Get the thought that romantic songs have to be slow and mellow out of your head, because they don’t! If you’re an alternative music fan (which I assume you are or you wouldn’t be reading this), you’ll know that our genre has artists expressing their love with a very different tone. From pop punk ballads to heavy, screamo vocals, and everything in between, it’s a known fact that alternative music makes better lovers.
Now that the thought is non-existent in your head, here are a few tracks, the staff at Remember MEdia have picked, that you can enjoy on this day of love… You may also find a song and for that ‘Secret Valentine’. Here we go!
1. Secret Valentine – We The Kings
There is no better time for this song to be shared – literally! This song has had us wanting to share it with our valentine ever since it came out. And some of us may have even hoped that Travis would sing it to us (though he’s now married, so any hope of that is out the window) while others simply hoped that their Valentine may be a guitar player and play it for them on this special day (okay, maybe that was only me… just kidding!). Either way, why not share this track with that someone you still haven’t asked out for V-Day! What are you waiting for!?
2. Rebel Love Song – Black Veil Brides
If you’re in a forbidden relationship, or maybe just an unorthodox one where you’re parents or society might not approve, this is the song for you. While we’re typically used to hearing songs about relationships constituting the two people involved, BVB wrote us this one highlighting taboo relationships that are affected by outer factors. So if you’re looking for a Valentine’s day song that is relatable to you and the one you dream of running away with, BVB has you covered.
3. You Had Me At Hello – A Day To Remember
Ah a classic! If you don’t already know it, listen! This is to that person you’ll be missing this Valentines Day. Why not let them know they’re missed and share it with them?
4. Ashley – Escape the Fate
Is your Valentine’s name Ashley? If so, look no further! Let Ashley know she’s special! How can she not feel appreciated with lyrics like “Ashley baby, You make me feel so alive. I’ve got purpose once again“ and “You’re the reason I still try“. Oh who am I kidding, she’ll love the entire song!
5. Meg Ryan Would Play You In The Movie – Broadway
For those relationships that are having doubts, troubles, and challenges, here’s one for you. Know that if you both are committed to the relationship, no matter what anyone says, it will work out. “Let’s take our time. Cause I just know that rushing a romance is a guaranteed killer.” Take it slow and easy. A song you surely need to send to that special someone to let them know you’re in it for the long haul.
6. Kiss Me (cover) – New Found Glory
We all know the 90’s classic, Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer. Buy if you want a pop punk version of the song, New Found Glory has you covered. The song is self explanatory so hey, wanna be kissed this Valentines Day by that special someone? Why not make the first move, and play this song in the background?
7. Guardian Angel – Abandon All Ships
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about couples and lovers. Here’s one to let that special someone, be it a lover, family member or friend, know that you’ll always be there for them. What a sweet thought!
8. You’re All I See – The Word Alive
Here’s one to remind that one person how much they mean to you and how you will keep fighting for them no matter what.
9. Follow You – Bring Me The Horizon
This is one mellow, lovey BMTH song. I don’t think it matters if you’re into loud music or not, this one is sure to make anyone feel loved, and can be enjoyed no matter what genre you love! The breakdown in this song is absolutely epic, and really? With lyrics like “You can drag me through hell, if it meant I could hold your hand, I will follow you because I’m under your spell“, who wouldn’t melt?
And here are a few more to get you in the V-Day spirit!
