Closer to the Heart. Crazy on You is very repetitive.

CTTH is in the same category as Fly by Night...a simple, radio friendly song that the guys really aren't all that fond of. Here's Alex goofing on it in concert ('there's a closet in your house...'). Outside of the intro, there's nothing in CTTH that's all that interesting.

Crazy on you is much more significant to Heart's catalog and frankly a more interesting song.

The interesting thing about this forum is that apart from Xanadu AFTK songs aren't all that popular.

Replace interesting with distressing.

Closer to the heart!

Aye, I don't get the hate for AFTK it's always been in my top 5 RUSH albums.

Closer to the Heart is a Rush classic. Just like Crazy On You is a Heart classic. I can’t say I like one over the other. They are both good songs. I have a lot of good memories of people singing along in concert with both of them.

Never been a huge Heart fan despite them being home town girls and my running route regularly passing by one of their houses in Seattle.

Not that that running part had anything to do w/ me not being a fan...probably a non sequitur.  Disregard that last part and put me down for CTTH.  Love it when played live and the audience sings along...pure concert magic.

Crazy on You is phenomenal, and Closer is just good.

I listen to both, but Crazy is one of Hearts best ever.
