Who is your biggest musical crush? As in, who do you pine after? Who do you get all Tiger Beat about? Who makes your boyfriend / girlfriend / husband / wife jealous?

BIG BANG BABY, Monday, 7 March 2005 23:26 (fourteen years ago) link

Jan from Mouse On Mars has always had me all aflutter. Those squinty little eyes! That boyish tousled hair! Rrrowwwrrr . . .

Romullo from Phoenecia is the other IDM scenester that has me totally crushed out. Cute band alert for realz.

As I already said on the noise board, Chris Corsano's rather foxy too.

I definitely had a big crush on Liz Phair for years. Who didn't though?? That was around the middle 90's - no one since though..

Haha, I also have had a crush on Jan from MoM for years! Aside from that, er, most of my musical crushes have been indie losers who I end up going out with (I'm not very good at fancying famous people).

Mandy Moore. Because she's cute and sweet and I never got the sweet girls. She's like that girl in high school that you (or maybe just me) were intimidated by because of how sweet and innocent she seemed. I think I tend to have crushes nowadays on the kind of girl I've never had. I feel guilty for sort of having a crush on her though and I don't know why. I guess I never got past that shit..

xxxxxxxpost. Ken, Cosey has always had a certain undefineable appeal. Sort of intelligent, arty and dirty all at the same time.

But the ultimate rock chick for me is Kim Deal. She may not be the most obviously beautifulwoman in rock but bot has she got something! And she's 'one of the lads' as well!!

Laryssa Strickland (sp?) from the Laughing Hyaenas kissed me drunkenly once at the Troubadour in LA and almost threw up in my mouth. It was not sexy.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Friday, 6 May 2005 05:37 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, to prove my point about the infrequency of these good encounters in my life, the aging women of Voice Of The Beehive tried to get me to go back to their hotel with them after I mixed their radio conclave comeback attempt. I respectfully declined...

Quoted from another poster on the "Return Of My Bloody Valentine" thread, with alterations: Kevin Shields and Cat Power I are totally gonna get married and sit in an apartment for the rest of their our lives getting stoned and watching kung fu movies in Spanish and eating lentils and duct-taping over the windows and bitching about how nobody understands how hard it is for them us to make music. FYI.

I always believe my musical taste is mainly dictated by my crushes rather than by the music itself.
My biggest crushes :
James Dean Bradfield / Manics
Babydaddy / Scissor sisters
James Murphy / LCD soundsystem
Simon Ratcliffe / Basememnt jaxx
I guess only one in that list is into guys so i should FOCUS my attention...

I can tell right away that Roisin is too much woman for me, and I've always fancied Sarah more as a "gal pal."

Natalie Imbruglia is perfect when she's not too glammed out.
Beth Orton
Sharleen Spiteri

I know everyone on this list born before 1980 crushed on Justine Frischmann. Why aren't you admitting it?
