For those of you looking for love songs today, Grimy Goods has quite the love song playlist for you! And these aren’t just any type of love songs, these songs about love all derive from rock ‘n’ roll genres. Post punk love songs, electro rock love songs, classic rock love songs, soft rock love songs, emo rock love songs, doo-wop love songs, blues rock love songs, punk rock love songs, and of course today’s modern indie rock love songs. I’m talkin’ Pulp to Depeche Mode, Elvis Presley and the Shangri-La‘s, Arcade Fire and The Vaccines, all the way to the New York Dolls and Sharon Van Etten. We even have some anti-love songs up in the mix such as Crystal Castles‘ “Not In Love” featuring The Cure’s Robert Smith.
No matter what age you are, this love song playlist is going to hit all the feels. My eyes are tearing up as I write this because Pulp’s “Common People” just played. I walked own the aisle to that song. Not only does this Valentine’s Day playlist feature a few of my wedding songs, but it also includes personal songs of love and heartbreak from past relationships. It’s definitely tugging on my heartstrings today. I’m sure many of you can relate to these songs.
P.S. That final track … ugh … still makes me ugly cry. I finally have that kind of love.
