From the who really cares except for yours truly
department: "Crazy" peaked at #14 Pop and #10 Rock. "Electric Blue", which, indeed, feature co-writer, John Oates on backing vocal, also clocked in at #10 Rock and was an even bigger pop hit than "Crazy", which peaked at #7 Pop.
As an appetizer to my next entry, here's a cool lost early AOR Icehouse hit:
BTW, the name "Icehouse" is Australian slang for insane asylum.
Icehouse - Icehouse (1981)
Note: Your eyes are not
Wow. I can't believe someone knows this song. When I saw Icehouse posted here yesterday I searched for this but could only find a live version.
Icehouse was another group that was popular when I lived in Sydney. The group was called Flowers and released a great album called Icehouse. When they signed a US contract, I think, the name was taken so they changed the band name to the name of the album/song.
One of my favorite albums with tracks like 'We can get together' 'I can't help myself' 'Fatman' and others. I liked this LP better than anything the band did afterward. Iva Davies disbanded the group and pretty much took on the name himself with a rotating band of musicians for a while, iirc.
I wish Rhapsody carried this album. 'Icehouse' needs to be on my Halloween playlist.
Devil lives inside the icehouse
At least that's what the old ones say
They say, (he came a long time ago)
He came here with the winter snow
Now it's colder every day.
