Brave and Crazy is the second album by singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge, released in 1989 (see 1989 in music).

Track listing[edit]

All songs by Melissa Etheridge, except where noted

  1. "No Souvenirs" – 4:33
  2. "Brave and Crazy" – 4:37
  3. "You Used to Love to Dance" – 5:33
  4. "The Angels" – 4:38
  5. "You Can Sleep While I Drive" – 3:14
  6. "Testify" (Etheridge, McCormick) – 4:28

  8. "My Back Door" – 4:24
  9. "Skin Deep" – 3:10
  10. "Royal Station 4/16" – 7:08

Note: The album lists the running time of two songs incorrectly: "You Used to Love to Dance" actually runs 5:33 (not 4:33) and "Royal Station 4/16" runs 7:08 (not 6:40). The correct times are printed on the disc itself.

Personnel[edit]

Note: Richard Wachtel is credited for guitar, on AllMusic, but this is a known error, and he is not credited on Discogs.[4] Mauricio Fritz Sewak is also credited on bass, but this is likely a mistaken over-crediting of the drummer Mauricio-Fritz Lewak.[4]
