From the recording Crazy Time
Richard Underhill ran for mayor of Toronto in 2014 and originally wrote the chorus to this song as an homage to Toronto’s infamous crack smoking mayor, Rob Ford. Since then, the chorus has become a worldwide refrain. We really do ‘live in a crazy town, in a crazy world, in a crazy time.’ The verses poke fun at modern culture and technology: urban tanks (SUVs) Instagram, greedy banks, bitcoin, food bloggers, fast food, the climate crisis, phone addiction, fake news, etc. Another great sax solo by Kelly Jefferson takes us to out the final chorus.
