If you are crushing on someone, then you'll definitely appreciate this list. Here's our ranked list of songs about crushes, voted on by fans users like you. Music may have been invented to express this feeling, and songs about having a crush are amongst the most powerful expressions in all of recorded music. Whether it's an innocent high school crush or something more serious later in life, these crush songs will either help you get over that special someone, or make you think about them even more.

The pantheon of great crush songs, the all-time "you're tearing my insides out and it might very well kill me" rocker is "Layla" by Eric Clapton.
