Darren Hayes - Crush (1980 ME) Lyrics

Cyndi Lauper
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
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's 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

  46. kisstochka14


  47. Brigitte Yopasa

    Yess,2018.octuber.30.salutes from Bogotá Colombia.OK.

  48. Pritish Appadoo

    Ladies and gentlemen, the rightful successor to Savage Garden's single "I Want You": fast paced, filled with energy, deliriously delightful and heartwarming. Darren Hayes = the super DJ of nostalgia.

  49. Светлана Найдёнова

    Mark Rodin

  72. Lifeless

    Why did u stop making song?

  73. ava2099

    I always felt dissapointed when the bad guy grabbs darren by his shirt, wouldve been better if he got ghetto or kung fu on the guys ass or at least push him away :/

    the writer in me

    Darren is peaceful and classy. When they go lower we go higher.

  74. ava2099

    Good video as well as good song :D

  75. kelman727

    Greatest song Wham! never made.

    Darren's dad is the baldie behind the desk.

    The guy that whacked him around when he was a boy.

    Nina King

    kelman727 They're were both amazing! 😁

  76. Karime Lapizco

    He is so cute love him!

  77. Yamilet Aldino


  78. Deborah Watson

    Love this.....

  79. Alisha Bouchard

    Wish they'd make a song like this about the 90s. :)

    Pritish Appadoo

    Hehehe ;-) I guess I feel kinda same about the 1990s as Darren does about the 1980s. Only the musicians I would reference would be Savage Garden, Natalie Imbruglia, Jennifer Paige, Ricky Martin and No Doubt (very different from those mentioned by Anne Marie therefore). As for TV shows, even in my late 1990s childhood I still watched 1980s stuff such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Inspector Gadget, as well as Rugrats & The Magic School Bus.

  80. Andrea Patricia Crowley

    I really love Darren style,the way he sings like if he were flirting with the camera,he looks really stunning in this video. And when he makes that rivalry with the other guy daamn he looks so fine,well the other actor isn't that ugly either. What i mean is Darren has the ability to play with the camera and make the cam loves him back as well. Also the environment is about young people having great fun

  81. Gri Kurt

    Choose Life.

  82. Nisa Benthon

    I feel old listening this song! But... man... how I LOVE IT!

  83. Alex Nic

    This is mixed differently than the album version (I guess radio edit?); think it's edited too. But never knew they made a video for it, awesome.

    Hailey Roberts

    I knew it sounded different! Is the mixing slightly different as well?

  84. Dinozinho Ph

    darren um anjo lindo, olhar divino oceano, meu viver...

  85. Ravindra Karan Singh

    Why he ditch that red dress girl 😲

  86. A Man From 80s

    i like this 80's like songs era!!

  87. HipUsername

    Whenever my bf does something that makes me mad I make him sing this song to me and he does it and it's the most hilarious thing ever because he tries so hard to hit the high notes but he can't and he's Chinese which makes it funnier for some reason and I have no choice but to forgive him it's like the key to any relationship issues yes I am drunk

    Veronica V


  88. Sybarite Sphynx

    This was (still is) my jam

  89. Mukss 79


  90. ford explore

    love this song.

  91. nunya bidness

    I didn't like this song at first. Now I love it. Funny how it worked out. Lol!!

    Raisa Cherry

    It happens to me at times like when i hear a song i didnt like initially but all of a sudden get glued to that unliked song lol.

  92. wollypollywakadoodle

    I love this video & song so much! I miss going to the arcade to play Mrs. Pac-Man & Galaga. Thanks for bringing me good memories Darren :)

  93. Ashley Elliott

    I love Darren Hayes! I remember when that album came out. I had to have it, and still have it to this day. One of my all time favorites!

    Sly Mr.Perfect

    Ashley Elliott this song brings back so many memories. The first time I listened to it was when I was in my high school.. Darren Hayes fan here

    Darya Darya

    I remember when this video came and I watch only in internet in very low quality(( because mtv in my country did not show this video
