"Ooh It's Kinda Crazy" is a song by Vancouver pop band soulDecision. The song was written by front man Adam Stillman and was the second single of their Platinum Selling Album No One Does It Better. The song was originally released in 1998 as an independent single when the band was known as Indecision. Many AC & hot AC radio stations in Canada play the 1998 version rather than the album version. Even though some critics pointed to its striking similarity to George Michael's "Fastlove", the song was released in 2000 in the States and a video was shot, it was directed by Stephen Scott. That video became soulDecision's first number one on TRL.

History[edit]

Trevor Guthrie is the author of the song, and he sings about a love interest who evades him. The lyrics stem from a sour relationship lead singer Trevor Guthrie went through. "Ooh It's Kinda Crazy" was recorded when the band was known as Indecision.

Music video[edit]

The video begins with Dave Bowman waking up listening to the former single "Faded" and Bowman crushes the radio with a hammer and wakes up to a crowd of screaming girls. Throughout the video the members of soulDecision tries their best to evade the adoring crowd through silly costumes as they attempt to get to soundcheck. The video was filmed in Toronto, including at Main & Gerrard St. Eventually the band makes it to their soundcheck which eventually turns into a concert. This video became a hit on both Total Request Live and MuchMusic, reaching number two.

The song gained significantly on the chart when re-released in 2000, reaching #18.[2] The song had similar success in the U.S, reaching #26 on the Mainstream Top 40. The single however seemed a bit of a letdown abroad, not charting in the United Kingdom or Asia, or the Hot 100. "Ooh It's Kinda Crazy" went on to be a fan favorite. After this single, the band would never chart again in the United States. It peaked at #49 in Australia in April 2001.
