Big Time Rush Wiki

"Big Time Love Song" is the fifth episode of the first season of Big Time Rush. It first aired on Nickelodeon on February 5, 2010.


Griffin wants a slow love song for Big Time Rush's next song, but Gustavo, who has hired Freight Train as his new executive "in charge of making people do what he says", can't seem to figure out how to make the song work. The guys chase a beautiful new girl in town named Jo Taylor, causing the band to fight over her. James gets a severe allergic reaction to a recalled man body spray called 'Cuda' and Kelly attempts to make him get a shot. When James is at the doctor for his allergy shot, the other guys try to impress Jo. Carlos gets to go first (after drawing leaves) and pretends to be a bad boy because Logan said girls like bad boys second-most but when Jo said she hates bad boys in real life and asks why they are so angry all the time he introduces himself as an Englishman named "Reginald Salisbury" which girls like the most, which was Logan's plan, despite that none of the band members are from England. When it is Logan's turn Camille stops him by pretending she's "auditioning" for the drama series, One Tree Hill and kisses him. Kendall doesn't even get the chance to talk to her because she left. At the pool, Kendall has his attempt but is stopped by Freight Train to record their song, called Any Kind of Guy. The boys record the song but James can't sing because he is wearing a gas mask due to his Cuda man body spray allergy. Kendall, Carlos and Logan try to go back to impress Jo until Freight Train once again stops them. However, he tells Gustavo that he was impressed and likes the song telling him that it's not that bad and if he was a girl and someone sang it to him, he would be really touched. They fight again only to be stopped by Freight Train's bear hug entrapping them.

Then Logan brings Guitar Dude under Jo's apartment to sing but Carlos and Kendall push him and fight making the song faster and faster than originally intended. Then, Jo puts both her hands up and makes them stop and tells them while the song was great, she already has a boyfriend back home in North Carolina, thus stating that, at least for now, she is taken. Kendall, Logan and Carlos are surprised but she tells them that they can all stay friends, which they ultimately agree on. Camille tells Jo that boys are stupid (except for her own crush, Logan). Gustavo records the song, which is now in it's current form as a faster-paced love song, not a slow one, and Griffin ends up liking it, but still requests of a slow love song, and "with the word 'baby' in it".

The boys promise never to fight over girls ever again; however, after seeing another pretty new girl with curly hair looking for directions to the Palm Woods Gym named Rachel Leann, they all fight once again.


Meanwhile, Katie has to make a report about the person she most adores. She had to choose between Eleanor Roosevelt or Gustavo. She chose Gustavo. When her mom drops her off, Gustavo gives her 4 questions to ask. After Gustavo has problems writing the song, Katie keeps writing bad things. Finally they get to the Palm Woods and after figuring out things, Gustavo completes the song and Katie comes out with a brilliant report.

  • Degrassi Mention: Camille auditioned for Degrassi in a cheer leading uniform so, it is implied that she might have been auditioning for the part of Marisol Lewis or a member of the Power Squad (Cheer leading Squad).
  • Degrassi Goof: Camille couldn't have really been auditioning for Degrassi because Degrassi auditions are in Toronto, Canada and to be eligible, and for funding reasons, you must be a Canadian citizen.
