The remix version was brilliant! Especially as it was a complete WTF! moment.

I have to go for the remix, just because of the giant bopping heads on the tv screen at the beginning... i don't know why, but it makes me laugh so hard, but at the same time its awesome... :D
...not to mention Larry actually walking around the stage!!!  8)

Boom Cha!

This was always the best song on the album for me, while my stance that this tour needs a POP-free setlist has already been pounded to death.

U2 delivers!

They play the best-song-off-the-album (at least for me) twice in two different versions in the same concert, while they still maintain a setlist free from infestation (of material I am not a fan of).

U2 sure knows how to treat the casual fan.

As to which Crazy is better, of course the original is the best.  But if we can get two versions of the same brilliant song then it would be a bonus treat!

Cheers,

Wow Jick, in the thread I made about Crazy you posted this:
"They murdered the song, and added another waste-of-time moment for the audience."


So which one is it?

Well, a murdered Crazy is better than playing songs that are dead-on-arrival to begin with like Fez-Being Born, White As Snow, or Cedars Of Lebanon.

It is my favorite track off the album, and the original version far surpasses the remix.  But a remix version of Crazy is still leagues better than some other garbage in that album.

Cheers,

J

I like the remix better.  It is fun, groovy and you can dance to it.  The original version should only be played in elevators.

My vote goes to the remix dub version or whatever it's called.  It had me dancing in my seat, and I'm a broken record about this, but I really love the Adam's bass on this version.

Remix! it took me a while to decide, but watching them perform the remix version is sooo much fun- it just looks like a party in the stadium and different then any other song by far. tho they might not be sticking to their roots, it still fun to see em party a little!
