I met up with a friend last night for drinks and learned that her daughter is now producing films in, where else, L.A. One of the things I am looking forward to upon the release of her film, Undiscovered Gyrl, is the original music on it from several young female musicians. Maybe the writer-director, Allison Burnett, couldn’t afford to pay for the rights of songs from established bands, but in any case he held a contest. This brilliant idea led to the introduction of new talent including Niki Black. Her song, Until You’re Mine, struck me immediately of a time when as a 15 year old I suffered relentlessly from a crush on a boy who did not return my affections.
He was not the first crush I had, nor the last as I was a bit boy crazy. Out of curiosity I looked up this same boy at age 21 and *shudder* after meeting him briefly was very happy that I had let that crush go.
Do you have a favourite crush song or movie?
