As per requested: Here’s some of those
25 songs that are about friendship and family. A few of these are included just because
they describe my aromantic experience so well- Like Solo Dance. Pardon me
all music-geeks; if I get the genres wrong. Also: Feel free to suggest songs to
me! I listen to most kinds of music.
Kodaline – Brother Genre: Radio-friendly guitar rock
Icona Pop – Girlfriend Genre: Pop! This could be about love if you’d want to, or a gun, or as in this cover: two best friends.
Starley, Ryan Riback – Call On Me Genre: Edm. Doesn’t a lot of us want a friend we could call when we’re down- and be that person in
Martin Jensen – Solo Dance Genre: Edm
K.Flay – Thicker Than Dust Genre: Electropop
Foster The People, Lost Kings – Best Friend Genre: Edm
Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth – See You Again Genre: Hip
Bruno Mars – Count On Me Genre: Pop?
Spice Girls – Wannabe Genre: Pop. This one is on the edge of being out of this list- But there’s just something so sweet about them putting so much importance on friendship?
War – Why can’t we be friends Genre: Idk. Why can’t all people just forget about their differences and be friends?
Red Hot Chili Peppers – My Friends Genre: Rock
Andrew Gold – Thank you for being a friend Genre:
Clean Bandit, Sean Paul, Anne-Marie, Shaked – Rockabye Genre: Edm. About a mother who does her best to take care of her child.
Childish Gambino – 3005 Genre: Hip hop/Rap. According
to the artist this is about wanting to spend time with a person (that doesn’t have to be a romantic partner), or just yourself. Very cool!
Moses Sumney – Quarrel Genre: Indie, Alternative.
Listen to the text, and you’ll see. From his album “Aromanticism”
Queen – You’re my best friend Genre: Rock. Apparently
this was written to the writer’s wife, but since the emphasis is around their
friendship I think it still counts.
Bill Withers – Lean on me Genre: Soul?
Again, please send me music. This playlist can’t be
allowed to be this short.
