Ordinary language is all right.

'crush list', what a useful way of putting it.
As a crush list my list of essential texts would not be too exciting. Or even very long. I'm like a prudish, pious, faithful housewife in that way.
The new Basement Jaxx album Kish Kash certainly is exciting, but now I feel all weak and limp.

Got to cover all my bases.
The former is better because it emphasizes, if I may put it in a lazily sub-Deleuzean way because my nose itches and I am tired, the sound the music has of becoming, of constant incipience. Hearing the 'going to break' over and over and over again.

There's like one joke in Nelson Goodman's Languages of Art but I will grudgingly admit that the man had a sense of humor. In The Philosophical Review, Volume 61, Issue 2, he wrote: 'The explanation in terms of resemblance is very good except for being so wrong.'
