12 Songs We All Put On A Mixtape To Tell Our Crush How We Felt

- Page 1

What do you do when that guy or girl you see all the time in the high school cafeteria just doesn't seem to know that you exist? Express your feelings in song, of course! But don't sing them yourself, oh no. Let's face it, you don't exactly have a voice meant for topping the charts.

Instead, we used to rely on the old tradition of the mix tape (and later the mix CD) to let the one that our heart yearned for know just how we felt about them. If you ever did this, one of these 12 songs was almost definitely on there.

Garbage - "#1 Crush"

Shirley Manson has a hell of a voice, and there was nothing like a badass lady telling you just how she (IE the one who sent you the song) felt about you.

Peter Gabriel - "In Your Eyes"

We blame the movie Say Anything for this one, but hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Jennifer Paige - "Crush"

Seriously, the song so apt that its one word title says all you need to know about it.

Prince - "I Wanna Be Your Lover"

Prince was the smoothest SOB around, and in our minds there was nobody more qualified to try to woo a crush.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Maps"

We can't always understand what Karen O is saying, but the part where she goes “Wait, they don’t love you like I love you anyway” is all you need.

These next few songs were the ones that REALLY expressed just how you felt...

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's


'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent

Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the
