Our Favourite Aromantic Songs

Recommended Posts

It wasn't made as an aro tune but the old rugby song 'If I were the marrying kind' seems like it could fit here.

If I were the marrying kind

which thank the lord I'm not sir

The kind of man that I would wed

would be a rugby full-back

Its quite a rude song so I'll stop the lyrics here but I think you can see why I think it belongs

I'm sure plenty of people already mentioned "Never Been in Love" by Will Jay and "I am Not a Robot" by Marina and the Diamonds, so here are some other songs that, while not really as distinctly aro to me, have resonated a LOT with my aro experience.

  • "Run-Time" - Imogen Heap (cannot tell you how much this song resonated with me when I realized, in the middle of being in a 6 year long relationship, that I was aro)
  • "Wish I Never Loved You 2.0" - J-Marin & Bolshiee (it is so wonderfully refreshing to find a song about the struggles of a toxic relationship and have it be EXPLICITLY platonic, and deal with that with the sheer emotional weight the topic deserves.)
  • "Steady, As She Goes" - The Raconteurs (probably not the intention but GOD if this whole song doesn't feel like a critique of amatonormativity and the pressure to get married and have a spouse and just to be seen as normal and functional)
  • "I'll Find a Way" - Zack Hemsey (okay the part I read as aro is a very minor part and could easily be read as romantic as well but it's an overall incredible and powerful song and the lines "You are not the only way to make me whole/And I won’t ever turn my heart to stone" resonate very deeply to me as an aromantic who cares very deeply about people but detests the idea of being incomplete without your "other half")

Crush Culture by Conan Gray. Funny story, I used to absolutely love this song and listen to it all the time before I even realized I was aro. Looking back now I'm like... how did I not realize sooner?

None of the songs in the album four winds by the oh hellos have anything to do with romance as far as I know! (Or there’s some references like in oh sleeper “ my love is lying fast asleep” but from my understanding they are about something else

Maybe I was boring by Wilbur Soot, he's made a lot of aro coded songs but that one is really relatable to me :)

God, I have a perfect song but I forgot it’s name, anyone remember a chill alt song with lithro/apro/akoiro vibes?

There is a song called Lithromantic by weeklyn ft. Crymode

I believe the artist could actually be Lithromantic, but it's an indie song where the artist is venting about his experiences of (potentially) being aro-spec, or at least experiencing romantic attraction towards people and it going away when the other reciprocates.

For anyone who is the Country genre type, which yeah yeah I know not a lot of people are and I barely listen to it myself, but I couldn't help but want to find songs that have queer vibes in them - and what better than the ones that have the artist want to live alone, and so could be interpreted as aromantic*?

1) Southern Nights by Glenn Campbell 

- the song is just about the singer sharing a love they have for the South in mainly just the landscape and nights -

2) Cowpoke by Colter Wall

- the singer rejoicing in being a lonesome wanderer, a cowpoke/cowboy (the melody is very beautiful too) -

3) (I Got Spurs That) Jingle, Jangle, Jingle by Kay Kriser & His Orchestra

- once again the singer being happy that they're single -

4) Quiet, Heavy Dreams by Zach Bryan

- the singer trying to hold onto the hope that there's still someone out there for them, but the song gives off a vibe that the singer knows that it's not destined to be -

5) And It's Still Alright by Nathaniel Rateliff

- the song deals with depression and how life is going to be extremely tough, and has this vibe of the singer dealing with being alone and losing friends and trying to find comfort within themself, since at the end of the day, you're all you got -

6) I'd Have to Think About It by Leith Ross

- the singer singing about their dreams of hopefully falling in love (or if you interpret the song as aro-spec, then maybe potentially falling in love) in the future, but when faced with the actuality of others loving them in the moment, they freeze up -

7) Rivers and Roads by The Head and The Heart

- the singer(s) talking about how they'll lose friends and be distant with their family, and yet there'll still be someone (a qpp or a best friend) that they'll always go out to find, and how if others can't relate to them then there's nothing for them to say -

8) Have You Ever Seen The Rain? by Credence Clearwater Revival

- the singer goes on about the toughness of life and yet how beautiful it can be, and the singer using an aspect of nature to convey their feelings gives off aro vibes to me, much like Southern nights -

9) Going Up The Country by Canned Heat

- the singer going on about going to a far off place that is paradise to them which involves being away from society and it's problems, and inviting others like them to join in reaching that place -

10) Gals Don't Mean A Thing by Johnny Bond

- the singer explaining how in their young life they've already been through and through with the blues, so much to where said blues don't really stay, simply because they can't love people like how they're "supposed" to -

(this song in particular actually makes me wonder if there were artists who were most definitely aromantic*, but just didn't have that word to describe themselves and probably just dubbed themselves straight (especially if they were heterosexual anyway) or maybe even queer if they were comfortable with that)

11) Long Haired Country Boy by The Charlie Daniels Band

- gives off the-angry-aro-who-wants-to-be-left-the-hell-alone vibes to me -

12) They Say It's Wonderful - from "Annie Get Your Gun" by Doris Day

- the singer goes over how many people say that falling in love is the most amazing thing, how they obsess over it, and how the singer can't exactly relate and is annoyed that they're just told rather than given an explanation -


Honorable Mentions:

Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver

I've Been Everywhere by Johnny Cash

Call Me The Breeze by Lynyrd Skynyrd (my favorite "aro" country song ever)

Don't Ask Me No Questions by Lynyrd Skynyrd
