Valentine’s Day POPsessions: Midas Whale Pour Some ‘Sugar’ on Yahoo
Who was your first musical crush?
RYAN: Karen Carpenter. She just really gets me, you know? "Don't you remember you told me you loved me, baby..."
What song was playing during your first kiss?
JON: My first kiss was in no way romantic. I snuck out of the house and met up with this girl I'd been crushing on for a few months. Of all the places we could have found for a quiet moment, we chose to walk around the track of a nearby high school. All I heard was the buzz of the street light on the field house.
What is the best makeout song of all time?
RYAN: Nothing gets me in the mood like a little pop organ (maybe Dick Delaney's "Twilight Time") or William Shatner (check out "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"), but I think Saint-Saens's "Mon Coeur S'ouvre a ta Voix" from "Sampson and Delilah" is probably the greatest love melody of all time. (I prefer the instrumental version that Reader's Digest did in their "100 Most Beautiful Melodies: compilation.)
What's the best breakup song ever?
JON: Ohhhh, there are a lot of good ones. Here are some of my favorites: "Somebody That I Used to Know," but by ELLIOTT SMITH. "These Days" by Jackson Browne. "Don't Think Twice" by Bob Dylan.
