It is one of those songs that has the own cover because it someday became extremely popular. In the case of ‘Butterfly’, this someday was in 1999 – 18 years were gone from that day.
As this song has the major significance in the world of show business, there have been numerous critical receptions but not with critical critics but with accolades towards this piece. Continuing speech about the clip, it can be named as an interesting mixture of fantasy, passion, expectation, anticipation, rock, love, lust, and unzipped feelings.
If to describe love in the terms of rock music and subtle images full of hints, then this clip has perfectly coped with this idea. It has only hints on what will be done but it has no direct pictures of it. Crazy Town band is special in this sense of the effectiveness of revealing some internal images from the head combining them with the music and it greatly differentiates them from the modern singers like Nicki Minaj or Lady Gaga, who use mostly only direct pictures in their clips.
It is hard to tell whether the remix on the song will be good or bad so it is pretty explainable why there are only a few remixes exist on it. As for weekly charts positions, there are several countries who rated it at the peak position number one, namely: Austria, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Romania, Switzerland, and the United States. The end-of-year charts were also pretty nice – it has finished in the top 30. In Germany, it was even included in the top hundred of the best songs of the past millennium, landing in 59th position. As for the certification, this song managed to reach several times platinum in Australia, Germany, Norway, and Sweden. It is the gold in Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, and the United States and the only country that considered it silver was the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, the official sales were not more than 1 million exemplars in particular country but the overall sales were totally above 2 million worldwide.
To consider the essence of the lyrics – it is not really far from the essence of the clip – a guy tells that he wants a certain girl, she's the best, fantastic for him, he cannot sleep because of her, he cannot eat and only he thinks about how to get into bed with her. The butterfly that is tattooed on her back, draw his attention. He thinks that she has some hidden messages towards him but there is nothing she hid actually – she really wants the same thing he wants to do with her. The way of putting this desire into lyrics and the way in which the words are spoken on the music gets us to the way that this is one of the most interesting feedings of the lustful desire in the music up to these days. It must be considered a real masterpiece of soft rock music. Reference: Get more info about Crazy Town , their album "The Gift of Gam"e and the "Butterfly" song
