«She Drives Me Crazy» is a song recorded by the Fine Young Cannibals, included on their 1988 album The Raw and the Cooked. The song peaked at Number 5 as a single in the band’s native UK in January 1989 (it was released on New Year’s Day) before hitting Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100in the US on 15 April 1989. It also reached Number 3 on the Dutch Top 40.

The unique snare drum «pop» sound was created by recording the snare drum portion separately. A speaker was then placed on top of the snare drum, and a microphone below. The original recording of the snare drum part was played back through the speaker and re-recorded.
