“It Ain’t Cool to be Crazy About You:” Another No. 1 For George Strait


We all experience doing anything and everything for the person we love. We sacrifice what we can just to make them happy. Love really makes us do things we don’t normally do. It pushes us out of our comfort zone. However, love also hurts us and sometimes turn us into a fool.

The Song’s Story

His single is about a man who realizes that the time he spent and the effort he did for the girl he loves was a waste of his time. She made him believe that she loves him until she decided that she’s not. He went crazy because of her. His friends told him to move on, but he doesn’t want to do it. Eventually, he realizes that it’s worthless to fall in love with someone who takes you for granted.
