~~~~~~~~~~

Many thanks to my daughter, Lindsey, visiting for the holidays with her husband, Erik, from Fort Riley, for choosing this selection for SLS.

Released March 15, 1989 from her album Good to Be Back, Miss You Like Crazy was a huge hit for Natalie Cole, becoming her fifth Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where the song peaked at number 7. The song also topped both the R&B and adult contemporary charts in 1989.

The song is a moving ballad in which the singer describes how she is feeling lonely and is longing for the one she misses “like crazy” (or, in other words, very much).

FUN FACTS

    • Miss You Like Crazy is ranked as the 67th biggest US hit of 1989.
    •  In the 1990s, Natalie sang traditional pop by her father, resulting in her biggest success, Unforgettable… with Love, which sold over seven million copies and won her seven Grammy Awards.
    • Cole’s debut album, Inseparable, had songs that reminded some listeners of Aretha Franklin. The media’s billing of Cole as the “new Aretha Franklin” started a rivalry between the two singers. The feud boiled over at the 1976 Grammy Awards when Cole beat Franklin in the Best Female R&B Vocal Performance category, a category which Franklin had won eight times before losing to Cole.
    • Natalie Cole recorded 23 studio albums, 2 live albums, received 21 Grammy nominations–winning 9–and sold more than 30 million records worldwide before her death from congestive heart failure at the age of 65 December 31, 2015.

Enjoy and Happy New Year!

Miss You Like Crazy

by Natalie Cole

Songwriters: Preston W Glass / Gerry Goffin / Michael Masser

 

Even though it’s been so long, my love for you keeps going strong
I remember the things that we used to do
A kiss in the rain till the sun shined through
I tried to deny it, but I’m still in love with you
I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
Ever since you went away, every hour of every day
I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
No matter what I say or do, there’s just no getting over you
I can see the love shining in your eyes
And it comes as such a sweet surprise
It seems believing is worth the wait
So hold me and tell me it’s not too late
We’re so good together, we’re starting forever now
I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
Ever since you went away, every hour of every day
I miss you like crazy, I miss you, baby
Love like ours will never end, just touch me and we’re there again
Just one night, and we’ll have to find the feelings like we used to do
Hold on tight, and whatever comes our way, we’re gonna make it through
It seems to believing is worth the wait
So hold me and tell me it’s not too late
We’re so good together, we’re starting forever now
And I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
No matter what I say or do, there’s just no getting over you
And I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy

    I love this song! I remember listening to this on the radio when I was younger and loved it back then (but didn’t know it was Natalie until I got older). I love Natalie’s late 80s and 90s music. Awesome pick! Happy New Year! 明けましておめでとうございます。
