Tired of all those cliche love songs? We selected a few alternative tracks that you will most likely love. But there are also some songs that will break your heart… Each one of our team members has chosen one song to share with you. Which one do you like best?
First time I heard Juno by Gepetto and the Whales, I immediatly grabbed my notebook to write the title down. I thought it was called You Know, so it was quite a search to find the actual song. But so worth it. ‘You know, it’s only love’ and that’s the truth in this world, especially on this day.
Valentinesday means nothing but commercial crap to me. It’s not always been that way, I mean I can be kind of romantic. But I have been a bit sceptic about celebrating the big day because once I was a teenage girl in love, full of hope and joy and yet I was being dumped on February 14th. It had absolutely nothing to do with love so I call it Hallmarkday ever since. This is Sweetheart, What Have You Done To Us by Keaton Henson.
I chose this song because the happy rythms of Kakkmaddafakka is what I want to listen to if Im biking to a girl that is driving me insane in the brain.
I Can’t make you love me by Bon Iver, because love is dead.
I immediately thought of beautiful but sad love songs and it would be easy for me to pick one of those. Instead I wanted to introduce a bit happier love song by an artist you might not be familiar with: Mikhael Paskalev, singing Susie. It reminds me of the fun of being in love.
I picked Volcano by Damien Rice because of this sentences:
And What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I’ll ask for the sea
Love can be hard.
