The Horror Honeys: February Honey Jam - '#1 Crush'

February Honey Jam - '#1 Crush'

Twisted Love Songs

I will lie for you
Beg and steal for you
I will crawl on hands and knees until you see
You're just like me

Violate all The love that I'm missing
Throw away all the pain that I'm living
You will believe in me
And I can never be ignored

In 1996, Baz Lurhman's gorgeous re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet made Leonardo DiCaprio famous-er, tried to capitalize on Claire Dane's popularity (ugh that crying face) and had one of the best soundtracks I've ever had the pleasure of wearing through (I'm not kidding, I broke it from overplaying).  Deep in the 90s when pretty much every teenage girl was embroiled in a toxic relationship, Romeo and Juliet reminded us that we weren't alone and captured exactly what it felt like to be IN LOVE at 16.  But #1 Crush isn't about that... #1 Crush is about just that... a crush, a not-so-far-off object of affection - the ubiquitous "I feel invisible" thing, added together, makes this song even more twisted and earns it a place on our twisted playlist. ~HH
