The return of Netflix’s hit The Umbrella Academy has had a near takeover on Tunefind’s popular music chart. Season 2 returned on July 31st and fans quickly jumped in to track down all the music moments. The top song last week goes to a haunting cover version of ‘Crazy,’ originally by Gnarls Barkley.
Near the end of the first episode, there’s a startling view of Diego’s eyes as he wakes up in a padded cell and the eerie instrumental of ‘Crazy’ begins. The jazzy rhythm soundtracks his struggle to stand while wearing a straight-jacket. Daniela Andrade’s ethereal voice comes in as Diego continues to struggle.
