    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “She Drives Me Crazy” is a song recorded by English group Fine Young Cannibals, included on their 1988 album The Raw and the Cooked. The song peaked at Number 5 as a single in the band’s native UK in January 1989 (it was released on New Year’s Day) before hitting Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US on 15 April 1989. It also reached Number 3 on the Dutch Top 40.

Background and recording

    The unique snare drum “pop” sound was created by recording the snare drum portion separately. A speaker was then placed on top of the snare drum, and a microphone below. The original recording of the snare drum part was played back through the speaker and re-recorded.

Music video

    Two music videos were produced for the song, one by Philippe Decouflé and one by Pedro Romhanyi. Similar to Decouflé’s only other music video, New Order’s “True Faith”, his version includes extensive choreography and performers in unusual costumes, including two identical dancers with completely different coloured-outfits, as well as a person with a television on their head. This version received several nominations at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards, including Best Video.
