Expressing a desire to take the song out the market before people get sick of it, Gnarls Barkley are deleting Crazy this Monday.

We were sick of it about three weeks before release, so it's coming a little late, but even so, it's probably a wise move.

Well it's your blog, and a brilliant blog it is, but shame on you! What's wrong with Crazy? It's the best number one since July 2003 - maybe even May 2002. Sure it's been played a lot, but that's what happens when someone releases an all-time great single.

So does that mean that one would be justified in downloading it from a free site once it's been deleted, as it would then be unobtainable by legitimate means?

It is still obtainable by paid download - it's The Record That Made History, remember?

I'm still not 100% sure I believe this story anyway.

There's been a sourceless article (complete with incorrect info about the number of weeks it's been at no1) going around forums for the last couple of days saying the exact same thing. It even had the same quote but attributed it to Gnarls B himself, which was obviously rubbish. When the person who originally posted the article was asked they couldn't give a source and then disappeared altogether. It could be true of course, but this Daily Record one seems to take all it's information from that first article. If it was true it would be odd for it to appear in such detail in one place, then only have minor sites catch on a few days later.

The original thing that's been posted around the place:

"Gnarls Barkley

‘Crazy’ to be deleted after nine consecutive weeks at #1

Gnarls Barkley’s phenomenal smash hit ‘Crazy’ will be deleted on Monday, ending a phenomenal run of nine consecutive weeks at the top of the charts.

The decision to delete ‘Crazy’ has been made to ensure that the focus of the Gnarls Barkley campaign now falls on the second single, ‘Smiley Faces’, that is scheduled for a July 17th release on Warner Bros. Records UK.

Korda Marshall, Managing Director of Warner Bros. Records UK, commented, “’Crazy’ has proved to be a huge international smash hit that has travelled and communicated around the world incredibly well. We feel that the album, ‘St. Elsewhere’, is such a strong depth of work that we want to move onto ‘Smiley Faces’ for the summer”.

Gnarls Barkley agreed adding ‘"I consider myself a realist. I suppose that goes for most of us. But I have found a way to at once hold them, fold them, walk away and run. This was not a painless decision. But pain is nothing but a bi-product of beauty. Potentially toxic, to be sure, but that's all it is."

The success that Gnarls Barkley have enjoyed with ‘Crazy’ has been nothing short of remarkable. Having made music history when the track became the first to top the UK singles chart on download sales alone, ‘Crazy’ has dominated the music industry with sales of in excess of 700,000. The deletion of the track – the longest running #1 single since Wet Wet Wet’s ‘Love Is All Around’ in 1994 – will ensure that ‘Crazy’ has only ever charted at #1. The duo also enjoyed the rare 1-2-3 of simultaneous single, album and airplay domination.

Gnarls Barkley’s debut album, ‘St. Elsewhere’, has followed its initial tremendous critical reception with a hugely successful commercial release. Having debuted at #1, the album remains a strong seller in the Top 5 of the album charts and has already been certified for Platinum status.

All signs now point to Gnarls Barkley recreating their success on these shores in the States. Having debuted at #20 on the Billboard charts, it rose to #15 in its second week of release.

The Gnarls Barkley juggernaut will roll through the summer with a series of international festival dates in support of ‘Smiley Faces’ and ‘St. Elsewhere’. Their UK dates include their debut headline show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on July 5th as well as festival gigs at The Wireless Festival in London and Leeds on June 23rd and 24th respectively before returning to play Creamfields on August 26th"
