Sinatra - Strangers in the Night

I had this on a karaoke sampler disc, and my baritone melted her heart before it froze up and shattered. But at least I'm not bitter...

"Pop Song '89" by R. E. M.

j3s / November 2, 2005 12:15 PM

"Star 6 & 7 8 9" by The Orb, though to be honest, almost anything off The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld reminds me of my first love.

Cinnamon / November 2, 2005 12:16 PM

First crush: Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears
First "What I Thought Was Love": Round and Round by Ratt

Enjoy the Silence by Depeche Mode

atomly / November 2, 2005 12:23 PM

Is it considered cheating to say my own songs?

I associate this song (mp3) in particular.

And then there's a whole record about the breakup a few years later.

Santos / November 2, 2005 12:24 PM

haha, that first sublime album.

weevil / November 2, 2005 12:29 PM

Listening to Air's 10,000 Hz Legend while napping together on a Saturday.

Heart is sad now.

Joseph J. Finn / November 2, 2005 12:36 PM

Cure's "It's Friday I'm In Love" back in the summer of 1992.

Paula / November 2, 2005 12:36 PM

'Let's Pretend' by The Right Profile. I gave the jerk my 7" of it when he moved away in high school. Even eBay has proven unsuccessful in finding another copy.

Andy / November 2, 2005 12:41 PM

"Medicine Show", by Big Audio Dynamite.

"Just Like Heaven," The Cure

Y A J / November 2, 2005 1:12 PM

The hubby and I first fell in love all those years ago to Talking Head's This Must Be The Place & whole U2 Joshua Tree album. Ahhh, vinyl.

Veronica / November 2, 2005 1:13 PM

First crush? Gosh, I don't even know, that was so long ago. I think that may have been before I had discovered my passionate love for pop music. As you may know, I lived in NM where there are no good radio stations.

But first, kinda for-real relationship? Not so long ago. "The Reason" by Hoobastank and "My Immortal" by Evanescence. Both remind me of the breakup. The former because of the lyrics, the latter because it was exceedingly popular. I heard it all the freakin' time and it made me sad.

leah / November 2, 2005 1:16 PM

My first crush & I were at a school rec night when he gave me my first kiss. We were 12 & he was significantly shorter than I. He got on his tiptoes and I remember seeing these pursed lips coming straight at me from about 8" down. And "Oh Donna" by Richie Valens was playing at the time.

Every time I hear that song I see the slow-mo' lips coming up at me and I giggle.

secretadmirer / November 2, 2005 1:25 PM

"Extrovert" - XTC

emi - sex pistols

paul / November 2, 2005 2:07 PM

Well...okay, it's "porcelain" by moby (due to the amount it was played back then)


"A Hard Days Night" by the Beatles

amy / November 2, 2005 2:20 PM

2 Albums...

1) Blind Man's Zoo - 10,000 Maniacs
2) Lincoln - They Might Be Giants

And anything on AM 1000 in the early '90's when talk radio was hip.


kt / November 2, 2005 2:32 PM

"car" -built to spill

i remember dragging the turntable into the bedroom and singing that song in post-coital bliss early in my last relationship. didn't end well but that memory is still pretty pure.

jen*nee / November 2, 2005 2:50 PM

Don't laugh--"Two Princes" by the Spin Doctors. I caught the love of my life mouthing the words to that song at a party in high school. He was across the room, felt me looking at him, and looked up right when the words "marry me" came on. I melted.
Also, "Take Me Out to othe Ballgame." Same guy. After our Spin Doctor phase, we used to go to a lot of ballgames.

Alex / November 2, 2005 3:37 PM

"Well I Wonder" by The Smiths

Lisa / November 2, 2005 3:40 PM

"Into the Mystic" by Van Morrison

Naz / November 2, 2005 3:40 PM

Guns N' Roses - I Think About You.

While my first relationships was but a farce, the second and first real one was defined by our common love for GNR. She was 15, I was 15, I was graduating high school while she was not and we listened to and watched a lot of GNR stuff.

Those were some days (long ago).

mg / November 2, 2005 3:43 PM

i can't think of just one song, so I have to name a couple of albums:

digable planets - reachin'
common - one day it will all make sense

*feeling all warm and fuzzy*

anne / November 2, 2005 3:56 PM

I can't remember what went with the first crush, but my junior year boyfriend in high school I totally associate with the Matthew Sweet song "Sweet Voice" off of the "Girlfriend" album. I used to play it over and over again while we talked on the phone. That is, until he said, "What the hell are you doing listening to one song for the past hour?" Yup, busted. I stopped putting it on repeat after that.

Same boyfriend, on the night we broke up...oh yeah, that was at Prom. I'll always remember the last song they played at the booze free/dance 'till dawn party at the civic center. It was 5:59a.m., and they put on R. Kelly's "Bump and Grind". Now, scamper off to your homes, you little sleep-deprived sober teens! Scoot!

Amy / November 2, 2005 3:56 PM

Summer of 68 - Pink Floyd

loir / November 2, 2005 3:56 PM

Oh yeah, Air Supply! I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you, I knew you were right, believing for so long...

was the heartbreaking soundtrack to my post first kiss, mopey self. We met on vacation, he was from Indiana and thought I was 16, but when he found out I was 13 he let me down gently.

I can remember walking in the halls that fall at jr high and standing under a speaker trying to hear that cheesy love song over the din of my fellow classmates. They were so young, they didn't understand!

When I heard it at the roller rink, I had to go in the bathroom and cry!

Now I think how lucky I was to be kissed for the first time on a beach by a cute 17 year old boy who had the decency to not take advantage of a love struck 13 year old. Todd from Carmel Indiana, thanks!

Ashamed / November 2, 2005 4:13 PM

"If You Leave," Simple Minds

Can't get more self-pitying than that. And, oh, I was. So very much so.

emily / November 2, 2005 4:39 PM

first love: The Cure's "Love Song". i'm surprised nobody mentioned that one yet.

second love: "Earth Angel"

last and final love: "You Don't Know I..." by The Slackers. yep, hubb and i fell in love over some ska.

amy / November 2, 2005 4:59 PM

The albums of Disintegration by the Cure and Louder than Bombs by the Smiths. Just this morning I was listening to a song from Distintegration on my Ipod on the L and it brought me right back to those morose days of sitting plaintively in my bedroom, listening to music, pining for my crush. He later became my first boyfriend, and then eventually I dumped him. But oh, to be 14 in 1989 again...

Emerson Dameron / November 2, 2005 5:28 PM

Nick Cave's Let Love In, in toto. Oddly, it's one of my few high school classics that I can still spin without grimacing.

Erica / November 2, 2005 5:42 PM

Slackers: "I Still Love You." VERY Sweet ska song
Bouncing Souls: "Johnny X." I played this 7" so loud one night when we first started dating that my landlord threatened to evict me.
Bouncing Souls: "Kate is Gr8"
Reverend Horton Heat: "Nurture My Pig"

Funny songs that remind me of him ...
Santana: Smooth (it was soooo played out when we first met and we hate pop music, so it was naturally a song we loved to hate)

Rod Stewart: Have I Told You Lately (the cheesiest song ever. I know Van was the original singer, but Rod is God.

tony / November 2, 2005 6:35 PM

Tommy Tutone. 867-5309 (Jenny). No joke.

Andy / November 2, 2005 7:34 PM

It wasn't my first significant relationship, but I've always associated Air's Moon Safari with one of my ex-girlfriends. The CD still sits on my shelf, but I can honestly say that I haven't listened to it in almost 6 years.

nico / November 2, 2005 8:11 PM

"the letter" - natalie merchant

christian / November 2, 2005 8:45 PM

I'm trying to remember, but that was so long ago. I associate lots of music to first love and such, and my taste in music to my first love; she made lots of mix tapes for me at the time. I guess bands I associate would be more appropriate, Depeche Mode, the Cure, the Smiths and so on.

"If You Leave" by OMD, pretty much the whole "Pretty In Pink" soundtrack.

Leelah / November 2, 2005 9:11 PM

I had a huge crush on this guy in high school and after he finally kissed me... this would be two years later when I was in college, mind... the first song I heard was "Green Shirt" by Elvis Costello. Even now, nearly twenty years later, I think of that guy when I hear it.

R / November 2, 2005 9:35 PM

"I'd die without you," PM Dawn. Such a great song, such a lame guy.

Jason / November 2, 2005 9:53 PM

Lately "Kiss the Canvas" by Drowningman seems appropriate.

And The Smiths, The Cure, Swans when the mood is just right, and so on. You know.

slb / November 2, 2005 10:14 PM

first terrible unrequited crush: "troy" by sinead o'connor and "untitled" by the cure
second one: "good feeling" by violent femmes
first decent relationship turned bad breakup: "baby's got sauce" by g. love and special sauce
next (bad) relationship turned bad breakup: john zorn's naked city album and anything by the boredoms
current 9yr long great relationship: pretty much everything since we live together. but esp. "coolest little monster" by electric frankenstein and black flag's damaged album really bring me back...

Mac / November 2, 2005 10:47 PM

"Little 15"--Depeche Mode

daruma / November 2, 2005 10:59 PM

My first serious boyfriend introduced me to Leonard Cohen via "The Future." He was smart and artsy and I still love him (the boyfriend and Leonard Cohen!)

Steve / November 2, 2005 11:31 PM

Cheesy but true: "Stand by Me" by Ben E. King. 'Cuz we saw the movie on one of our first dates. I'd frequently segue it into "Train in Vain" on my high school radio shows because I thought the two tunes kinda complemented one another....

Sarah / November 3, 2005 7:54 AM

Ironically, the song I associate most with my first love is "What's Love Got to Do With It" by Tina Turner.

My first successful, love relationship had Moondance by Van Morrison as its theme song.

steven / November 3, 2005 8:29 AM

Bitchin' Camero, Dead Milkmen. Back in high school, during the 'courtship' phase, me and the now ex-girlfriend sat in her driveway at night and sang Dead Milkmen songs. BC was our fave.

steven / November 3, 2005 8:30 AM

That's Bitchin' Camaro

Ashamed (Again) / November 3, 2005 8:45 AM

Totally conflated two self-pity songs. Christian's right: "If You Leave," is OMD. What I was really thinking of was "Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds (from Breakfast club?). But I played the OMD one over and over and over again, too. My college years were the lame parts of John Hughes movies. Sigh.

shermann / November 3, 2005 8:57 AM

Stevie Wonder - I Believe (When I Fall in Love it will be Forever)

I got in a fight with my partner and went to bed angry. When my alarm went off the next morning, this song was playing.

Pete / November 3, 2005 9:01 AM

"You're My Blessing" by Miracle Legion.

N S Warmonger / November 3, 2005 9:04 AM

"Flies on the Windscreen," with the line "Death is everywhere, there are flies on the windscreen" by Depeche Mode playing on 97X as my first girlfriend in high school broke up with me. Pathetic, oh so maudlin, and yet so approprpriate - for a 15 year old ... Compounding that, my first girlfriend in college split up with me. I had to drive her home at that point. I turn the key, the radio kicks on, "I know you want to leave me, but I refuse to let you go ..." blares out. "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," by the Temptations. Lesson? Turn off the damn radio when you're talking with your soon to be ex-girlfriend.

libby / November 3, 2005 9:10 AM

my first boyfriend dedicated to me "patience" by GnR during the 'hot 9 at 9' radio show. i felt super famous when that happened. my first intense young love? the tune was "crystal ship" by the doors. then, my friends, we spiral into uncool territory where the path of once loved but lost is littered with dave matthews band songs... these days there are too many to mention. i think that means i've found the one.

waleeta / November 3, 2005 9:20 AM

"You Oughtta Know" by Alanis Morissette

Charlie D / November 3, 2005 9:29 AM

Stay in Time......... by Off Broadway

p / November 3, 2005 9:30 AM

i'm feeling the pm dawn, but come on where's the r'and'b feeling for the feelings of you and another. Boyz II Men- End of the road. Then Ugly Kid Joe upon breakup if i recall correctly.

holden / November 3, 2005 9:41 AM

first crush: 'ordinary world' duran duran
first relationship: 'dancing queen' abba (what can i say, we went to A LOT of weddings together and that is the quintessential reception dance song)
current relationship: '8:16' 311

eep / November 3, 2005 10:14 AM

"As I Lay Me Down," by Sophie B. Hawkins. It was all over the radio then, and it got played over and over and over and over and... Now I can't hear it without thinking of him. And giggling.

Robin / November 3, 2005 10:21 AM

Oh Mario...unrequited crush of a lifetime. Remember when we drove around in your BMW 2002 and you blasted "Brilliant Mind" from the Some Kind of Wonderful Sountrack? That was pretty much the highlight of my 16th year.

"You're at the stage - you want empty words said in everybody's writing...I want to know you're secrets - but you are not telling."

Roni / November 3, 2005 10:23 AM long ago, but here are a few that still make me laugh & smile:

Breathe - "How Can I Fall?"
Color Me Badd - "All for You"
Jim Croce - "Time in a Bottle" --> ok, this one makes me cry at how stupid I was, but that's another story.

paul / November 3, 2005 10:48 AM

I wish it had been Puppy Love by Donnie Osmond, but it turned out to be Psycho Killer, by The Talking Heads.

dan / November 3, 2005 10:59 AM

First crush: "One" by U2, though she prefered "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins.

First "real" relationship: Air's "Kelly, Watch the Stars" and "Angel" by Massive Attack

Jamshyd / November 3, 2005 11:36 AM

"Three Days" by Jane's Addiction. Not because we ever had a threesome, but because first love was anguished and grandiose. :)

Charlie / November 3, 2005 12:07 PM

Love Bits by Def Leppard

e_five / November 3, 2005 12:08 PM

My fav:
"In Your Eyes" Peter Gabriel

His fav:
"When I Think of You" by Janet Jackson

Oh my. The fall of 1986 was pretty crazy.

Staci / November 3, 2005 12:42 PM

First middle school slow dance: "18 and Life" by Skid Row

First love: Anything from "Ten" by Pearl Jam because we listened to it a lot. He loved "Black."

Oddur / November 3, 2005 1:20 PM

Ain't no sunshine - Bill Weathers
Wish you were here - Pink Floyd

amf / November 3, 2005 1:40 PM

"Teenage Wasteland" (Baba O'Reilly) by the Who. I was 11, he was 16. So, I guess I wasn't actually a teenager. I wasn't wasted either, thank god.

red / November 3, 2005 1:55 PM

Barry White's "Let's Stay Together"
Leonard Cohen "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye"

meg / November 3, 2005 2:06 PM

After my first date ever, after my first kiss ever, I came home and listened to Out of Time straight through a couple of times, alone, in the dark, laying on my bedroom floor.

Really, adolescence is such a dramatic time.

That album still gets me, though.

jen / November 3, 2005 2:34 PM

i can't recall any memories between first loves and specific songs. but i do know that during dramatic moments in my life, "wave of multilation" by the pixies (the slow version from the pump up the volume soundtrack) and "with or without you" by U2 would often find themselves on repeat on my CD player.

Bendy / November 3, 2005 3:03 PM

Siouxsie and the Banshees - Christine. But she like Dead Milkmen

PG / November 3, 2005 3:27 PM

First "heavy petting" -- The Cars "Moving in Stereo" while making out in the backseat of Ray Sheet's car.

rick / November 3, 2005 3:38 PM

PG gets the award for nastayness.

first tongue-in-mouth: sisters of mercy -- "temple of love"

first "real" relationship: VU -- "i'm beginning to see the light"

kim / November 3, 2005 3:43 PM

at the six grade school picnic the boy that i had a crush on asked me to dance to "talk dirty to me" by poison. it reminds me of the DQ and holding his hand.

Jack / November 3, 2005 4:01 PM

"Dizzy" - Throwing Muses

Bryan / November 3, 2005 4:04 PM

It's not a song, it's a cassette... "Crowded House," on an auto-reverse tape deck, over and over, four or five times because neither of us wanted to stop making out to go put something else on.

Bittersweet / November 3, 2005 4:21 PM

He wasn't my all time crush, but I'll never forget "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye" by Boys II Men. I was infatuated with a basketball player (me and most girls I knew) my sophomore year. At one of the school dances, they cut off the fun music for a slow song, the last dance. As I went to exit the floor (having no date, let alone a boyfriend), he came up to me and asked me to dance. Lets just say I was floored.

Vanessa / November 3, 2005 5:32 PM

"Kiss From A Rose" by Seal

j / November 3, 2005 5:40 PM

first crush = "borderline. feels like i'm going out of my mind...."

Beerzie Boy / November 3, 2005 5:49 PM

"Bargain", by The Who

gina r / November 3, 2005 6:18 PM

I can smell the sweaty Y-dance musk as I recall 2 songs...

Angel by Aerosmith

You're the reason I live
You're the reason I die
You're the reason I give
When I break down and cry
Don't need no reason why
Baby, Baby
You’re my angel...come and save me tonight.

And then sadly, a few weeks later...

Can't Cry Hard Enough (For You to Hear Me Now) by The Williams Brothers

Gonna open my eyes
And see for the first time
I let go of you like
A child letting go of his kite

There it goes, up in the sky
There it goes, beyond the clouds
For no reason why
I can't cry hard enough
No, I can't cry hard enough
For you to hear me now

Melissa / November 3, 2005 8:45 PM

Ron / November 4, 2005 8:42 AM

Somebody put something in my drink - Ramones

Asail / November 4, 2005 9:41 AM

"Satellite," by DMB. A strange choice, perhaps, but we slow-danced to it once in high school, and you sang softly in my ear.

Hobbzie / November 4, 2005 9:41 AM

Three entries here:

VERY first: Fall 1978. 7th Grade dance: Do That To Me One More Time: Captain & Tennille.

First adult relationship, college: Do Wot You Do: INXS, from Pretty In Pink

Now: with the engagement on: I Do: The Marvelows {doo wop group covered by J. Geils in the 80s}

So many dos, maybe it should've been De Do Do Do De Da Da Da.

Yeah, laugh you bastards. I was 12 at the time.

yes, this spans many, many years. ah, well.

Carrie / November 4, 2005 10:24 AM

Gah! Band camp dance: Hold onto the Night, Richard Marx

Another fun song association: My best friend from high school and I dated for all of one week before I dumped him. In his heart-brokenness, he wrote lyrics for the Kenny G theme from the movie Dying Young! Sweeter memory for its sheer cheesiness...

Robert / November 4, 2005 11:34 AM

First Crush association: The Wonder Woman theme song. Linda Carter was(is) hot.

The K!D / November 4, 2005 2:54 PM

Did I start dating/crushing late in life? Or are you all really old? Or do you just listen to old/bad music? Or are these mostly jokes?

I'm not hating, I swear, I just through the demographic of this site was younger and had better taste.

leah / November 4, 2005 2:58 PM

Please to define "really old".

Jim Renaud / November 4, 2005 3:43 PM

I had a huge crush on this girl who used to love Tears for Fears, so I bought that album and then in choir class we had to disect a song of our choice to demonstrate we knew verse, chorus, bridge, etc. I picked "Everybody Wants to Rule the World." We ended up "dating" for one week and we kissed in the library and then she dumped me, but it was cool. She was way out of my league. She definitely "ruled my world for those three weeks or so.

I have a similar story but replace Tears for Fears with Terence Trent D'Arby.

My wife and I fell in love while Sloan's Twice Removed was in heavy rotation. I think she married me for introducing her to Nick Drake. He's the secret weapon.

annie / November 4, 2005 4:45 PM

'to be with you' - mr. big.

embarassing, yes. but who isn't in 5th grade?

redliner / November 4, 2005 4:46 PM

and your first crush song has absolutely nothing to do with taste. fate intervenes on the radio, the party host's music collection, the muzak in the mall. . .

"Angie" by the Stones.

Well, "How will I know" by Keke Palmer. The lyrics are so true and describes exactly how I feel.

"I know there is something that I'm feeling
But I can't quite put it into words
It's got me hopin',
Hopin' that you feelin' it too
Cause for me it's a first
Does anyone truly understand what real love is about?
Don't say I'm too young to know what's real
My heart skips a beat
I can hardly breathe
Every time that he comes near

It's so amazing almost crazy how
I'm thinkin' 'bout you lately
Tell me, how in the world did it come to this
It took me by surprise
When you opened my eyes
To hopefully show me what love is

How will I know
Could it be the butterflies I feel whenever I'm with you
How will I know
Or the way I'm at a loss of words I can hardly keep my cool
How will I know
Everyday now stop stop stop I keep thinkin bout you
How will I know I'm in love x2

Somebody tell me
Will I ever know x2

It's so amazing almost crazy how
I'm thinkin' 'bout you lately
Tell me, how in the world did it come to this
It took me by surprise
When you opened my eyes
To hopefully show me what love is x2

Somebody tell me
Will I ever know? x2

If it ain't love
Then tell me why am I always searching for excuses to call?
And if it ain't love
Then tell me why am I always hopin' to see him in the halls?
And if it ain't love
Somebody tell me why I lie awake at night starin' at the walls? (Starin' the halls)
And if this isn't love
Then I don't really need it cause, I'm happy here with no love at all"

That's just some of it, but I love this song so much!

A few other good crush/love songs are:
1. "Crushed" by Rosette
2. "Love This Way" by Eden's Crush
3. "Close To You" by The Carpenters (Old, I know but, their lyrics are so good!)
4. "Close To you" By DJ Bounce (So cute!)
5. "Colors of the Rainbow" By DJ Skeptyk ( I had this song, stuck in my head for weeks!)

I love all of these songs for two main reasons, the lyrics and the music itself are great!

Well, he's not my first crush, but right now I can say I feel like:
~Taylor Swift - Teardrops On My Guitar
~Rosette - Crush
I'm trying to think of more, but I can't cause he's in my head right now.
