Danger Mouse Shares Rejected Off-Kilter Remix Of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy"
It’s not easy to forget just how pervasive Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo‘s run as Gnarls Barkley was back in 2006, when they released their collaborative debut, St. Elsewhere, led by the chart-smashing single “Crazy.” By now, that hook and the slightly-orchestral arrangement that holds it should be thoroughly cemented knee-deep in your dome. And as the prospect of a Gnarls Barkley reunion slips further and further out of reach, Danger Mouse just released a strangely off-kilter remix of their breakout cut, which was apparently rejected by their label for inclusion on the debut album.
Now a decade into its shelf life, “Crazy” marks an introduction to Danger Mouse for many, following on the heels of his now legendary Grey Album, where he mashed Jay Z’s Black Album and The Beatles’ White Album, starting a whole new thread in modern-day music (mash-up albums,) whether he meant to or not. You can stroll down your memory banks with this oddly infectious remix of “Crazy” down below, just be sure to keep your eyes on Danger Mouse in the weeks to come, as he continues to share morsels of his early sessions.
