I’m a huge lyric person. If the lyrics aren’t on point in a song, it’s really hard for me to enjoy it. Instead, I end up spending the duration of the song either correcting recorded grammatical errors or annoyed with the inevitable repetition of the chorus.
However, alternative/emo/hardcore/post-hardcore/pop punk, etc. music has always resonated with me because it keeps me guessing, and it so fully represents the entire spectrum of emotions I have on any given day, whether it’s rage, hope, sadness, or love.
So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here’s an accessible alternative playlist full of songs about love that you’re sure to adore. You can find it here on Spotify. I hope you are as enamored with these tracks as I am.
What are your favorite love songs?
