You guys. I have a crush. It’s a big one, but I can’t help it! She’s such a dreamboat, I don’t know how I’m expected to function normally, I mean honestly. This is not my natural state of being; usually I find a way to move forward one way or another, but this situation is a little extraordinary. I am so over the moon, it’s disgusting. I feel like this stock image of a girl in the rain with a gross green smoothie looking DONE WITH EVERYTHING.
Is it hopeless? Pretty much definitely! But we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into hopeless limerence.
Anyway, here are some songs about crushes with some songs about banging thrown in because songs about banging are the spice of life. Also please talk about your crush (or your favorite crush song) in the comments. Let’s all hold each other platonically until we can get our romantic lives sorted out.
