“Girl Crush” From Little Big Town: It’s Not What You Think It Is

Little Big Town Girl CrushCurrently, radio stations across the country are being forced to pull from rotation Little Big Town’s newest single “Girl Crush”.  This is all due to some angry listeners misinterpreting the song and thinking it’s about lesbians.  If it actually was, would that really be so bad? It’s 2015, after all.   It’s not, though, so everybody just relax.  What the song is really about is a jealous ex-girlfriend wanting to put herself in the place of the current girlfriend.  She wants to live vicariously through eyes of the current and desperately wants what the current girlfriend has back.  Think we’ve all been there wondering what your ex sees in this other person that they no longer see in you as your heart breaks wanting what you once had back.

So, before getting riled up and offended by this song when see the title and barely listening to it, give it a chance and understand there is a deeper meaning.  It’s actually a great song.  It’s well-written, clever, and has a more traditional sound.

Little Big Town is a great group of talented singers.  They definitely deserve to be given a chance on this new single.  Don’t kill a great song over a little misinterpretation of the meaning.

I’ve posted the lyrics below.  Read for yourself what this song is all about, don’t be closed-minded, you just might find that you love this song as much as I do.

Just my two cents for whatever it’s worth.

“Girl Crush” by Little Big Town

“I gotta girl crush, hate to admit it but

I gotta heart rush, ain’t slowin’ down

I got it real bad, want everything she has

That smile and the midnight laugh she’s givin’ you now

I wanna taste her lips, yeah, ‘cause they taste like you

I wanna drown myself in a bottle of her perfume

I want her long blonde hair, I want her magic touch

Yeah, ‘cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much

I gotta girl crush, I gotta girl crush

I don’t get no sleep, I don’t get no peace

Thinkin’ about her under your bed sheets

The way that she’s whisperin’, the way that she’s pullin’ you in

Lord knows I’ve tried, I can’t get her off my mind

I wanna taste her lips, yeah, ‘cause they taste like you

I wanna drown myself in a bottle of her perfume

I want her long blonde hair, I want her magic touch

Yeah, ‘cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much

I gotta girl crush, I gotta girl crush

I gotta girl crush, hate to admit it but

I gotta heart rush, it ain’t slowin’ down.”
