Acceptable romantic music


Recommended Posts

what do people here think about romantc music. i suppose i am a bit of a grouch about the whole 'not another love song, dont we have enough' thing but there are some i can appreciate.

are you ok with it, find it uncomfortable, how do you feel about it.

are there any romantic songs you find ok to listen to? perhaps beautiful in their own way, or maybe silly enough to be ok with?

 

ok, admittedly this is largely an excuse to post the hippopotamus song because i find it very funny. (and acceptable to me because it is about the least romantic love song i can think of)

Romance in music doesn't bother me. I can still appreciate the sound, relate the music to my OCs, interpret the song as being about a different type of relationship, or just enjoy the VibesTM- because even though I can't relate, I still appreciate how romance can evoke powerful emotion and visuals in things like music and poetry. Many of my favorite songs are about romance, like Cosmic Love by Florence + The Machine.

If it's rock n roll I'm good with it. Hair Metal was big when I was a kid so there's a nostalgia thing for me in the power ballads.

But not country. This whole week I've had to listen to country on the pa at work and I am totally fucking over it. Every day I hear 20 different "I'm in love/ I love my wife/ we broke up/ my spouse is dead" songs in each category. If I had any remaining doubts about being aro they have been put to rest for good.

I can still appreciate it if it is well written, and if I love the rythm, the voice of the singer, etc. For instance, recentlt I surprised myself in loving the French singer Hoshi, even if I am usually not a fan of French modern music. And it makes me even more happy cause she is a lesbian artist and it is great to see LGBT people succeed.

I just like her voice and I think she has great texts.

 

It is true that a reason why i came to love Broadway is because I can find there more variety in themes, but it doesn't mean I can't love a good romantic song !

a few comes to mind. i listen to romance songs because of their melody but i will list the ones that actually has good lyrics

  1. want to be cremated. a tragic love story. the protagonist and franny; his lover had a child but she died giving birth and the protagonist ended up committing suicide
  2. shes a riot. idk just some really funky romantic dynamic. the lyrics hits hard
  3. 2 bed 2 bath [and a ghost]. not necessarily romance? but its about roberts dead wife haunting him trying to kill him so they can reunite in the afterlife. sounds fucked up but actually pretty sweet

and that would be my top three. thank you for listening to my ted talk

Taylor Swift songs. Like (almost) all of them. A pretty basic answer, but they really slap 💁‍♀️

The AJR obsessed child I am, I constantly swing between Turning Out and Turning Out pt. II (both by that band). 

Also, as a side note, if anyone is looking for songs that have little or nothing to do with romance but are still, you know, significant feeling, I would highly recommend AJR. Most of their songs are ironic and little on the surface level but are very relatable if you dive deeper.

Michael Jackson songs. Some Eurobeat. Some Vaporwave.

 

If I think its romantic I will never enjoy it. If it is romantic to others but I can spin it for myself and make it about something else it works. Really subjective I know. 
 

 

 


 

A neat trick for repulsed Aros like me who hates when anything becomes romantic. Works sometimes but not guaranteed.
 

When She / Her is spoken, She is not a person… no no no. Think abstract, I sometimes create super deep weird metaphors that sometimes don’t even make sense to justify it lol.

Anyway to my point. She is more than a person. She is the Boogie, the groove, the funk, the frequency. Her charms, beauty, spunk, smile, sparkling eyes. Thats the frequency,  euphoria in your ears, the beat. She is not limited to a physical corporeal shell, she is free from the shackles of flesh. 
 

She is the music her smile that makes MJ go eheee!!! is that soul power that makes you want to get down on it. move your feet, fling your arms, makes you feel it.. Do u feel it now Mr Krabs?….She is soul power.

 

Some songs just don’t hit me as super romantic for whatever reason. Im extremely picky over this, and can’t find any strong rhyme or reasons for why.

Some times I can provide a reason. A thousand miles reminds me of being a younger kid, old youtube, nostalgic, makes me remember good memories from the past. A simpler time in my life. This is one of the only songs that gets a pass though, a lot of other ones from the time I won’t like. 
 

A lot of old sappy love songs my folks like for the memories they relate with those songs. We heard this on a road trip or at the beach / school played this, did this dance to it. The lyrics and meaning of the song aren’t always super important to the listener. 

Yeah, That’s about it…
