    the kills cover crazy 

    your pal ali points out this sweet cover of the big patsy cline hit crazy

    by the us/uk duo the kills

    some people recall that mr willie nelson wrote this tune

    but its hard to believe he write it 51 years ago(!)

    whats crazier is after willie wrote it, William Marvin Walker aka Billy Walker turned it down.

    so willie sent it to patsy and it went to #2 in the country charts.

    what was #1? a tune that spent 19 weeks at the top of the charts but didnt have the staying power over the decades

    Leroy Van Dyke’s “Walk on By”

    .

    what kind of song was that anyways?

    yes, a bad song.
