"Crush (1980 Me)" as written by and Darren Stanley/conley Hayes....
Cyndi Lauper Jackson Simon Le Bon I put Eurythmics On Poppin' and Lockin' in the U.S.A Day Glo sweater tied around my neck Studded Denim Big Hair Acid Wash Rubik's Cube My Boom Box

You know it's alright I promise you tonight All you gotta do is Choose Life Got a little crush I just can't get enough of that stuff It's such a rush 1980 Me Got a little crush I just can't get enough of that stuff It's such a rush 1980 Me

Frosted Lipstick Parachute Pants Doc Martins Dead Can Dance Culture Club The Go Go's Pretty In Pink PacMan Asteroids Miami Vice Too early for Vanilla Ice Crimpin' The Poodle Perm And Blond Highlights

You know it's alright I promise you tonight All you gotta say is Have a nice day

Got a little crush I just can't get enough of that stuff It's such a rush 1980 Me Got a little crush I just can't get enough of that stuff It's such a rush 1980 Me Dance baby You know you're gonna have such a good time Welcome to 1980 Me Dance baby You know it's gonna be alright Welcome to 1980 Me

I wish that I could be eleven again That E.T was my friend You know that life was so simple then Times have changed Never be the same The memory remains And the melody inside my heart

You know it's alright No matter how it goes All you gotta do is just say no

Got a little crush I just can't get enough of that stuff It's such a rush 1980 Me Got a little crush I just can't get enough of that stuff It's such a rush 1980 Me Dance baby You know you're gonna have such a good time Welcome to 1980 Me Dance baby You know it's gonna be alright Welcome to 1980 Me

    General CommentNobody's commented on this song?! Crazy people! haha! This song is different from the rest of Darren's stuff, but it has that great funky '80s get-up-off-your-ass-&-dance vibe that I just love. ^-^

    General CommentIt was so smartly written, and has such an 80s vibe...so underrated as most Darren's work.

    General CommentGood call Gabigs. His work is definately allll underrated. Especially here in Canada. No one knows about him anymore at all. Such a shame.
    Anyways, this song is awesome! I've always loved it, since the first time I ever heard it. I think it's just such a creative and expressive song. Listing some great memories, inspirations, and hilarious fads which are a part of growing up...

    General CommentYeah, nobody knows him in Argentina either...when I talk to people about him they stare and me and say "who?"...But I don't care...I mean, thank God we have internet nowadays, if it wasn't then I wouldn't know how to keep in touch with his work. I only wish he can get on making albums despite the fact of not being massive anymore (makes me so mad, he's the best singer I've ever heard!).

    General CommentI feel you! Exactly, without the internet I would know no b-sides of his or SG...it would be complete chaos for me. Darren is my world in the art of music! So I know how you feel! ;)

    General Commentlol well people HAVE heard of him here in Austalia, but after all we can claim him as our own, him growing up in brisbane and all that. however i agree with everyone in syaing that he is totally underrated. when savage garden together everyone here lvoed him, now they just dont care. yet he still continues to produce good music... shame really

    General CommentI love Darren songs, I don't like this beat that much though. But I get the idea, is supposed to ressemble the 80's, and is actually one of Darren's faves from this album
