Thank you to everyone who posted here or private messaged me trying to help me locate the name of the singer from my last post. Saturday morning I awoke to bazillion messages with different names, websites and potential artists – all of which were wrong but I appreciate the effort, regardless.
I spent another good portion of Saturday morning chatting with Jesse hoping she would remember. Jesse has the worst memory of anyone I know and our conversation went something like this:
Me: “Remember back in the day when I had that mixed tape with the Mandy Moore song I used to belt out when we’d go on our road trips?”
Jesse: “Yes. Vaguely.”
Me: “Well the song was on that tape. We both liked it. The guy was cute.”
Me: “I’m leaning more to his name being Craig rather than David.”
Jesse: “And it’s not Craig David?”
Me: “Nope. It might not be Craig.”
Jesse: “You suck!”
The more I thought about it the more I leaned toward his name being Craig. And I was convinced he was Canadian and I was certain this damn song had been in the top 30 – although searching years of archives from Much Music and the like turned.up.nothing!
Then last night I finally got around to searching “Canadian Singer Craig” and BAM! There he was.
Craig Smart. (Although this video credits also his old group D-Cru – I don’t recollect that – but at least I had his name.) AND this video was totally a top 10 hit back in the day. He’s not as cute as I remember but, aside from that ridiculous “mustache” he’s pretty adorable (I think he reminded me of my ex boyfriend back then, maybe that was part of the appeal.); and his eyes are piercingly blue. And the song is pretty.
So, there you go….my question has been answered. Thank you all for your assistance. And if you want a really good chuckle check out the comments underneath the video.
