what is your favorite aro-coded song or songs?


Recommended Posts

I don't have a favorite but I have a list of a few:

• Prom dress. (If you listen closely to the lyrics you can hear it.)

• Never been in love

• Version of love

• Love love love

• Turning out

• Don't miss me

(I probably have more which I can add later.)

These aren't strictly aro songs but I can recommend some great songs that aren't about romance or sex (which it seems like 99% of song are about).

 

Most aros, myself included, seem to appreciate the value of platonic relationships. I really like "That's What Friends Are For" - Dionne Warwick ft Elton John, Stevie Wonder & Gladys Knight. Perhaps the greatest platonic love song of all time?

"(Something Inside) So Strong" by Labi Siffre and "Risin' To The Top" by Keni Burke are two of my favourite songs as well. They're really about self belief and inner strength and I find them really inspiring.

"The Living Years" by Mike + the Mechanics is a really powerful song about the relationship between a son and his father.

Lots of people sadly seem to think that a romantic relationship is the ultimate life experience and that passionate romantic love songs are the most moving songs, but it's not true. I think the above songs are really touching and don't explore romance at all.

At the moment, "Crush Culture" by Conan Gray, but it's been stuck in my head for three days and if it doesn't leave soon I'm going to get sick of it. 

that one is amazing as well :)

I really like "Despair"! It's not necessarily about being aro, but I've always interpreted it like this. Same goes for "Emotional Machine", "Oh No!" and "I Am Not A Robot".

despair by leo.?
