Love Songs Needed

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by LizardKing3, Jul 23, 2005.

  1. I am attempting to make a "sappy hardcore" mix CD for someone.

    I could use some ideas for songs; I want punkish or hardcore love songs. If you have funny love songs post the name and title as well, can't hurt.

    Box Car Racer has alot of "love songs" I guess they'd be called, and Blinks new album, some of the songs fit the bill. Fall Out Boy - Sugar Were Going down counts in my book. Way Away by Yellow Card.

    Thats about everything I can think of, If I think of more I'll come back though.

    I actually made a "love songs" mix for a girlfriend that included this song, My Michelle and Used to Love Her. What can I say, I date girls with twisted senses of humor.

    Do instrumentals count? One of these that I've always thought is very romantic-sounding is Frank Zappa's "Watermelon In Easter Hay". It's just a long guitar solo over a repeating chord progression, but the mood is adequate for a romantic music CD, IMO. And I know that "Watermelon In Easter Hay" isn't a romantic title, but coming from Zappa... fortunately he didn't come up with this title (another "sensitive instrumental ballad for late-nite easy listening" from him, according to the CD's liner notes) for this cool tune.

    For the sappiest of the sappy (though they've worked for me before):

    Get Up Kids - I'll Catch You
    Rocket Summer - That's So You (sappiest song EVER, but I like it dammit!!!), Goodbye Waves and Driveways

    For not-so-sappy yet always good:

    Eric Clapton - Wonderful Tonight
    Tsunami Bomb - The Simple Truth
    Dropkick Murphys - Forever
    Emery - Ponytail Parades (if she tries to dump you, I guess), The Note From Which This Chord is Built

    I also second on the Ataris one too. They've got some pretty nifty love songs too.
  20. if this is for a girl.. forget the CD... go with a mix tape... nothing sez romantic/love/i love you like a mix tape ;)
