Number One Crush

"#1 Crush" is a song by Garbage, released internationally on the b-side to their debut release "Vow", and in the United Kingdom on the b-side to second single "Subhuman".

In 1996, the track was remixed by Nellee Hooper and Marius de Vries for the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's modernised William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet movie adaptation. The remix of "#1 Crush" peaked at #1 on Billboard's Hot Modern Rock Tracks, where it stayed for four weeks, and as of 2010 is Garbage's sole #1 entry on any US chart. It was nominated for Best Song From a Movie at the 1997 MTV Movie Awards. "#1 Crush" was the first of two hit singles from the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack; "Lovefool" by The Cardigans continued the success of the compilation.

In 2007, the remix of "#1 Crush" was remastered and included on Garbage's greatest hits album Absolute Garbage.

Famous quotes containing the words crush and/or number:

    Man is but a reed, the feeblest one in nature; but he is a thinking reed. The entire universe need not arm itself to crush him—a vapor, a drop of water suffices to kill him. But if the universe were to crush him, man would still be nobler than that which killed him, because he knows that he dies and the advantage which the universe has over him; the universe knows nothing of this.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    In the multitude of middle-aged men who go about their vocations in a daily course determined for them much in the same way as the tie of their cravats, there is always a good number who once meant to shape their own deeds and alter the world a little.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
