About "Mad About You"

"Mad About You" is a song by the Belgian band Hooverphonic, released as the lead single from their third studio album, The Magnificent Tree (2000). "Mad About You" is often considered the band's masterpiece and its biggest worldwide success.

The song features a sweeping string arrangement that typifies the trip hop genre. It is also similar in style to a Bond-style film theme, with its dramatic orchestration and lyrics. The song is about a forbidden love, an idea also conveyed in the video, with the lyrics of "Can someone tell me if it's wrong to be so mad about you?".

In an interview with MNM, Alex Callier revealed that the inspiration for the song came from his encounters with Cathy Dennis, who he had first met at a songwriting camp in 1998 where they had had a disagreement over fishy wine, and he also recalled a wild car ride with her through London, occasionally driving in the wrong lane. Anecdotes that ended up being referenced in the lyrics of Mad About You.
