Songoftheday 8/30/16 - I walk the street at night until the morning light comes shining through...

"Crazy About Her" - Rod Stewart
from the album Out Of Order (1988)
Billboard Hot 100 peak: #11 (one week)
Weeks in the Top-40: 10

Today's song of the day comes from Scottish rock icon Rod Stewart, whose 1988 album Out Of Order had been one of his most successful so far at radio, with two top-20 pop hits in "Lost In You" and "Forever Young" followed by the mid-tempo "My Heart Can't Tell You No" with reached the top-5. The fourth pop radio single from the set was the dance-rock exercise "Crazy About Her". Written by Stewart with band keyboardist Duane Hitchings and guitarist Jim Cregan, it was like a lot of his 80s singles that straddled guitar crash and a funky-lite beat, with Chic's Bernard Edwards' production providing the right amount of bass (though the "rap" interlude hasn't aged as well)...

"Crazy About Her" became the fourth top-20 pop hit from Out of Order in July of 1989.

The "flip-side" of the single, "Dynamite", was a respectable hit on rock radio, reaching #16...
