  1. Depressing much?

  2. Wow. I like good LGBT artists. They come so rare though. I'd buy his album...

  3. Great song, but the video..feh. Do we really need another narrative about the "unobtainable straight guy"? Would have liked the video better if it was -- if you'll forgive the phrase -- a straight up love story between two gay men.

  4. Hmmm. I don't like the song much (don't hate it either for that matter) but kind of like the idea of gay love songs that are every bit as cheesy as hetero love songs, kitsch equality.

    Federal recognition of gay marriages AND our own Michael Bolton? We've finally arrived!

  5. They say that the only difference between a gay man and a straight man is a bottle of whiskey...guess that's not true.

  7. Interesting video. I don't think it's about the "unobtainable straight guy," I think it's a bit more ambiguous. I think it's about a guy who's not afraid to be affectionate, even sexual, with another man without getting all wrapped up in gender identity. No, the singer doesn't get a ltr with his object d'amour but, it seems, he gets a brief tryst. Sometimes, that's all you need.

  8. i'd wish him luck but with that face and a**, i don't think he needs it. Blue balls to match my eyes, but happy 4th, y'all.

  9. I like the song- found myself tapping my foot to it. Steve Grand has a decent voice, and is definitely easy on the eyes. I could personally empathize with the bittersweet theme of the video. Unrequited love is tough.

  10. Never heard of him before...but...I like the song..and the video is hot!

  11. Great song, Steve, loved it. It makes me want to grab my husband and do a romantic shadow two-step.

  12. Is the "All American Boy" in the video played by ex-Fratman Taylor?

  13. Good song. He's gorgeous, too. The guy crush looks like a younger, smoother Scott Caan, from the homoerotic TV show Hawaii Five O.

  14. Is this gay country-western?

  15. LOL @AndyTowle
    Blue balls and heartbreak.

    You fall in love with who you fall in love with, straight or not. No boyfriend but acceptance. Wonder if Steve took this from a personal experience?

  16. What Mark said. Do it gay or don't do it at all.

  17. Wow...I'm pretty sure this guy read my journal.

    Posted by: Ian | Jul 3, 2013 10:31:15 AM

  18. This is he first I've heard of Steve Grand but the he's got a good voice and the song's quality is in the league of some of those American Idol winners' commercisl hits. Both the lyrics and video are original.
    But so far there are only 484 views on YouTube as I post this comment (I toggled over to my YouTube app to watch it so I could make it 485).

    Update: In the two minutes, I've been typing (at 10:49 am ET)it's gone up to 517 views.

  19. Great Video. Great Song. It was a heart breaker. The straight guy was cool about it and they remained friends. That is the way it should be.

    Hell, straight guys (somewhat innocently like in the video) kiss girls all the time... often the girl is not interested. That does not always warrant a brutal response. I like the tone of the video and song. Cheers!

    We all have crushes on straight buddies and co-workers unfortunately we do not get a chance to show our affections in the real world.

  20. I thought this was just terrific. Sure I wish he'd ended up with the guy, but I can relate to it this way also. It didn't have a sad ending to me because the straight guy didn't reject the friendship over it.

  21. Whether the "unattainable straight guy" is a tired narrative or not, this video speaks to the very real experience of countless gay teenage boys, especially here in the flyover states. Who among us didn't spend most of our teen years tragically in love with our straight best friends? Very well done! Its like seeing a better looking version of my own high-school years!

  22. Sad story . . . but could be an ad for a Whiskey company.

    LOVE this boy. I'm Buying.

  25. would have liked it better if they ended up together at the end
