‘Girl Crush’ is just ‘Joleen’ (though not as good)

S ome country radio stations are refusing to play Little Big Town’s current single, “Girl Crush,” because some listeners hear the line “I’ve got a girl crush” and assume the song is promoting a “gay agenda.”

The song is just a modern spin on the same idea behind Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”

Girl Crush

I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Because maybe then
You’d want me just as much
I got a girl crush

Jolene

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

 

I like that the woman in the new song is more empowered, but otherwise, it goes without saying that “Jolene” remains the better song.
