How come they can play a remix, but they can't play Discotheque? WTF?   ??? :(

Keep the faith. They brought it back, however briefly on the Vertigo tour, and they will do so again!

Original by far, but that's cause judging from audio and youtube videos it sounds like Bono trying to force lyrics from another song into some random techno beat. It sounds bad and doesn't mix well. Maybe if he actually learns how to sing it this way.

Still I won't completely rule it out until I hear it myself in the stadium.

God I hope they drop this fast... this is a joke.  I enjoy the spirit and the mix, but the words and the vocals DO NOT match.  I'm guessing Bono thought this would be awesome.  Some have been cracking senile jokes about U2's age and so forth.  Perhaps it's all around stuborness on everyone's part to not let go of a bad idea that has been causing a few mishaps for the band.

I may stand alone here... but I ditest them each equally.
Crazy is one of the album's low point... along with the other Lillywhite produced number... It's got a good chorus, but the little falsetto screach in the verse is terrible!
The only way that it could have been more quriky lyrically is if bono's original refrain would have stuck...
"It's not a shrimp it's a lobster..."

Can I vote neither?
Play something rocking in stead...
Gone... Until the End of the World... New Years Day... christ even Elevation... or Bullet...

I like the remix better, it looks like all of them are having fun going about with the fans.

And who can not like Larry parading around with a bongo   ;D

Djembe

And yes, I approve of Larry's  "parading"!

Thank you zooey! So now I know I'm not the only one being totally obsessive about what kind of drum it is! *high five*

I hate remixes and this is one of my least favorite songs on the CD.  I heard it in Paris for the first time and absolutely love the remix.  And, Larry does just walk around the stage, he stops about every 50 ft or so which isn't too bad on the eyes.  When I heard the opening bars, I thought it was Lemon (which I really dislike).  Keep listening and just wait until you see them perform it - it's fantastic.

The remix was terrible.  Killed the energy of the show.  At point, everyone was looking at each other like "what the he*ll is this???"  It's pretty lame.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the remix!
Infact it resurects my faith in the band.
They went on and on about new sounds/directions but the new album is just same ol U2
I fell in love with U2 cause they pushed the boundaries
I was getting bored of the new rap singing U2 (elevation, vertigo, boots) what happened to the melodies?
but suddenly I see how this rap singing works with this.
and i love the arabic chant style singing mixed in the end.

Not to mention how much fun they look like they are having and if you watch the bacelona 02Jul vid of it there is arms and arms and arms in the air!
I wanna go
Lets dance tonight!

U2 cracks me cause at times it looks like they have tried so hard on this tour to appease the common fan then they throw this twist in there.  Makes me long for the Popmart days again which I have missed for 12 years.

I'll definitely agree with missing the PopMart days - but this Crazy remix has nothing on Discotheque

Totally agree.
But also, I have been listening to the bootlegs a lot and I really have a hard time listening to Bono singing out of tune. He can`t find the right key even if it hits him in the head!!!!
It would be great if they drop this one and replace it with Mofo...  or Discoteque.
