Groove Armarda to cover ”Crazy for You”
MadonnaTribe Community member cra1gs has just read on Kylie.co.uk that Tom Findlay from the Groove Armarda duo has confirmed that they are due to cover “Crazy for You” for a new compilation from Radio 1.
Findlay has advised that it will be quite a minimalist version of the song.
The following is from Kylie.co.uk which somebody has posted direct from Tom’s Myspace blog.
“Hey Tom. How are things in Camp Groove Armada?”
“They’re good. And manic. You’ve caught me in one of those little whirlwinds that we have from time to time. Last night we were up until five in the morning doing a cover of “Crazy For You” by Madonna. Radio 1 are doing this special anniversary thing and they’re giving lots of bands a year to pick a song from. We got 1991. It wasn’t a great year for music to be honest. But “Crazy For You” was definitely a song that I slow danced to in the past. I’ve romanced a few women with braces to that tune, so it felt like the right thing to do.”
“How are you interpreting it?”
“Well we’ve done this quite minimal version. Not in a DC10 kind of way, more in a stripped back way, with a slight nod to The Cure in the chorus. The stuff we did with Kylie had the same sort of sound, sort of Blondie pop. Maybe Blondie are in our water because they’re playing Lovebox. We’re just trying to find someone to sing it at the moment. We know who we’d like to sing it, but we haven’t spoken to them yet.”
Thanks to cra1gs.
