Mix: Crushin’

crushin mix, crushes, valentine's day mix, love mix, i like you mix

It’s February, American Heart Month, Creative Romance Month, Hallmark’s Valentine’s Day, the month of love! For some people, crushes develop into a relationship or unconditional love and in other cases, a crush is just that, a crushin’ blow to one’s ego or delicate heart. It can be hard to describe the initial bliss that comes with finding someone new and sometimes music captures these feelings best.

Listen to tunes for the ladies and gents who find themselves crushin’ during the love season…

“It would mean everything to me if we could take a holiday.” Run away with me?

“But I, I’ve waited my life for you.” For those times you meet someone new and have that exact feeling.

“If you’re runnin’ away, then I’m lookin’ for you / And if you’ve lost your way, I’m seein’ you through.” Seems a bit stalkerish, but it’s actually really sweet when he sings it!

“Please forgive me if I act a little strange, for I know not what I do / Feels like lightning running through my veins, every time I look at you.”


DEE’S PICKS:

I have been streaming the new Jim James album on NPR for a while now, it’s so great. “Babe, let’s get one thing clear / There’s much more star dust when you’re near / I think I’m really being sincere / I want a new life, ummm, a new life / With you”

Classic. “I don’t like you, but I love you / Seems that I’m always thinkin’ of you”

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFHkfnyAstg?hl=en"><img src="http://thespecblog.com/wp-content/plugins/images/play-tub.png" alt="Play" style="border:0px;" /></a>Artist: The Postal Service | Song: Be Still My Heart
In honor of the band’s reunion. “And I thought, be still my heart / This could be a brand new start, with you. / And it will be clear / If I wake up and you’re still here with me in the morning.”

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VzBzEinYUQ?hl=en"><img src="http://thespecblog.com/wp-content/plugins/images/play-tub.png" alt="Play" style="border:0px;" /></a>Artist: Of Montreal | Song: Don’t Ask Me to Explain
“How am I supposed to let it show when I don’t even know? / Don’t ask me to explain. / Besides, I don’t want to be the one whose coming out first / I’d really like to but I’m just too shy. / Don’t ask me to explain.”

This song is the definition of a crush, no? “Why can’t you want me like the other boys do? / They stare at me while I stare at you / Why can’t I keep you safe as my own? / One moment I have you the next you are gone”
