Album Notes
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” is the lead single from "aT/dC Play 'The Game'”, an album that features interpretations of all of the songs from “The Game”, Queen’s classic LP from 1980.

On “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” aT (Adriana Teodoro-Dier) plays grand piano and toy piano (often simultaneously!). dC (Doctor Cline) plays the classical guitar on this track.

dC starts off by playing a romantic arpeggio sequence often associated with such classic love songs as “Time In A Bottle”, “Feelings,” and “Michelle”, but this quickly gives way to the upbeat strumming found in the original Queen recording.

In the verses, aT plays the melody on a toy piano with her right hand, while her left hand keeps the bass line going on a grand piano, creating what sounds like a cross between Ragtime and Javanese Gamelan music. dC backs her up, sometimes introducing flamenco-style "rasqueado" into the mix.

For both the bridge and the guitar solo, dC’s classical guitar takes center stage, playing the melody in a slow “Latin Soap Opera” style, while aT plays a “piano bar” accompaniment. In the final verse the classical guitar and toy piano play the melody together, each battling for supremacy. In the end, the classical guitar backs off, reverting from aggressive strums to lighter fingerpicking, while the grand piano repeats the chorus, fading and quietly ascending to the uppermost registers of the instrument.

aT/dC has created a "crazy little thing". And it's lovely.
