“You’re My Favorite Waste of Time” (also known as “My Favourite Waste of Time”) is a song written and first released by American singer Marshall Crenshaw. His 1979 home demo of the song was released as the B-side of his 1982 hit “Someday, Someway” and is available on his compilations The 9 Volt Years and This Is Easy: The Best of Marshall Crenshaw.
Written by Crenshaw while in Beatlemania, the song was inspired by the Hollies and featured tongue-in-cheek lyrics about his wife. The song, though originally a B-side, would later be covered by many artists, including Owen Paul, who reached number 3 in Britain with his rendition.
Bette Midler covered this song for her album No Frills, released in 1983.
