Since my Jolene post was somewhat of a success here’s the next song theme post. This is the start of what I expect will be a complete list of crush songs. We’ll make it a contest for kicks. Winner get’s a free cd. 3 points if “crush” is in the title. 2 point if “crush” appears in the song (no “orange crush” songs please just romantic crush songs). 1 point if it’s somewhat related to the theme but the word “crush” doesn’t appear (like Hello Saferide’s “High School Stalker”). This last one will be up to my discretion.
I’m winning 7 to nothing….get cracking. Leave your “crush” songs in the comments – links to the mp3′s are much appreciated.
Jason has catapulted into second place with his suggestion of Je T’aime (moi non plus) by Serge Gainbourg here performed by Donna Summer (courtesy of Dr Drak’s eclectic french blog)
I don’t need much of an excuse to put a song up by The Eels. That it fits perfectly with the theme is a bonus. “Jeannie’s Diary” is about one man’s hope to be on just one page of a girls diary. Also Sebadoh’s “Willing To Wait”. Thanks to Trill 42 who has rocketed into first place.
Howard from Spamnet, Last Sound of Summer and Lonesome Music came through at the last minute with the Teenage Fanclub version of Kylie’s Got A Crush On Us. Not enough to win but darn impressive. The winner of the contest is Trill 42 for the sheer number of recommendions and for sending links to The Eels and Sebadoh.
