Ever have one of those days where you're just feeling a little bit...crazy? Enjoy this list of the best songs about being crazy, as voted on by other Ranker users. It's insane how many songs have been written about being crazy (see what I did there?). Some of the best crazy songs are about mental illness, but there are plenty of other good songs about being crazy in love. Many of these songs are even entitled “Crazy.”

When it comes to songs about being insane, Pink Floyd's “Brain Damage” has to be at the top of the list. Roger Waters has said that the lyrics are a reference to Syd Barrett's mental illness. “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” is also about Barrett. Gnarls Barkley had a hit in 2006 with their song “Crazy” and Aerosmith released their “Crazy” single in 1993.

Green Day's “Basket Case” makes reference to being crazy in the song's lyrics and title. Cypress Hill enlisted their good friend Mary Jane for some inspiration on their track, “Insane in the Brain.” Tears for Fears sang about people all over the world going crazy in "Mad World." The Talking Heads also have a great song about being crazy entitled, “Psycho Killer.”

We made ourselves crazy trying to rank this list of songs about insanity. Help us sort through all these great songs by voting up your favorite tracks about being crazy to the top of this list.
