This cracks me up now - the words to the song have absolutely nothing to do with my situation. I think I may have even manufactured a crush just to mope around to this song. But in any case, I think this song is one of the earliest additions to my life's soundtrack - at least, one that I discovered on my own as opposed to my parents' influence. I had just discovered the radio that year and was quickly becoming a disciple of Casey Kasem.
On a side note, this is the first time I've watched the music video for that song. Isn't it hilarious? I love the turtleneck.
