Poco - Crazy Love - On Legend Album (1979)

Poco - Crazy Love - On Legend Album (1979)
Poco '70s #1 Hits on WLCY Radio





"Crazy Love" is a 1979 hit single for the country rock group Poco introduced on the 1978 album Legend; written by founding group member Rusty Young, "Crazy Love" was the first single by Poco to reach the Top 40 and remained the group's biggest hit with especial impact as an Adult Contemporary hit being ranked by Billboard as the no#1 Adult Contemporary hit for the year 1979.

Issued as a single in January 1979, "Crazy Love" became the first Poco single to reach the Top 40 with a #17 peak on the Billboard Hot 100. On the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, the track spent seven weeks at #1 and at the year's end was announced by Billboard as the #1 Adult Contemporary hit for 1979. "Crazy Love" also charted Billboard's C&W chart at #95. In Canada "Crazy Love" reached a chart peak of #15: the track also became Poco's lone charting single in Australia with a #73 peak.

Although Poco would have three subsequent Top 40 hits all of which reached the Adult Contemporary chart's Top Ten, "Crazy Love" remained the band's signature song: in a 2008 interview promoting an upcoming Poco gig, Rusty Young stated: "The only reason we're talking now is 'Crazy Love'. That was our first hit single. It's a classic, and it still pays the mortgage."
