crushes and covers

This weekend I saw The Last King of Scotland
Great movie - A bit graphic/gory at times, but a good story. (It is the story of Idi Amin, the president /dictator of Uganda from 1970-1979...and all the corruption and genocide that ensued during his reign.) On a lighter note, one of the main characters is my new celebrity crush. . James McAvoy. You may remember him as Mr. Tumnus the fawn, from The Chronicles of Narnia. Judging from his pics on, he is cuter in films. I think it was the Scottish accent in The Last King of Scotland that got me.. I have a thing for accents apparently.

Is it possible to have a 'crush' on a song? How else would you describe the short lived obsession with a song that causes you to download it and play on repeat (and perhaps sing it ridiculously loudly in your car, by yourself)? I know other people who do this too, I'm not crazy! Anyway, I currently am a fan of the Jim Sturgess covers of Beatles songs from the Across the Universe soundtrack. Particularly "Girl", "Something", and "All My Loving." Check him out on the soundtrack, or more simply, on his myspace artist profile -
