can't help myself

[Verse 2]
I can't get any rest
People say I'm obsessed
Everything you say is lies
But to me there's no surprise
What I had for you was true
Things go wrong, they always do

[Chorus]
She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
And I can't help myself

[Verse 3]
I won't make it on my own
No one likes to be alone

[Chorus]
She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
And I can't help myself
She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
And I can't help myself
She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
And I can't help myself
