"Crazy" as an upbeat number in which Rusty tries to encourage Pearl to see him as a genuine race contender. The coaches are less than convinced, even Pearl who agrees to race with him "til someone better comes along".

ContextEdit

Control has ordered everyone to find their race partners, and in the confusion, both Pearl and Rusty are left single. Rusty tries to convince Pearl that he's gonna be "The fastest Engine in the world!" but the coaches reckon he's crazy to even try.

"Crazy" was written for the 1993 London revamp, combining the function of "Engine of Love" and "Call Me Rusty" in giving Rusty a showcase, upbeat number to demonstrate his character. While "Call Me Rusty" is motivated by his anger of being disregarded, "Crazy" is much lighter in tone, demonstrating a more positive character.

Originally the arrangement had a "do-wop" feel, however later arrangements toned this down to a more generic pop feel. In order to try to keep this song feeling "fresh" is has been re-orchestrated frequently, particularly in the German production. Aside from orchestration, the song has not altered significantly since its debut.

This song first appeared in the 1992 London revamp, and was also used in Las Vegas, UK/US Tours, and included in the German production in 2002. As with much of the recitative/dialogue sections in the 2003 US Tour, the introduction was paraphrased and focused more on Pearl than on Rusty.
