Welcome to SANDYLAND!!


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.”
Jesse: “OKay.”
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.

  1. Wow, Sandy. You went through lots of trouble for this. The song isn’t bad, but the video leaves some things to be desired (or left out). I looked at the comments. A few chuckles – you were right about that – some from 3,4,5 years ago. Hmmm.

    • The song has been on my mind (off and on) for years now and I just never got around to looking it up (I usually just forgot by the time I’d reached a computer) so yeah, it became a weekend mission.

      The song itself is pretty but the video – Oy! I don’t know if it was a lack of funds or if they’d lost a bet but it’s horrible. And it was the summer of 2000 when a lot of videos were shit. Haha.

      • Well, your search is over, and now you can concentrate on your next post with a clear mind (?) ! Have a great week – what’s left. 🙂
