restless.doing the dasher

Because 41 songs ain’t enough.

Feel free to suggest more because I like pretending to be that girl who knows a lot of cool music.

1. “Can you tell” – Ra Ra Riot

Crushing lyrics:

Have I been too discreet
How long am I supposed to wait
I think about you nightly
Oh can you tell I’m losing sleep?

2. “The more you ignore me the closer I get” – Morrissey

Crushing lyrics (more like stalking lyrics):

I will creep
into your thoughts
like a bad debt
that you can’t pay
take the easy way
and give in

Now that’s just creepy

3. “Love song” – The Cure

Crushing lyrics:

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

4. “Pictures of you” – The Cure

Crushing lyrics:

I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
And I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel

5. “Just like honey” – The Jesus and Mary Chain

Crushing lyrics:

Walking back to you 
Is the hardest thing that 
I can do 

6. “I won’t say I’m in love” – Megara (Hercules OST)

Crushing lyrics: everything loljk

Who’d’ya think you’re kiddin’
He’s the Earth and heaven to you
Try to keep it hidden
Honey, we can see right through you
Girl, ya can’t conceal it
We know how ya feel and
Who you’re thinking of

Speaking of Disney…

7. “That’s how you know” – Enchanted cast (Enchanted OST)

Crushing lyrics:

You’ve got to show her you need her
Don’t treat her like a mind reader
Each day do something to need her
To believe you love her

8. “Something there” – Beauty and the Beast cast (Beauty and the Beast)

Crushing lyrics:

She glanced this way
I thought I saw
And when we touched she didn’t shudder at my paw
No it can’t be, I’ll just ignore
But then she’s never looked at me that way before

And yes I love show tunes

8. “Somebody to love” – Anne Hathaway (Ella Enchanted)

Crushing lyrics:

Can anybody find me somebody to love 
Ooh, each morning I get up I die a little 
Can barely stand on my feet 
(Take a look at yourself) Take a look in the mirror and cry (and cry) 
Lord what you’re doing to me (yeah yeah) 

Kinda desperate sounding tho

And what about this glorious 90’s moment (also the reason why I have ridiculously high standards when it comes to guys)

9. “Can’t take my eyes off you” – Heath Ledger (Ten Things I Hate About You OST)

Crushing lyrics:

You’re just too good to be true 
Can’t take my eyes off of you 
You’d be like heaven to touch 
I wanna hold you so much 
At long last love has arrived 
And I thank God I’m alive 
You’re just too good to be true 
Can’t take my eyes off of you 

Screw you, romantic movies ok. Anyway, the next song reminds me of nights in the city…in December 🙂

10. “The way you look tonight” – Frank Sinatra

Crushing lyrics:

Some day, when I’m awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you…
And the way you look tonight.

11. “I want you to want me” – Letters To Cleo (originally by Cheap Trick)

Crushing lyrics (sums up EVERY LOVE STORY EVER):

I want you to want me. 
I need you to need me. 
I’d love you to love me. 
I’m beggin’ you to beg me. 

12. “I hate myself for loving you” – Joan Jett (yeah angry girl rock yeah!)

Crushing lyrics:

I think of you ev’ry night and day 
You took my heart then you took my pride away 

I hate myself for loving you 
Can’t break free from the the things that you do 
I wanna walk but I run back to you that’s why 
I hate myself for loving you 

13. “No one’s gonna love you” – Band of Horses

Crushing lyrics:

Anything to make you smile 
You are the ever-living ghost of what once was 
I never want to hear you say 
That you’d be better off 
Or you liked it that way 

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do 
No one’s gonna love you more than I do 

14. “Maps” – The Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Crushing lyrics:

Wait, they don’t love you like I love you.

The acoustic version sounds lovely too.

15. “Naive” – The Kooks

Crushing lyrics:

How could this been done
By such a smiling sweetheart.
Ohh and your sweet and pretty face
In such an ugly world
Something so beautiful.

16. “She moves in her own way” – The Kooks

Crushing lyrics:

Well uh oh, oh I love her because she moves in her own way
Well uh oh, oh she came to my show just to hear about my day

17. “Closer” – Travis

Crushing lyrics:

I’ve had enough, of this parade.
I’m thinking of, the words to say.
We open up, unfinished parts,
Broken up, its so mellow.

18. “Closing time” – Semisonic

Crushing lyrics:

Closing time
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

19. “Boyfriend” – Best Coast

Crushing lyrics:

There’s nothing worse than sitting all alone at home
And waiting waiting waiting waiting waiting by the phone
I hope that he’s at home waiting by his phone
I wonder if he knows that I want him

I wish he was my boyfriend

Also this:

The other girl is not like me
She’s prettier and skinnier
She has a college degree
I dropped out when I was seventeen
If I could only get her out of the picture
Then he would know how much I want him

Man, that hits close to home.

20. “Crazy for you” – Best Coast

Crushing lyrics:

I can’t do anything without you
Can’t do anything with you
Drive me crazy but I love you
Make me lazy but I love you
Want to hate you but then I kiss you
Want to kill you but then I miss you
Drive me crazy but I love you
Make me lazy but I love you

Also:

Maybe I’m just crazy
Crazy for you, baby

What is it with Best Coast guys

21. “When I’m with you” – Best Coast

I hate sleeping alone

In this world there’s nothing I would rather do
Cos I’m happy just to dance with you

31. “Something” – The Beatles

Crushing lyrics (again, I’ll post the entire song because it’s too effing beautiful):

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me

Don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You’re asking me will my love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me

Don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

32. “Baby I love you” – The Ramones

Crushing lyrics:

Have I ever told you
How good it feels to hold you
It isn’t easy to explain

And though I’m really tryin’
I think I may start cryin’
My heart can’t wait another day

33. “Oh oh I love her so” – The Ramones

Crushing lyrics:

I met her at the Burger King we fell in love by the soda machine
So we took the car downtown the kids were hanging out all around
Then we went down to Coney Island on the coaster and around again
And no one’s gonna ever tear us apart cause she’s my sweetheart

Someone take me to Burger King

34. “Just kids” – F.U.R.S

Crushing lyrics (the only lyrics I understood fully):

We were just kids when we went and fell in love

Acoustic here.

35. “Parks” – Up Dharma Down

Crushing lyrics:

Thought I was tough to never care enough to what everybody’s saying

Waiting on the world to take you away while I remain here where I’m staying

O hasty patience help me let it out, don’t like the way that I’m behaving

36. “Feelings” – Up Dharma Down

Crushing lyrics:

I wanna know
Do you feel anything
As you go on your way
Driving home
As I sleep alone tonight
I wanna know
Do you feel anything
For me

Is there anything you like to say tonight?
Before I go
Before I go…forever… 

Medyo masakit.

37. “I’ve been lonely for so long” – Frederick Night

Crushing lyrics:

‘Cause I’ve been lonely for so long
Don’t seem like happiness will come along
I’ve been lonely for so long
Don’t seem like happiness will come along

Yes, I know what it feels like to be lonely
To have your friends turn their backs on you, yes I’ve been lonely
To never know the real meaning of peace of mind, yes

“Won’t somebody help me please.”

The same as I love you
You’ll always love me too
This love isn’t good unless 
It’s me and you

Crushing lyrics:

You mesmerize me, with diamond eyes
I try to fool myself to think I’ll be alright
But I am losing all control, my mind, my heart, my body and my soul.

40. “241 (My Favorite Song)” – Rivermaya

Crushing lyrics:

I wanted to turn you on
My favorite song.
Wanted to be near you
But somebody owns you now.

I love you with a fire,
Ablazing till times end
But what good is a heart
When it shudders to speak.
I guess it’s too late now.

41. “Maude” – Sheila and the Insects

Crushing lyrics:

Let me hold your hand again, just once again
Can you believe it, 
Its been seven years since I have had a friend
Look into my eyes and see the fading light of memories,
Of half-forgotten smiles beneath your summer skies

42. “Luna Grace” – Sheila and the Insects

Crushing lyrics:

I’m holding back from your embrace
For the third time for the third time
Elusive face, nocturnal flair
On my own time, consenting crime
