Crazy horses - The Osmonds

The Osmonds originally consisted of brothers Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay Osmond. They were later joined by younger siblings Donny, Marie and Jimmy Osmond. After their early bubblegum pop phase, they started writing and performing their own music, and their sound moved towards rock and roll. 'Crazy horses' was one of the first fruits of that labour. The song was a number one hit in the Netherlands in 1972, peaking at number 2 in the UK.

According to Donny Osmond: 'It was Alan, Wayne and Merrill who wrote 'Crazy Horses'. Wayne and Merrill were in the studio and Wayne had started the main riff for the song. Then Alan came in and brought a cohesive concept about pollution: the horses being horsepower. Then Merrill added the 'crazy' before the horses. It's a very serious song.'
