Awesome live!
This sounds ok but I thought the version they did live was much better. So much fun to watch, listen, and dance to! I hope we get a release of the live version of the remix in the US. PLEASE play the remix version in the US!!! :)

Good, but live version even better
Nice remix, but I still prefer the live version ( I danced like crazy). I second some who said "bring techno U2 back"! Meaning please play Discothèque again!

Crazy all the time!
The live remix is awesome and one of the best moments of the show ever. Maybe some U2 fans are aging when they say something like "I don't like it, "please stop remixes". Ah, seriously, everyone know U2 are always innovating and getting better over the years. Thanks for this! Let's go crazy!

Love It!!
Loved this when I heard it live, so pre-ordered it. Thanks for making it available now. Can't wait to get the full download. Possibly the best remix since the Even Better than the Real Thing remixes. I'll be dancing to this in my sleep. I do agree that studio b sides are a treasure, perhaps when the boys finish touring we may get more original material, can't please everyone I guess!

cool
its a gd mix but the person below is right adam and edge need to be turned up like the live performance of the song which is amazin

Release the Live Version
I agree with PAISDANNYAL. The studio version lacks Adams groovy bass, which was the one thing, that made the Gothenburg 31.07 performance absolutely smokin´. Please release a live version with a pumpin´ bass!

Ugh!
I am so sick of remixes. The band haven't had but 2-3 decent B-sides since '92. Come on lads, you can do far better than this.

Remix of "Crazy"
I would prefer to hear the song performed live as it was on the album. See you on 9/24!!

INTRESTING

OMG CANT WAIT!

Crazy for remixing
Remixes have always been a little suspect but that is the band experimenting and you have to admire them for doing so. I myself am no big fan but I have never liked any of the remixes from previous years but this, love it. Whether or not It has grown on me from the European tour I do not know but this is without a doubt the best remix to date. I’m going Crazy tonight !

TOO CRAZY!
I love this remix of 'Crazy'! I had such a great time dancing on it in Zagreb! the live performance was better, with Larry going around.. Thanks! L.O.L. Ana

NIZHONI - Beautiful Crazy
I disagree w/some of the other comments. I thought this was a unique and terrific way to express this song and the energy it created. And, I do hope you play it in the states. Look forward to purchasing our own copy.

going 'crazy' tonight
i like a lot this version although the album's version is fantastic

Better live
This is much better live. You have to be in the stadium to appreciate the live version but this isn't bad. I only buy the CD singles that have a new studio track on them or download it. Won't be buying this I'm afraid.
kennymcnaught - 01 September, 2009
Love the remix
I really love the Redanka remix, but I have to admit that the best experience is hearing the live version. The live version feels more intense. Hopefully this will be issued as a b-side on a future release.
songsrlikesmells - 01 September, 2009
LeGeNd!!!
What a choon!!!! What a mix! Excellent at the gigs. They should keep playing this mix but also play the original as the final encore song after MOS - send the crowd home with a Crazy bounce in their step! You know I'll go crazy!!!
MassiveU2Fan - 01 September, 2009
Fantastic
Sheer brilliance, it's mofo meets crazy. bring back techno U2
kay_vox - 01 September, 2009
so much better live.
I hope U2 releases a live version of this as the Bside to the next single. Can't wait to dance to this in toronto!!!!!!!!

REMIX
The remix is not good, stick to the original track on the album.
BenjaminTS01 - 01 September, 2009
OMG NO
Please do NOT play this in the US! The original version is SO beautiful. This is the one song I was REALLY looking forward to from the album live :(
PAISDANNYAL - 01 September, 2009
Redanka Kick Darkness Vocal
This remix is good but lacks the punch of the live performance. In my humble opinion it needs adams base line cranked up to give the full effect witnessed at Hampden Park Glasgow on 18/8/09 where this song sounded and felt incredible as it pumped you up and carried you along with the song.
