Having a crush on someone can either be amazing or simply put: awful. With having feelings for someone comes a flurry of indescribable emotions ranging from sheer happiness, sadness, discontent, euphoria, and everything in between. It can be hard to comprehend exactly what you may be feeling so I decided to arrange a playlist of songs that can be relatable in a time like this. Enjoy!
“The Louvre” – Lorde
For me, this song describes exactly what it’s like when you first like someone. You’ll find yourself wanting to spend every minute of your time with that person, and you just feel such a rush being around them. It’s a beautiful song that will surely put you into a trance.
“Dive” – Ed Sheeran
“Dive” is a song about the fears that come with opening up to someone. “So don’t call me baby unless you mean it. Don’t tell me you need me if you don’t believe it. So let me know the truth before I dive right into you” Sheeran sings in the chorus. It can be hard opening up to someone new, especially if you’ve been wronged previously. This song perfectly captures that, while being breathtakingly beautiful.
“See You Again” – Tyler, The Creator ft. Kali Uchis
From Tyler, The Creator’s newly released album Flower Boy, “See You Again” is a dreamy love song about being infatuated with someone and wanting to live in a dream-like state with them forever. “I wonder if you look both ways before you cross my mind” him and Kali Uchis sing in the chorus.
“Love” – Lana Del Rey
Acting as the first single from her latest album Lust For Life, “Love” is a love song with a very vintage twist. “You get ready you get all dressed up to go nowhere in particular. Back to work or the coffee shop, doesn’t matter cause it’s enough to be young and in love” she sings whimsically in the chorus. This song tackles the difficulties of being young and in love while also describing how truly incredible the feeling can be.
“Face” – BROCKHAMPTON
Carrying an almost “Redbone”-esque vibe, “Face” is a song about the waiting period when you just want to be with someone and you don’t know what the hold up us. It’s a wonderfully crafted song, each verse equally as mystical and the next.
“I’m Yours” – Alessia Cara
“I’m Yours” is a song about the reluctance to knock down your built up walls when you first meet someone due to prior bad experiences. For me, this song is extremely relatable and overall a very cute song.
“Glitter” – Tyler, The Creator
Glitter is a song about what it’s like to have feelings for a friend of yours when you ultimately hope that you can be more than friends. “You light my firework, I feel like glitter. And every time you come around, I feel like glitter. You’re the one that I needed in my life. You’re the one I need to give my time.” he says in the chorus.
