What about "I've Got A Crush On You" by Linda Ronstadt? It's on her "What's New" album (1983), which was recorded with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra. It was written by George & Ira Gershwin and has a real 1930s/40s feel to it.

Admittedly, the lyrics here are to be sung by a female, but I HAVE heard a recorded version by a male - the Australian music theatre artist, Anthony Warlow. The male version of the lyrics are shown in red and in brackets.

(Anthony Warlow's versions are on his "Back In The Swing" and "The Best Of Act One" albums.)

How glad the many millions

Of Toms and Dicks and Williams ( of Annabelles and Lillians )

Would be

To capture me

But you had such persistence

You wore down my resistance

I fell

And it was swell

You're my big and brave and handsome Romeo (I'm your big and brave and handsome Romeo )

How I won you I will never never know

It's not that you're attractive (It's not that I'm attractive)

But oh my heart grew active

When you came into view

I've got a crush on you, sweetie pie

All the day and nighttime, hear me sigh

I never had the least notion

That I could fall with so much emotion

Could you coo

Could you care

For a cunning cottage we could share

The world will pardon my mush

Cause I've got a crush, my baby, on you

Could you coo

Could you care

For a cunning cottage we could share

The world will pardon my mush

Cause I have got a crush,

My baby, on you

I guess it depends on whether you want something on the mushy side, or with a bit more of a beat. This one definitely falls into the slow-and-gentle category!

I've thought of another one - a bit more contemporary this time. Darren Hayes (ex-Savage Garden ... another Aussie artist, sorry!) and "I Can't Get Ever Enough Of You". It's on his "Spin" album (released through Columbia/Sony).

Well I know that I have only ever held your hand

But just one touch is more than enough to understand

There's a master plan

And although I know I don't believe in destiny

Maybe it found me

Now my world is filled with so many things

But nothing compares to the touch of your skin

There's a symphony

And a melody that plays whenever you're around

I think I've been found

I can see the sun

And I can feel the rain

I can hear the wind call your name

I can feel your love

But there's one thing I can't do

I can't ever get enough of you

Now I know that in the past I've been much too keen

But your eyes are the kindest that I've ever seen

I guess there are some things you just know

There's a voice inside telling me to hold on

And never let you go

There's a tune that plays

It's a sacred sound

It's a symphony I hear whenever you're around

Now my world is filled

With a whisper of love and a promise of tomorrow

I can see the sun

And I can feel the rain

I can hear the wind call your name

I can feel your love

But there's one thing I can't do

I can't ever get enough of you

When we make love I lose track of time

I can't count all the colors I see in your eyes

And while your heart beats in mine, it's true

I can't ever get enough of you

Now my world is filled with so many things

But nothing compares to the touch of your skin

There's a symphony

And a melody that plays whenever you're around

I think I've been found

I can see the sun

And I can feel the rain

I can hear the wind call your name

I can feel your love

But there's one thing I can't do

I can't ever get enough of you

(repeat chorus)

Or, what about Savage Garden's "I Knew I Loved You" - here's the chorus...

I knew I loved you before I met you

I think I dreamed you into life

I knew I loved you before I met you

I have been waiting all my life

Do either of those help?

I've taken up enough room on here for now. Let me know if you'd like the rest of the lyrics for "I Knew I Loved You".

Savage garden...meh.

Try "By My Side" by INXS, or if you really wanna get mushy "Forever" by KISS.

Actually no - "Every time I look at you" by KISS is better.

"Every time I look at you

It's easy to see

Every time I hold you,

The things I never told you seem to come easily

Because you're everything to me"

Then again you can't get much simpler than The Ramones:

"Hey little girl,

I wanna be your boyfriend

Sweet Little girl,

I wanna be your boyfriend

Do you love me babe?

What do you say?"

Sorry mate. My deeply romantic spirit was irrepairably crushed when my fiancee gave me back my ring a few years ago. I ended up marrying her in the end after a long healing period, but I haven't been the same since.

Hope I've helped nonetheless.
