"(You Drive Me) Crazy" is the third single from pop singer Britney Spears, originally released from her debut album ...Baby One More Time in the third quarter of 1999, but was also later included on her compilation Greatest Hits: My Prerogative. The "The Stop Remix!" was used as the single version and was first included on the original motion picture soundtrack of the film Drive Me Crazy. The soundtrack was released on September 28, 1999. The single version differs from the original album version on ...Baby One More Time, which was recorded a year before in March 1998 in Sweden. On May 12, 1999, Max Martin and Britney Spears came to the Battery Studios in Manhattan, NY and re-recorded the vocals of the original song to the remixed version.The song was written and produced by Per Magnusson, Jörgen Elofsson, David Kreuger & Max Martin in 1998. This dance-based single is about Britney falling head over heels in love with someone, as she proclaims "you drive me crazy".

2002 saw the release of two major-label cover versions of the track. British nu metal band SugarComa released a cover of the track as the second single from their album Becoming Something Else, receiving strong airplay in the UK, and Richard Cheese covered it in a Jazz style on his album Tuxicity.

Commercial performance

You dive me crazy "Crazy" became Spears' second top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number ten for one week, thanks to the heavy airplay it received; the track peaked at number six on the Hot 100 Airplay chart, the highest of any Spears' single to date. However, the single didn't do well in terms of sales, and it failed to chart on the Hot 100 Singles Sales; this can be mainly attributed to the fact that the song was released as a 12" single, and at the time, this format's sales could not compete with those of the regular CD singles. As with Spears' previous two singles, "Crazy" was also a success at Top 40 radio, reaching the top ten of all three charts: the Top 40 Tracks, Mainstream Top 40 and Rhythmic Top 40.

The track also proved to be another international hit, reaching the top five in numerous European nations, including Francemarker, the German-speaking region and the Scandinavian countries. In the official UK Singles Charts, "Crazy" peaked at number five and sold a total of 257,000 copies, becoming eligible for a silver certification by the British Phonographic Industry. However, the single only managed to reach the top twenty this time around in Canadamarker and Australia; Nonetheless, the Australian Recording Industry Association certified the single platinum for shipping 70,000 copies.

Music video

As with the previous two singles released from ...Baby One More Time, the video for "(You Drive Me) Crazy" was also directed by Nigel Dick and managed to retire itself on MTV's TRL. The video was first shown on MTV's Making the Video. The entire concept was Spears' idea. It currently has a 4/5 rating on iTunes based on 80 reviews.

"The Stop Remix!" has a different video with different clips replacing clips from the original.

Shot at the Redondo Beachmarker Power Station in Californiamarker from June 14-15, 1999, the music video for "(You Drive Me) Crazy" begins with Spears as one of several waitress in a restaurant. The waitresses dress to go dancing. Spears goes and changes into a shining green top and black pants (as seen on the single cover above), and then begins an extensive dance scene. Next, she climbs up onto a stage and sings; behind her, the word "CRAZY" is seen shining in bright orange. Actors Melissa Joan Hart and Adrian Grenier make cameo appearances in the video as well, due to the fact that the song was remixed, used in, and made to promote their film, Drive Me Crazy. The video also appeared over the end credits of the season four premiere episode of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, also starring Hart, in an episode that Spears also guest starred in. The video is also Spears' longest running on TRL and the longest running by a female artist, staying on the top ten for seventy-three days. The Video debut at number 4 on August 24, 1999.

"(You Drive Me) Crazy" was the second video ever featured on MTV's show Making the Video. The first was "I Do " by 98º.
