ARTICLE/ SOUNDTRACK FOR ROMANCE



 

 

Not every romancer has the talents of a bard . . . 

not to mention that courtyard mandolin odes have gone out of style. Fortunately, love is still a fairly common theme in today’s music. Play these tracks for your muse, even though you didn’t write them—it’s the thought that counts, after all.

 

Carly Rae Jepsen / Run Away With Me

Ok, it’s a bold beginning, but tell us that saxophone doesn’t sound like the uncontrollable grin of infatuation. Perfect for spur-of-the-moment weekend excursions.

 

Anderson .Paak / The Bird

Smooth and sunny, appreciative of the one who came into your life (to you, it feels like they flew).

 

Angel Olsen / Shut Up Kiss Me

Opening lyric: “I ain’t hanging up this time.” Subverting the cutesy “no, you hang up first!” line, the track shows that love can be cool, sassy and still just as true.

 

Frank Ocean / Self Control

Sometimes being in love’s pretty, sometimes not so much. Sometimes both at once. Aching, but oh so honest.

 

Courtney Barnett / Depreston

Love is exciting, but sometimes it can be about fending off suburban ennui by focusing on bits of domestic bliss. Moving into a new place, stressed but together. Barnett makes a simple French press into a symbol of shared mornings and lives.

 

dvsn  /  Hallucinations

Soulful falsetto that captures how you feel when your lover’s not around, an icy beat that’s like driving a long way to visit and staying patient until you arrive. Unfortunate but real, this is a long-distance jam.

 

Beach House  /  Take Care

A simple promise that holds a lot of weight, looking into the future but not too far. This one is a modern waltz for quiet living-room swaying.
