Rebecca and Greg
"Settle For Me" is a song Rebecca imagined being performed by Greg Serrano when he asked her out on a date. In it he attempts to make a case for them being together by suggesting she give up on Josh and go fir sometime be more attainable like him. The song was first heard in the Season One episode "I'm Going on a Date with Josh's Friend!". The song is track number 10 on the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Original Television Soundtrack (Season 1 - Vol.1).

The song with lyricsEdit

Settle for Me (feat03:30

Settle for Me (feat. Santino Fontana) - "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

Lyrics:

When we’re together,
I feel so grand.
My heart goes tippity-tap-tap-tap
When I hold your hand.
But I know there’s another guy
You fancy more,
So even though
I’m not the one you adore,
Why not
Settle for me?

Darling, just settle for me.
I think you’ll have to agree
We make quite a pair!
I know I’m only second place in this game
But like 2% milk
Or Seitan Beef
I almost taste the same!
So won’t you settle for me?
Come on and settle for me!
Say yes or no
Before I choke on all this swallowed pride!
I have no problem being picked
Out from the bottom,
If he’s your broken condom,
I’m Plan B,
So lower those expectations
And settle for me.
Am I ok with this?
Totally!

(Oh sweet, a gown!)
Settle for me.
Babycakes just settle for me.
Schmoopy pie, I’m begging you please
Can’t you see the light?
Sugar jugs, I’m so bereft
Demeaning terms are all that I have left
Of my masculinity,
So settle for me!

(So twirly!)
Little girl, don’t make me feel like a little girl,
Exposed and raw,
Whose boobs can’t even fill a training bra.
Let’s pretend I didn’t say that!
Settle for me.
(It’s a practical proposal!)
Settle for me.
(It makes a certain sense!)
He’s a fantasy,
But hey,
Let’s think this through.
Yes, Josh is a dream,
But I’m right here
In flesh and blood and self-hate.
Settle for me!
In a sad way, darling, it’s fate.

—tapping—

(You’re like Rocky 5 to Rocky)
Solange to Beyonce,
Not asking to be your fiancé,
But if tonight -or tomorrow-
If you happen to be free,
Maybe,
Just maybe
Settle for me!
So what’ll it be?
Can you hurry up and decide,
A dip’s kind of supposed to be a quick thing?
(Uh…)


NotesEdit

AwardsEdit

On July 14, 2016 the Emmy awards nominations were announced and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" was a contender in four categories including "Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics" for "Settle For Me". The choreography Kathryn Burns did for the dance sequence of this song and two others was also nominate for an Emmy which she won on September 11, 2016.

Other appearancesEdit

HomageEdit

The song itself was done in the style of Cole Porter while the dance routine was inspired by classic Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire . Music producer Adam Schlesinger and his collaborator Steven M. Gold told Variety.com that the original melody for the sing which Rachel Bloom pitched was much slower but they decided to speed it up more and make it 'jauntier' which complimented the tap dance part of the performance a lot better.
