“Crush Me” by Fuller is a pop rock song full of courage. It gave me a much-needed reminder: life is for living, don’t let fear hold you back.”
The song starts off with a bang with a guitar that carries its fiery rock energy throughout. Fuller’s alternative, rock tone is akin to hits by the All American Rejects. The production adds complexity and slower portions that enhance the emotion of the song and make the faster-paced segments stand out. These lyrics are bold. On his knees, he commands life, “don’t let me down easy” because risks are worth taking and he is not going to let fear stop him. Fuller’s J.P Welsh says, “Crush Me is a song about running headfirst into life. It's about knowing that I might fail, but not fearing failure, because never trying would be the biggest failure of all...Live your life. Have fun.”
